My wife had micro-disc surgery on her L5/S1 over ten years ago, for a herniated disc. It greatly reduced the back pain and the sciatic pain down her legs, but it didn't remove the pain, down her legs, completely.

For a long time, she had trouble sitting for too long because she got a "numb" pain down both of her legs.

When lying in bed, she constantly had to move from her right side, to her back, to her left side. She either got "numb" pain, or radiating pain down her legs.

We recently tested her feet and found that, when sitting, with her feet on the floor, she had the ability to raise her toes strongly on her left foot, but her right foot had almost no strength at all.

Since then, she had an Acupuncture treatment that focused on treating the muscle movements in her right leg and foot. After the treatment, the pain got worse for about three days, but the motor movements in her right foot improved. After three days, the pain subsided. She started an exercise program, of walking 30 minutes per day, to build up the badly atrophied muscles of her right foot and ankle.

She is now walking one hour per day, and she can sit for hours without discomfort, and she is much more confortable lying in bed.

It only took one Acupuncture treatment to bring back the motor movements, and electronic pads were used instead of needles. She said that the treatment was like a soothing massage.

Just wanted to post our experiences.

Best of luck, and health!
Beerziods,
