My name is Will Harlow and I am a sciatica-specialist physiotherapist and author from the UK who helps people suffering from sciatica to regain their independence, get off painkillers and get back to doing the things that they love.
I have years of experience in helping many hundreds of people with sciatica to avoid surgery and get their life back, through safe and natural treatment methods.
My motivation was my mother. She suffered from severe sciatica during my childhood and I grew up terrified of seeing her suffering from another flare up - unable to move, completely debilitated and in excruciating pain.
When I grew up, I became a physiotherapist and started work in an NHS outpatient clinic, where I came across many people suffering from sciatica each day. I was reminded how debilitating this condition can be. I knew I wanted to help, but felt frustrated at the restraints placed on us working in the national health service. I helped everyone I could with their sciatica within my NHS role, learning along the way what works, and what doesn't, for this group of people.
I saw the frustration, crippling pain and affliction on the families of sciatica sufferers everywhere I went. If you are anything like my patients, you hate taking pain killers and know that surgery should be the very last resort - if this sounds like you, Overcome Sciatica may well be exactly what you need as you are my inspiration for taking the time to create it!
Eventually, in 2017 I quit my NHS job and decided to dedicate my time to helping those with sciatica to return to a normal life. I did this by offering face-to-face and online coaching to people affected by sciatica and by documenting the complete system for a natural recovery from sciatica. I called it The 7 Steps to Overcome Sciatica - and it was released in the summer of 2018.
I also run a Facebook page with tonnes of free information for people with back pain and sciatica, which includes loads of expert tips to help tackle sciatica by taking a “whole body” holistic approach.
I started Overcome Sciatica so that I could share each of my articles with the online community, with the hope of helping people who are afflicted by this cruel condition, no matter what is causing it.
