Back and leg pain and wholistic approach
I have a child in early 20's that had back surgery for bulging disc at 19. Has had great pain in lower back (L5) and down leg to foot. Has had 2 seperate PM injections that has not worked, has been on vicadine, ockycotin, darvon, cymbalta, neurotin, lyrika, and some others. Original neurosurgeon is not around anymore and new orthopedic doc insist on acupuncture, biofeedback, rehab and off meds before considering any further surgeries which would likely be very invasive surgery and probably cause more surgeries in the future. Does anyone have success story about using acupuncture, biofeedback and rehab to subside nerve pain in lower back to the degree to not have to be on a constant stream on meds.
