Back Pain and Sciatica Treatment by Dr. Ronald Mullen
Neck, back pain, lower back and sciatic pain can be caused by common disc problems: disc herniation, bulging disc, degenerative disc disease (DDD), bone spur and stenosis. The therapy in my clinic is to focus on restoring the damaged disc structure and healing the disc injuries. By healing the disc injuries, the associated pain and sciatica will be eliminated. Patients usually notice improvement in 2 to 3 weeks and can expect a complete recovery with full functionality and total pain elimination with total of 1 to 6 months of treatment. As part of the healing process, patients may feel pain increases at moderate to severe intensity during the 2 to 3 weeks due to the mix of healing and increased nerve sensations, especially for trauma related cases.
1) Disc Herniation and Failed Back Surgery Syndrome - 3 Month Program
I would recommend a continuous 3 month treatment with the herbal supplements which will help repair the damaged disc structure by improving the blood and lymphatic circulations as well as the microcirculation. Patients should notice about 50% pain reduction after the 1st month. After the 2nd month, patients may experience 75% symptom elimination. With the 3rd month treatment, patient can achieve sustained pain relief with normal function resumed.
2) Bulging Disc - 1 to 3 Month Program
I would recommend a 1 month treatment with the herbal supplement for patients with mild or moderate condition. Patient may experience total symptom elimination afterward. For severe conditions (where the disc is on the verge of rupture), the same 3 month treatment as disc herniation is required.
3) Stenosis and Bone Spurs – 3 to 6 Month Program
I would recommend 3 to 6 months of treatment with the herbal supplement which will help resolve the cervical and lumber stenosis and the bone spurs by improving the blood and lymphatic circulations as well as the microcirculation. Patients usually notice improvement in one month of treatments. At the end of 3rd month, 50% to 100% pain reduction can be achieved. A continued 3 to 6 month treatment with the herbal treatment might be necessary to achieve pain free.
4) Traumatic Disc Injury
Patient may experience moderate to severe pain increase, dizziness (cervical disc injury), nausea and/or vomiting (thoracic disc injury), skin bruises, or black stool during the initial treatment due to nerve restoration and clearance of the dead tissue or blood as a result of healing.
Case Study on Back Pain Treatment

I am a 51 year old Acupuncture Physician with a busy practice in Florida. In the 1980s I sustained a back injury which resulted in sever, unrelenting pain. The pain radiated through my lower back and down the right leg.
For years I struggled with this excruciating pain, unable to work, indeed barely able to function. MRI scans revealed three herniated lumbar discs, for which I received multiple epidurals. During my this time I was also treated with many therapies, including physical therapy, traction, a body cast, all without the slightest relief. Back surgery was ruled out as an option for my type of injury, and I struggled daily without much hope of relief.
Through a friend’s referral, I found an Acupuncture Physician and began treatment. And after two months, I was able to function again. (Which lead me to go back to school to study Oriental Medicine), I also added a stretching and strengthening program and was able to get back to a relatively normal life.
My back though is much better, still caused problems periodically. I had developed some arthritis in the area of the old injury. I decided to try the herbal supplement, having seen great improvement in my patients who were using this product.
Even as a practitioner, I could not believe the difference I felt after using the herbal treatment for six weeks. My back felt stronger and my range of motion and flexibility improved enormously. I continued to take the herbal formula for three months and have felt complete relief of my symptoms. The herbal treatments have helped my patients and me and I find exceptional relief.
