BEST SELLING AUTHOR
Best Selling Author, Dr Jennifer Stebbing DO
A physician trained in Orthopedic Regenerative Medicine, Dr Jennifer Stebbing DO wrote “I Can Sit Again: Non-Surgical Treatment for Tailbone Pain” as a guide to help patients who have injured themselves navigate thru the complex medical system to find non-surgical solutions to their pain. She is a puzzle master, intuitive listener, and beacon of hope for those who have done “everything” and still aren’t fully functional. She heralds from Camas in southern WA, where she has a physical practice and telemedicine practice.
Dr. Stebbing's career started as a Family Practioner. She has always embraced her osteopathic roots. She pursued a Sports Medicine Fellowship after eight years of family practice, which provided her with a deep foundation in medicine. During this time, she recognized the inadequacies of treating pain in the insurance based medical model, which offers band aids and treatment options that are not only not curative but may in fact cause more harm. Her exposure to prolotherapy in her Sports Medicine fellowship opened her eyes to a new paradigm for treating pain. She diligently continues to acquire knowledge and skill, providing treatment that is research based. In her book, I Can Sit Again, she reiterates the importance of a comprehensive evaluation, correct diagnosis and complete treatment. She offers treatment options and the discusses the concepts behind the treatment options, clarifying the process of making decisions to pursue treatment.

Dr. Stebbing is a “body whisperer “ She seems to intuitively know which areas of your body are hurting and/or in need of treatment. One of the best results of her treatment is that pain that you had in other body parts are relieved. For example, if your knee is being treated you may notice that your back is also feeling better. She takes the time to listen to you and she is not condescending like some specialists are. She takes your pain seriously and does not try to write you off by suggesting the problem is all in your head.
Must Have for Low Back Pain Sufferers.
A highly practical approach to the often confusing nuance of lower back pain. Dr. Stebbing guides you through understanding the source of your most debilitating pain areas and then applies the regenerative solutions that improve quality of life. Good information leading to successful treatment. Using examples, her personal experience and presenting cases studies of her patients, Dr. Stebbing allows the reader to relate to her approach and successful treatment. She “walks the reader” through the deeply-personal process of interviewing, treatment and healing, and certainly gives hope to patients with tailbone pain, as well as joint pain. While using medical terms for anatomy, medications and procedures, Dr. Stebbing is careful to explain them in terms the lay reader can understand. She is also eager to incorporate other practitioners, such as chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths, physical therapists and nutritionists, as well as lifestyle changes in a treatment program. No matter what your problem is, Dr. Stebbing wants to make sure you are “an informed consumer” and “ a proactive, informed decision maker”.
Reflections on “I Can Sit Again”
With a different title I would give this book 4+ stars. A better name would be some short version of “A Master Therapist Summarizes Her Thoughts About The Use of Alternative Modalities for the Common Joint Pains and Describes Numerous Examples from Her Own Practice”. The book does that very well. Those who imagine from its title that the book will let them heal their own tailbone pain will be disappointed.
Jennifer Stebbing is an intelligent, educated, caring, effective physician. She has helped me with a number of different joint issues over the past five years. I enormously appreciate her respect for the innate capacity of the human body to deal with its own ills. This text is a very useful introduction to the three main methods she employs to facilitate that process- prolotherapy injections, platelet rich plasma and stem cell therapy.
Through her narrative she illustrates the concerns and principles of an extremely competent physician.
When applied appropriately, her alternative approaches to pain can be extremely effective. However many physicians lack the knowledge and ethics to use them appropriately. Then they can be dangerous. Since most readers will not have the privilege of working with Jennifer Stebbing, most of those inspired by her narrative will need to find another physician offering alternative methods. I wish the book gave guidance on how to identify the many shams who are promoting these methods as cure-alls.
By their nature, her three approaches do not lend themselves to self help. And her book does not cover the exercise and diet habits that are the complements to most programs of pain management. However the many case examples she describes are inspiring and will help readers imagine a life that attains an end to chronic pain without resort to extreme measures such as surgery.
