  • I had that done and it worked great for me. I'd had a bulging disc L5-S1. Most days I could tough out the pain but sometimes I hurt so bad I just dread getting out of bed. I'm an ER doc doing 12 hour shifts so often have a string of days off. I did the procedure during about a 5 day stretch I had off anyway. Yes, they put you to sleep for the procedure. I was back to work about four days later but as far as I'm concerned I felt able to work the same day. I made big strong paramedics so heavy lifting for a few weeks as the doctor advised. The pain relief was immediate but not immediately complete. Within a few months for me at least it was complete pain relief. I honor God and the doctors who did this procedure. For me it was a cure.
  • i had accurascope on L3-L4,L4-L5, L5-S1 over 2 yrs ago & it gave me my life back! I was a disabled critical care nurse, off work for 11 months, in intense pain 24/7. I did it all---epidurals,chiropractors,massage,PT, lumbar decompression, medication, acupuncture.....you get my drift. Then i found NAS & the accurascope. Three hrs after i was having lunch at Chili's. The next day I flew for 2 hrs,,drove 100 miles home from airport without pain. I returned to work in 2 wks. I thank God every night for NAS, it was my miracle !!!!!!!!
  • I've had a rough road. 11 years ago was diagnosed with DDD. I am a 66 year old female who used to walk 25 miles a week and attend gym classes 3-4 times a week. After interviewing about a dozen neurosurgeons and orthosurgeons decided on disc replacement for L4/L5. Horrendous mistake!!!! Also have problems with L3/L4, L5/S1, sciatica and because of the metal disk at L4/L5, MRI is useless. Artificial disk froze in one position after about 2 years. Since then have done it all--mininmally invasive laser surgieries, hydrocision, PT, acupuncture, chiropracter, at least 50 epidural shots and tons of meds including fentanyl, morphine, methadone, oxy and hydro to no avail. Still on massive meds with all their side effects. Pain is constant. Now considering accurascope and looking for advice--positive and negative. Thanks in advance.
