  • You've missed out on family vacation or activities you love because you're afraid of aggravating your sciatica.

  • How to determine the cause of your lower back pain without an expensive MRI (Did you know that up to 85% of people over the age of 50 who have no symptoms of back pain or sciatica will show up with a bulging disc on an MRI? That’s right…they have no symptoms and yet the MRI shows a bulging disc.) 
  • How to match the right treatment to the exact cause of your symptoms (this is where most patients get poor results… when the correct treatment is not matched to the correct cause). 
  • Why this one popular supposedly “quick fix” treatment is doing you more harm than good…in the process lowering your chances for permanent relief from your symptoms.

Here's what some former attendees and patients have to say...

“I hurt my back 2 years again and I thought I just pulled a muscle, it never got any better and I started to get progressively weaker in my lower back. I finally went to a chiropractor. It didn’t help the weakness, so I went to another one and it didn’t help either. I finally went to a spine specialist and after an MRI it showed I had to pinched nerves. After I had surgery, the pain was gone, but I still had the weakness in my lower back. My surgeon sent me to physical therapy. After twelve sessions, there was no difference in the strength of my lower back. I had a hard time walking after a short distance my back just wanted to give out. I also had a hard time getting up from a sitting position and I could stand for only a short period of time.  

After attending a seminar at Orthopedic and Balance in Crown Point, I was convinced that if anybody could help me it would be them. Arlan Alburo started working on my back with hands on physical therapy followed by exercises. After six sessions, I was so happy I could tell a real difference. I can walk further, I can get up from a sitting position much easier and I can stand up for longer periods without the weakness. I am going to continue to go to the sessions because I feel with the help of Arlan and his physical therapy staff my back will eventually return to its normal strength. 

Arlan is a great hands on therapist and his physical therapy staff is great to work with as well. I highly recommend Orthopedic and Balance because it helped me after surgery and traditional physical therapy failed.” - Donald Markle 

“When I came to seminars about sciatica, I was skeptical. I started the series and it was progressively getting better. I helped a couple move which brought me back to the beginning with pain. I took a whole day to relax and continue my sessions. I can now say that I am totally happy with my progress. My number 9-10 pain is now at a 1! What a great program!” -Patricia Mistak 

Don’t have to take pain meds like I used to! 

Amazing what OBTS has done for my low back! I am now able to do things around the house I have not done in years: mop the floor, bend and pick up stuff off the floor, home repairs! I can also now sleep through the night, walk farther without pain, sit for as long as I want, go to church, and go out to eat. Most of all, I do not have to take pain medications like I used to! Thanks OBTS. I really appreciate what you all have done for me!” Elmer Pollard, Porter IN
