Back in the 80’s I did weight lifting. I experience sciatica leg pain after some heavy leg workouts. I didn’t know what it was but it slowly dissipated, so I didn’t think much about it. However, in 2012 I started experiencing the same pain. Unlike before, the pain started to intensify. For 3 years I endured leg pain which I thought was a sciatic nerve problem that would eventually go away. I was sent to PT to see if that would help but unfortunately, it just made the pain worse. I also had spinal injection, which also had very limited success. By the time I first saw Dr. Kupershtein I was experiencing severe pain running down the back of my left hamstring that felt like muscle cramping, along with this I also had the same pain running down the outside of my shin, and tingling in my foot. Standing up straight would just make everything worse. Moving around meant standing, hunched over, like I was 90. I was a mess!!! After ordering up a MRI of my lower spinal area, Dr Kupershtein explained that I was dealing with a spinal stenosis – narrowing of spinal canal, and it’s that which is causing me the pain. In my case it was caused by a herniated disc, arthritis, and a thickening of the ligament between the vertebrae. Dr. Kupershtein took the time to fully explain the exact problem. We tried to control the pain with drugs but finally determined that surgery was needed. I had spinal laminectomy surgery in July, and 2 months after I am now pain free. Dr. Kupershtein was a godsend as far as I’m concerned. If I had to go through it again Dr. Kupershtein would be the only doctor I would go to!! Thank you Dr Kulplerstein for giving me my life back.
