WITH ACUPUNCTURE AND HERBS, PATIENT BECAME PAIN FREE | DR. KEVIN HUANG SPECIALIZES IN DIFFICULT DISEASES AND DEGENERATIVE CONDITIONS
Patient CJ came into Agape Natural Health seeking for treatment to relieve his back pain and sciatic nerve pain due to two bulging discs, a condition in which the inner portion of the intervertebral disc that provides shock-absorbing cushion begins to protrude from the outer wall of the disc, in his lumbar region. CJ was experiencing lower back pains that radiated down to the back of his left leg. Unknown to his condition, he went to his primary care orthopedic doctor to get his back checked out. After performing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), his orthopedic physician confirmed that CJ has two bulging discs in his lumbar region. CJ developed his condition as a contractor that does continuous heavy lifting of objects that puts strains to his body. Over time and with age, the intervertebral discs begins to wear and tear and starts to dehydrate, and the cartilage stiffens that causes the disc to bulge and put pressure on the surrounding nerve root. His orthopedic physician recommended taking nonprescription pain medication to alleviate the pain and rest to reduce the amount of stress that is put on the spinal cord to allow the bulging disc to decrease and to prevent further compression to the spinal nerve. A bulging disc takes about six weeks to recover with limited posture movements; however, in some cases it can take longer. In his early sixties and a person with diabetes with a high level of glucose and poor blood circulation, CJ was prone to slower healing. Therefore, it would take longer to recover from bulging discs compared to a non-diabetic individual.
After a week of suffering from back and leg pains, CJ was referred to Agape Natural Health by a friend who was troubled about his health. On June 20, 2017, CJ came in for a consultation to discuss his health concerns to Dr. Huang - how his bulging discs has affected his job performance, unable to complete tasks such as moving and lifting, his personal life of not being able to sleep at night, how walking has become challenging that prevented him from getting his daily exercise. The back pain and sciatic nerve were intolerable that over the counter pain medications weren’t helping him get any better. Dr. Huang recommends that he does a combination of acupuncture treatment and natural herbal medicine to restore his balance and promote healing. CJ decided to proceed with the acupuncture treatments and natural herbs right away. CJ followed Dr. Huang’s recommendation, and within the first week of treatment, his back pain was 25-30% better from the initial day he came into Agape Natural Health. As CJ continued his treatment program, his back pain lessened and was 50-60% better just after four acupuncture treatments. CJ was persistent on coming in three times a week for his acupuncture treatments and taking his natural herbal medicine daily because he knew that it was beneficial for his body.
By maintaining his health, within two weeks his pain was 70% better and he was able to walk much better. Each time that CJ came in for his treatment, his recovery process kept strengthening his body by restoring his balance. By week four, CJ’s pain was 80% better and he no longer needed to take any over the counter pain reliever for his back. On August 15, 2017, CJ pain was pain-free. He no longer had any pain at his lower back region or experiences any sciatic nerve shooting down the back of his left leg. With acupuncture and natural herbal medicine, CJ was able to heal faster than expected and is now living a healthier lifestyle that improved his function to perform his daily task at home and work more efficiently
