Treatment for torn ligaments around degenerating disk?

Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
I have torn ligaments around a degenerating disk in my spine. The disk itself isn’t causing any problems, but the torn ligaments are causing pain and weakening my back. What treatment should I seek?

A: I recommend acupuncture and electrostim acupuncture for eight to twelve treatments on a once per week schedule. This treatment should accompany an herbal formulation and dietary regiment. To locate a licensed acupuncturist in your area visit:
