Pope Francis has Sciatica and Low Back Pain

Although Pope Francis is 77, he has been the most vigorous pope in years, his energy proving the key to his popularity. His frank admission may lead commentators to speculate as to whether he has any undisclosed health problems.

At the time of his elevation to the papacy, reports emerged that Pope Francis had a lung removed when he was a teenager in Argentina after suffering an infection.

Dr William Schaffner, chairman of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Centre in Nashville, Tennessee, said at the time: “Obviously, this was a success because here he is at age 76. So whatever they did got him over that precarious period.” But the pope only admitted that he had “some nerve problems”, which required treatment.

“Must treat them well, these nerves, give them mate (an Argentine stimulant tea) every day. “One of these neuroses, is that I’m too much of a homebody,” he added, recalling that the last time he’d taken a holiday outside of his native Argentina was ‘with the Jesuit community in 1975’.

Pope Francis’s reference to ‘nerve problems’ may have been about his sciatica, which has been given as the reason he doesn’t bow before the Tabernacle when giving church services.

In his first month as pope, he hurt his sciatic nerve after using an uncomfortable chair. Sciatica is the name given to any sort of pain that is caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve.

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body and it runs from the back of the pelvis, through the buttocks, and all the way down both legs, ending at the feet.

Integrity Life Sciences delivers a multitude of orthotic treatment options to address one of the most costly systemic ailments in the world, chronic low back and neck pain. Our advanced solution begins with the Integrity Spinal Care System (ISCS). Our ISCS non-surgical spinal decompression therapy systems are engineered to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative conditions of the spine. Specifically, conditions that may be treated include: neck pain and back pain associated with herniated discs, protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica. It achieves these effects through decompression of intervertebral discs, that is, unloading due to distraction and positioning. 
Integrity also offers the very effective Integrity Gel Support Brace. Our advanced lumbar support brace is a fitting compliment to non-surgical spinal decompression therapy and was designed as an adjunct therapy for those suffering from back pain due to disc related conditions. The Integrity Gel Support Brace may be used with or without Integrity’s non-surgical spinal decompression systems and is an excellent treatment option for the patient to use at home.
