Re: What essential oil will help a herniated disk?
Unfortunately as the others have posted to you already, there is no magic pain reliever for this type of injury. There are topical analgesics out there that can sometimes bring some temporary relief, but truly doesn't do too much.
There are prescribed topicals that may help a bit more, such as lidocaine patches, but you will need to see your doctor for that. And again, these are just for some minor pain relief. It will not heal it.
Accupuncture may well be of some benefit to him and relief some of his pain. I know several that are big on this procedure and rave for the help it can provide. Again, it won't cure him, but it might offer him some level of relief.
