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.
