Treatment Ratings

    Cured
    Acupuncture
    Almost Cured
    Chiropractor, TENS/Electrical Stimulation
    Improved
    Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, Stretching, Strengthening Exercises

Herniated disc, bulged disc, and stenosis. Was in a lot of pain and was signed up to get a cortisone injection but after 20 acupuncture treatments pain completely went away so I cancelled the injection.

I also find that the anti inflammatory supplement curcumin also helps.

If I get a re occuring back pain rest and tens unit stimulation will usually resolove the pain, if not, then I will go to chiropractor.
