Successful Treatment of Debilitating Back Pain
A male patient of 45 years had been suffering from lower back pain as a result of being a construction worker. The patient had come in with 8 to 10 level debilitating back pain and had been out of work as a result. Medical Doctors had taken MRIs and diagnosed the patient with Degenerative Disc Disorder in the 4th and 5th lumbar nerves. He had been given narcotics to ease the pain. However, the narcotics were not helping him with the pain and addiction to the narcotics was becoming an issue as well. As a result of coming off of the narcotics, the patient began to experience an increase in pain. The patient had tried cortisone injections and remedial branch blockage with little to no effect.

Lisa began treating the patient with a series of herbal remedies and acupuncture sessions. After the first round of treatment, the patient had noticed a 70% reduction in pain. By the second round of treatment, the pain had reduced to a 1-2 pain level. The treatment had lasted a total of 2 months consisting of 1-2 weekly sessions.

After treatment, the patient was able to return to work as a full time construction worker. He still comes in regularly for monthly acupuncture treatments.
