Male Patient in Her 80's
At the end of 2021, after the patient started feeling strong pain and numbness in his right leg, he visited a local hospital and was diagnosed with disc herniation.
He tried rehabilitation and medication treatment for a few months without any obvious effect. The doctor recommended surgical treatment, but knowing about the operation related risks the patient refused and contacted our clinic hoping that our treatment can bring him some relief.
