This is a quick review of the program Sciatica SOS by Glen Johnson. If you want the condensed version: it doesn’t live up to the sales hype.
What Is Sciatica SOS?
Well it’s advertised as a unique program to cure your sciatica in “7 days or less” using some Nepalese secrets or something.
But here’s what it actually is: A bunch of miscellaneous information about sciatica thrown together in a short ebook.
Maybe the information is accurate but it doesn’t really give you a concrete plan for dealing with sciatica, which might come as a surprise if you read the sales letter.
According to the website it’s a program based on some secret “Glen” learned from an “elderly Nepalese woman named Xie”. And that it will cure your sciatica in 7 days or less… “guaranteed!”
You get the impression that you’ll be receiving information other than what you can learn for free on the internet. You think you’re going to learn some sort of secret from afar that nobody here knows about.
But as I said before, there was nothing new under the sun here.
I’m not necessarily saying the information is inaccurate. A lot of it could very well be helpful for those of you with low back pain and sciatica. I just want to alert anybody who is thinking of buying it that you might want to adjust your expectations.
What’s Actually In Sciatica SOS?
An 86 page ebook downloadable as a PDF.
There are also 5 bonus ebooks. What are these ebooks like? Well one of them, “10 Ways To Fight Off Cancer” comes with brilliant insights like eat more fiber and don’t smoke cigarettes. That should give you an idea of the quality.
The main Sciatica SOS ebook has a few okay parts in between a bunch of unoriginal content.
It begins by going over what sciatica is and what causes it. This was pretty straightforward stuff that I thought was probably unnecessary.
Then it talks about solutions. It tells you about some foods that are supposed to help with sciatic pain and describes different exercises that also help ease sciatica. They also distinguish different exercises for sciatica due to different causes.
The exercises are the strongest part of the program. I say that because it’s the most actionable part, but I still don’t think it justifies the cost of the course. You can type “exercises for sciatica” into Google and probably get similar information.
The next two parts of the book talk about proper diet and home care techniques. The home care techniques are things like self massage, trigger point therapy, and a description of how to “align” your posture. The self massage and trigger point therapy sections were okay but video would have been helpful.
It ends with some miscellaneous advice about lifestyle adjustments to avoid sciatic pain. Probably nothing you haven’t already heard before.
What I Liked About Sciatica SOS
- It does a good job describing some exercises to help with different types of sciatica
- The self massage techniques were interesting
What I Didn’t Like About Sciatica SOS
- I think I covered that.
I don’t recommend buying Sciatica SOS. It’s not a “scam” or anything like that- you can easily get your money back for 60 days and the 3rd party vendor is reputable. But in my opinion it fails to deliver on it’s hype.
You can’t go marketing a product as a “7 day cure guaranteed” and then put together a bunch of generic advice in an ebook and throw in some worthless bonuses.
If you’re looking for a program to help you get rid of back pain quickly I recommend this one. It has clear video instructions, no “fluff”, and it actually works.
