New Lumbar Herniated Disc E-Book from the Writers of Spine-health.com

Dear Spine-health Forum Members and Visitors,

We have just published a new E-book on Amazon to help you better understand Lumbar Herniated Discs and evaluate your options for finding pain relief - available at

As you have come to expect from us, this book is written in a clear and straightforward manner, providing you with medically accurate and unbiased information so you can make the best decisions given your individual situation.

The book is 46 pages - packed with in-depth information for any patient suffering from a lumbar herniated disc.

We believe that your best approach to finding pain relief is to have accurate, non-commercial information about your treatment and care options. Unlike many resources, this book does not promote one type of treatment or breakthrough approach: instead, we recognize that pain relief is most often a process of trial and error, and what works best for one person may not be the best option for another.

For many with herniated disc pain, the biggest decision is whether or not to have surgery. This is a very personal decision – only you know how much pain and disability you're experiencing, and only you know your treatment preferences and concerns. This book clearly outlines a broad range of nonsurgical treatment options as well as what to expect with surgery.

Please let us know below if you would like books published on additional topics, and if so, which topics!

Hope this info is helpful,

John Jung
Senior Manager, Account Services

  • I am in constant pain from my lower leg and buttocks (right leg). I had done all the possible treatments to avoid surgery. My doctor says that I have a disc herniation but my chiropractor said that the pain comes from an entrapment of the disc in my piriformis muscle. I was not worried about that when I was decided to avoid surgery but after a year I cannot live that way in constant pain. I tried everything and nothing worked. My question is how can I know what is the cause of my pain, the surgeon does not listen to my question they believe only on the MRI. What kind of doctor could tell me what is the source of my pain. I also have arthritis in my spine. That also could be a reason for pain but I am absolutely alone with my doubts. All the professionals that offered alternative treatments are discouraged with me and do not want see me anymore. Please if you are reading this and have the answer to my question could you be so nice to write to me. Thanks

    Hey I suffer from severe Lumbar Spinal Canal Stenosis and my doctors don't want to believe I am in so much pain
  • Excellent post. I have a book on back pain, but my pain management doctor seems to help me out a lot. I have one disc on the lower left side of my back that hurts like heck....but it comes and goes. I could have pain there for a week, and then it's gone for a few months...and so on. I don't know what triggers it.
    I have a big problem reading ever since I developed seizure disorder from all the injuries I have. My Nero Doc say it IS the seizure disorder. Can this book be bought on a CD, so I could listen to it? I just can't focus on reading anymore. I lose my concentration after a paragraph of two.

    Thanks for the info,
