History:”Took in an emergency acute sciatica patient tonight. She wrote an email with the subject line: “Consider this begging,” asking for me to make room for her in the schedule. She is just here, in Phoenix, on a biz trip and, boarding her plane 2 days ago, she tweaked her back and had been in level 7-8 pain since then. She limped into the clinic tonight. She expressed that she was due to fly back to Chicago tomorrow morning and was scared to have to sit on a plane with that level of pain (sitting exacerbates the pain for her).
She just left the clinic with level 1-2 pain, not only walking without a limp.
