So sorry to hear about your pain! I herniated a disc in my lower lumbar when I was much younger.
The pain meds didn't help, I can't take muscle relaxers (give me serious stomach issues) and when
my back gave completely out I went to an accupuncturist. I figured it couldn't hurt more than
I was already hurting. I couldn't even stand up or sit up normal. After just one treatment by
a qualified accupuncturist, I could sit up on my own. The pain was much alleviated, but I did
still have pain. I went 3 more times which helped immensely with the pain. I couldn't afford to
go anymore at that time, unfortunately. It was before accupuncture was accepted on insurance
policies. I highly recommend accupuncture to anyone in acute chronic pain!
