Successful Treatment of Slit Disc in Lower Back (L3-L5)
A male patient, age 32, came for treatment in 2010. He had been diagnosed with a slit disc (from car accident). The patient suffered from severe pain (7-8 out of 10). The MD had identified the condition based on an x-ray and MRI. As a result, the patient had been referred to physiotherapy. After more than two months (2-3 sessions per week) it was concluded that the treatment did not create lasting benefits. Therefore, the patient approached Dr. Wilson for help.

A combined treatment program composed of acupuncture (including electric stimulation), massage (tuina), herbal oils (external), moxa bustion, cupping therapy, and guafha therapy was applied once a week for a total length of 4 weeks and 3 more times afterwards (every other week).

The results were promising. The pain level had been basically eliminated. The patient could exercise again (very muscular type person). No maintenance was necessary. He was very happy with the outcome.
