Successful Healing of Low Back Pain Including Numbness and Sciatica
A male patient, age 45, came in for treatment in 2006. He suffered from severe low back pain (9 out of 10) with numbness and sciatica in his left leg.

Dr. Perkins applied a combined treatment program composed of acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies (including herbal plaster) for a total length of six weeks (15 sessions with one hour per treatment).

Upon completion of the treatment cycle the patient was pain-free. The numbness had been removed. The results have been sustained ever since. Only one preventive maintenance treatment was applied four months later.

Successful Treatment Stenosis in Low Back
A female patient, age 80, came for treatment in 2006. She suffered from severe and constant pain (8 out of 10) due to stenosis in her low back (moderate level) which caused pinching of the spinal cord. The medical doctor had suggested surgery.

Dr. Perkins applied a combined treatment program composed of acupuncture and Chinese herbs for a total of 18 weeks (3 sessions per week for first 6 weeks, 2 sessions a week for second 6 weeks, 1 session per week for last six weeks). Upon completing the main program preventive maintenance started (once every other week).

The results have been very positive. The patient had become pain-free upon completion of the treatment program. The results have been sustained ever since. She leads a much better life style and works out every day.
