Twenty years ago at age 28, a L4-5 large central disc herniation and L5-S1 disc protrusion lead to severe pain Managed non surgically. The Only rx helpful was ice, electroacupuncture, shiatsu and acupressure massage. After two years of agony and 12 acupuncture treatments my back pain and sciatica was controlled. Intermittent backaches are self treated with ice, capsacin cream or pain patches - salonpas-HOT, and shiatsu massages. I hope
others with back pain with similar pathology will find relief.
