He has an aversion to any agreed orders, and he is a successful author of the book, “Why Hormones Are Making You Fat” He also busies himself with spreading his word and his beliefs regarding modern medicine. He believes that we must look at our health our mental wellbeing, diet, exercise patterns and even take a healthy spiritual route to encourage wellness. We must make the hours that we spend relaxing and beneficial to our bodies. A theme covered in his June board meeting.

This is called the pastoral medical route. He assists at educational workshops to try and improve people’s knowledge and assure them that even if they have been told that they will not improve, there are things they can do to improve their health. He reinforces the importance of pastoral care and how it can make you well. He sits on a medical board to promote his beliefs.

One of the most debilitating and painful back related medical illnesses is sciatica. It effects the lower spine and is due to nerve damage or pressure on the nerves. As well as a severe pain it can also cause numbness to the patient. Dr Jawhari is a firm believer in dealing with the problem using non-invasive methods and as an extremely experienced and famous Chiropractor who founded the Dallas Spine and Disc Center in Texas, he has seen his methods ease the pain and numbness in his clients and, in some cases, cured their pain altogether.

Sciatica is caused by compression or irritation of one of the five spinal nerve roots or by irritation of the left and or right sciatic never. However, although sciatica has one root cause it can cause several issues. Sufferers may feel a burning sensation, a numbness a tingling that starts in the lower back and continues down towards the thigh and leg. Therefore, it can affect walking. The main cause of this compression or irritation is a herniated disk or a narrowing of the spine all of which will put pressure on the nerves, which the body isn’t expecting.

When someone is believed to have sciatica, the full diagnosis can involve X-Rays, CT scans, MRI scans and electromyograms. These will help build up a picture and pinpoint where even the smallest change to the body has occurred. Once you know the root cause of the problem and the area that you are working with you can develop a plan to deal with it. Some people will suffer for years and rely on painkillers, even though the pain may subside it is very likely that at some point the pain will return. A much better treatment would be to consult a chiropractor such as Dr. Karl Jawhari who will work on the pain in the pelvis and lower back. He will encourage small bits of physical activity. Finding and managing a way to reduce your stress levels will be the order of the day. The pain of sciatica is almost always found in patients who are suffering high amounts of stress or anxiety.
