 Home Visit Report & Overview

We are used to relate to people with acute pain but this case was different since the patient was an 80 yo male – had difficulties in walking and sitting and in some discomfort.
He presented with symptoms similar to sciatica, his pain started from the left gluteus which travelled posteriorly down his left leg until the anterior (dorsal) part of his left leg, ending at his left toe.
There were no associated traumas, the only factor which could play an important role was that the patient have been playing golf for the last 20 years. He could not move easily from his sitting position as the pain was limiting him somewhat. He was on anti inflammatory drugs which helped to ease his pain a little.
Prior to meeting us, he had already called his doctor who recommended him acupuncture and physiotherapy. The osteopathic treatment was instead recommended by his step daughter who had previously tried it.
We met his wife, a really kind woman who actively took part during the case history explaining his difficulties and giving her support.
Geoff was able to take a full and complete medical case history in order to analyse the pain and understand the cause. The patient looked happy in sharing his medical history and was helpful in giving us all the necessary details.
The evaluation and assessment was a team effort since we were able to evaluate and discuss together the findings and plan an appropriate course of treatment for the patient. The findings suggested that it could be a condition called piriformis syndrome; where is there muscle contracture or spasm of the piriformis muscle leading to irritation of the sciatic nerve, causing inflammation and resulting in pain and parasthesia along the nerve root distribution.
I started in doing the treatment adapting to the situation: the patient laid on a bed and he was laying on his right side because it was the only position which relieved the pain and gave him comfort. I treated him sitting behind him. This is another factor which needs to be taken into consideration in doing home visits since its sometimes difficult to perform adequate techniques in compromised positions.Geoff continued with other techniques, more focused on the left leg, and we both explained to the patient what we were doing, our approach and reasoning, and how this was related to his pain.
Eventually, he was advised to put a cold pack on the painful area with the aim of reducing the inflammation in the piriformis muscle.

It was certainly an interesting learning experience and also working in tandem with a fellow coworker has helped a lot in my treatment approach and patient management strategies.
