I had microdiscectomy surgery on my low back to help repair damage to my lumbar spine. Although the surgery did help, I still have low back pain that occasionally goes down my right leg. I am not a surgical candidate right now nor do I want to have another one so I decided to try acupuncture to help reduce some of my pain symptoms. It has made a positive improvement for me. The acupuncture seems to reduce the frequency and severity of my low back and leg pain. While the pain is not 100% gone, I am now able to do my regular activities and live my life with much less pain. I only occasionally get pain down my leg and when I do it is much less than before. I have made acupuncture treatment a part of my life to help keep me stay off the surgery table. I am happy with the results and have recommended my wife to get acupuncture too.
