From: Dr. Ron Daulton, Jr.
Dear Back Pain Sufferer,
Did you know that most of the treatments your doctor recommends for a spinal disc condition will never provide lasting relief?
If you look at the current research about the typical treatments that are recommended by most physicians, here's what you'll find:
Medications tend to be the first choice of treatment for most doctors.
Many times, you will be prescribed a combination of pain killers, muscle relaxers and anti–inflammatory medications. Here's the good news about the medications – usually they provide relief in the beginning but the problem is once you stop taking them, the pain will return, and that happens for a reason, which we'll talk about in a little bit.
One of the major concerns with these medications is the side effects. Many people are just not able to function during their normal daily activities while on these because some of them can be very potent. In addition to that, the medications prescribed for a spinal disc condition are known to cause life– threatening side effects, such as kidney or liver failure, bleeding ulcers, and even strokes.
Here are just a few examples of some of the side effects of these medications:
- Acetaminophen (Tylenol): Liver Damage (according to the FDA, this medication is the leading cause of drug-induced acute liver failure in the United States).
- Cymbalta: Bleeding ulcers, liver damage, high blood pressure, and liver cancer.
- Diclofenac (Voltaren, Cambia): Bleeding ulcers, coughing up or vomiting blood, weight gain, heart disease, and skin problems.
- Ibuprofen (Advil): Bleeding ulcers of the stomach or intestinal tract, kidney failure, heart disease, and stroke.
- Lyrica (Pregabalin): Suicidal thoughts, heart failure, cancer (hemangiosarcoma), trouble sleeping, vision problems, and muscle pain (which is somewhat ironic because, although this medication is commonly prescribed for seizures, it is also commonly prescribed for fibromyalgia and chronic nerve pain).
- Meloxicam (Mobic): Heart attack, stroke, bleeding ulcers, liver failure, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and kidney failure.
- Naproxen (Aleve and Naprosyn): Heart attack, stroke, and bleeding ulcers.
- Tramadol (Ultram): Seizures, addiction, internal bleeding, depression, and suicidal thoughts.
And that's just a few of the medications commonly recommended for a spinal disc condition.
The next common treatment we'll talk about is Injections, such as
steroids like cortisone, or epidurals.
According to a research study entitled, "Increases in lumbosacral injections in the Medicare population: 1994 to 2001", which was done by Friedly, Chan & Deyo in the journal Spine in July of 2007, these types of injections are effective as little as 18% of the time.
And even with such a low success rate, there was an increase in their usage by 271% between 1994 to 2001, which added up to an additional $175 million dollars in charges from this service alone! The outcome of the study was that this is not the best option for treating disc conditions, and it certainly isn't the most cost–effective!
Also, when injections do help a person, it can be very deceiving because, yes, the pain goes away but the problem is that the underlying disc condition didn’t actually heal, so you think that you're okay and you continue going about your life and doing all the things that got you into this problem to begin with and then once the injection wears off, all of a sudden the pain comes back and sometimes it's even worse and it's more difficult to treat at that point.
- The next common treatment is Physical Therapy
I'm a huge fan of Physical Therapy. However, I believe that Physical Therapy needs to be done at a certain time, and in combination with other treatments if you want to experience the most benefit. There's an appropriate time and a place for everything, and that's something we'll be discussing more in this article.
Surgery is the last resort and there's very good reasons for this.
First of all, the majority of studies show that the success rate of conservative care is better, or at least equivalent to surgery. The research studies I've listed here are just a few of the studies that have shown this.
- "Surgery versus conservative management of sciatica due to a lumbar herniated disc: a systematic review", European Spine Journal, 2011
- "Conservative management of lumbar disc herniation with associated radiculopathy: a systematic review", Spine, May 2010
- "Chiropractic treatment of cervical radiculopathy caused by a herniated cervical disc, Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics", February 1994
- "The outcomes of lumbar microdiscectomy in a young, active population: correlation by herniation type and level", Spine, January 2008
And because there can be complications with surgery, most doctors will try everything else first, because why would you take the risk of going through surgery if you can experience relief using more conservative methods?
In fact, one of the biggest concerns about surgery is the failure rate. According to the study "Related factors with the failed surgery of herniated lumbar disc," which was done by a research hospital in Spain, the failure rate of Spinal Disc Surgery is as high as 40%! That means that at least 1 in 3 people who have spinal disc surgery will not experience relief.
In addition to that, they found that the failure rate increases to over 50% when an individual has surgery more than once! So, if you're in that position where you've already had surgery and are considering another surgery, you need to think seriously about that! Especially if your first surgery failed.
Another concern with certain types of surgical procedures is that they can cause the disc to degenerate more quickly. That means that you develop arthritis in the disc more quickly.
A study in the Journal of Spinal Disorders and Technology entitled, " Accelerated degeneration after failed cervical and lumbar nucleoplasty" showed that 42% of the people who had this type of procedure showed more degeneration within the treated disc a year after the procedure than they would have if they never had the procedure at all.
For many people, finding out about your disc condition is a lot like what's happening to Kermit the frog in this cartoon.
Kermit is about to get some pretty bad news. He's about to find out that he has a hand inside of him somewhere that he never knew about before.
What I'm guessing is, your experience of finding out about your disc condition may be a little bit similar. You see most of the time, at least with the patients I have treated, you have some back pain or maybe you have some pain that travels into your legs or into your arms or that sort of thing, and that pain causes you to see a doctor about this.
Because you're not aware of what's going on, you just figure, well the doctor can probably just give you a pill and you'll feel better, right? Well sometimes the medication doesn't work, so the doctor has to order some tests.
So they send you for some x-rays, or for an MRI and that's when they discover that you have a disc problem, either a bulging disc or a herniated disc or whatever the case may be. Then the doctor tells you the bad news, which is that you have a permanent condition that will never heal and your back is never going to be right again, and you will have to live with this for the rest of your life.
In my personal opinion, I don't think that you need to believe that, and research has now shown that a bulging disc, herniated disc, and even a ruptured disc can heal without surgery.
- "Observation of CT three-dimensional reconstruction in the treatment of standard manipulation for lumbar intervertebral disc herniation," Zhongguo Gu Shang, October 2011
- "Regression of herniated nucleus pulposus: two patients with lumbar radiculopathy," Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, November 1989
In the first study listed here, which was done in China at the Wangjing Hospital of China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, they found that 79.2% of the patients who had herniated discs and were treated with conservative care actually showed that the disc was healing on a CT scan. What this means is that the herniation itself actually sucked back into the disc and the wall of the disc showed healing. And these results happened in just a 3 week period!
In the second study listed, they showed the same results. And in fact, in these cases, the disc had actually ruptured, which is the worst case scenario, and the CT scans showed that the fluid that had leaked out of the disc was reabsorbed by the body and the disc was healing in just 3 months.
So, why aren't you seeing these same results from your Herniated Disc Treatment?
And why would most doctors tell you that a herniated disc will never heal?
The problem is, most of the time the doctor doesn't know exactly what to do to get that to happen, and that's why they aren't seeing the results that are happening in the research I'm sharing with you.
Now let me explain to you why I really made this article and video for you today. What I wanted to do is, I wanted to basically clarify some of the myths that you have probably heard about your condition. I want to give you some information as far as what it is that you can do to not only get relief, but also to get your disc to start to heal properly.
The problem with any disc condition is that it is very deceiving. Believe it or not, pain relief is the easy part of this situation. The hard part is actually getting the disc to heal. I'm going to be explaining a little bit about why that happens and what you can do differently to make sure that yours does heal rather than what is happening to you right now.
So I'm guessing that if you are reading this article today, one of a few things is happening with you. Either:
- You're in a lot of pain and you need some relief.
- You've had this problem for awhile and maybe you're not in so much pain but you're more interested in trying to strengthen the area and make sure that the problem doesn't return again.
- You've seen that you have had the problem before, and it seems to clear up and the pain goes away and you feel good for awhile, but then all of a sudden the pain returns and you don't really understand why.
No matter what the situation is that you came to my website for, I want to tell you that this article is going to be worth your time to read because I'm going to be answering a lot of questions that you may have about spinal disc conditions.
So here's what our goal is for today. First of all, I'm going to be telling you about a treatment program that will finally help you eliminate all of your pain caused by a herniated disc or a bulging disc, and most people experience relief in two weeks or less.
Now, you may notice that I keep saying herniated disc or bulging disc and you may be wondering, is that the same condition? And the answer is yes, to a certain degree. There are 3 stages of a disc herniation. The early stage is what we call a bulging disc. Typically the middle stage is what we refer to as a herniated disc, and the final stage is where the disc is actually ruptured. And I'm going to be showing you some pictures of this in just a little bit so this all comes together for you.
Now, you might be thinking, really? I can get rid of my pain in just two weeks or less? And the answer is "yes" for most people. I've helped a lot of people with this condition and that's typically what we see. No matter how severe your pain is right now, usually pain relief is the easy part. That's the part that I can help you with pretty quickly.
What you'll be doing is learning how you can get rid of your herniated disc pain without drugs, without having surgery, and without having to spend a lot of time and a lot of money in the doctor's office. That's probably one of the biggest concerns with this condition because it tends to become a chronic, lingering problem and you spend a lot of time and money with your doctors and I don't want you to have to do that anymore.
So you may be wondering who I am at this point.
My name is Dr. Ron Daulton Jr. and I'm actually the owner of the website that you are on right now, which is Heal Your Bulging Disc.com. I'm a chiropractor in Northwest Indiana, but also I'm an educator. I've written a book, and I've also been a national speaker, traveling around the country and talking to different groups about health related issues.
It just so happens that spinal disc problems are something that I have had very good success with, and that's why I've written this article for you.
My educational background is this: My first degree is from Indiana University, where I graduated with a BA in Psychology & Pre Medicine in 1997. From there I went to Palmer College of Chiropractic and I graduated in 2000 with my Doctor of Chiropractic Degree as the class Salutatorian. I started in Private Practice at that time, and I still treat patients today. But most of my time is actually spent with my website and educating others about different types of health conditions.
I've also written a book entitled "Get Your Life Back: The Ultimate Guide To Healing Herniated Disc." To my knowledge, this is the only guide published that gives people the full story about this issue.
You're welcome to follow me on Facebook or Twitter if you'd like. All you have to do is click the buttons below:
So, why are the bulging disc treatments we discussed earlier not effective most of the time?
Well here's the thing. We have to understand a little bit about what's happening with this condition in order to answer that question.
Let's look at the picture on the right for a second. This is looking at the disc from the top down. You can see the disc right in front, and you'll notice one more thing behind it - the spinal cord and the spinal nerve. The nerves are really important because your nerves control everything inside of your body. They're very sensitive and they don't tolerate any type of pressure.
Your disc is really special too, because it acts like a cushion - it separates all of the bones of your spine and will absorb shock so the bones don't rub together when you move, which would be really painful.
The way the disc is put together is like a jelly doughnut. You have a jelly-like substance in the center, and a strong outer covering. Now here's what happens with a bulging disc or herniated disc.
If you look at the picture in the center, for some reason the outer covering tears. This can be caused by injuries such as a car accident or a slip and fall, or it could even be that the disc started to become weak over time because you have too many toxins in your body. For example, we know that people who smoke tend to have a higher incidence of disc conditions because it weakens the outer layer of the disc. It could also be a hereditary problem, where maybe you have family members who have this problem too, and then you were born with a higher likelihood of developing this condition and it develops over time in your case.
Either way, the outer covering will become weak and damaged, and now the center will start to shift into the area where the wall is weakest. Over time, this condition is really tricky because this bulge will become bigger and bigger, and eventually it's going to put enough pressure on that nerve where the nerve will become aggravated, and now you're going to feel pain (like the picture on the left). But here's the thing that may surprise you about this.
Not only do you feel pain in your back or neck where the injured disc is located, but because the affected nerve is controlling something within your body, whatever it controls is going to start to give you problems too.
So for example, let's say you have the disc problem in your neck. Well the nerves in your neck control your shoulders, arms and everything in your chest - your heart, lungs, rib cage, etc. So it's very common that a person who has a herniated disc in the neck can have pain that travels into the arms, or you might even get some numbness into your fingers or your entire hand. The symptoms will be different and sometimes people don't put 2 and 2 together and realize that it's actually coming from their neck.
The same thing with your lower back, where you might develop pain going down to your legs. It's also common to develop problems with your digestion, such as a lot of constipation or even diarrhea because all of these things are affected by these nerves. Here's the reason why I'm telling you this story.
The main problem with traditional treatments for disc conditions is that they focus on one thing, and that's the aggravated nerve. They want to reduce the inflammation and swelling around the nerve so it feels better. Now, that's fine on the surface because it does work temporarily, but the problem is, if they do that, they only get to the point where your problem looks like the middle picture. The nerve is no longer aggravated, so you feel okay and you feel like you're normal, but the problem is, they haven't done anything to actually fix the disc, so guess what's going to happen?
Over a period of time, the disc is going to start to swell more and more and you'll be back the way you were before. So that's why, with this condition, it is very common for a person to feel like they're better and then, all of a sudden out of nowhere, you have a flare up of pain again. That happens because it wasn't treated correctly and it didn't heal properly in the first place.
So what is the real, underlying problem here? Why is it so important that you get the disc to heal?
Well let me ask you a few questions.
How do you continue to function if the pain keeps returning?
I don't know about you, but I have a life to live. I have family that I have to take care of, I have friends that I want to be with, I have a job that I have to show up for - I can't do those things if I have so much pain in my life that I can't function, and I don't want to lose any time out of my life, and I know you don't want to either.
How much work can you afford to lose when you have a flare up?
This is the type of condition that can get a person down where they can not even work, and I don't know about you, but I don't know a lot of people who can lose their job for a week or even more than a week without suffering consequences from it.
What is your personal life like when you're in pain?
I'm not a very nice person when I'm suffering. Maybe you're better than I am but personally, I'm not good to be around if I'm hurting. And you tend to upset the people that you care about the most in these situations, so we want to try to avoid that.
Not to mention all of the testing you have to go through with this condition, such as the MRI's, the EMG's, and all of the other uncomfortable things you have to deal with just because of the constant check ups that you need with this condition because, like I said, it never really heals completely if you're going the traditional medical route.
The real, underlying problem with any disc condition is that it dramatically affects your way of life! That's the real issue here - how do you get the disc to heal so that you can continue living your life without pain and without being limited?
Guess what? It's not your fault that you didn't know there was something better you could do, because the problem is that your doctor probably didn't know. Most doctors tend to get very focused on what they do and they don't look outside of their discipline to see if there are other methods that might be more helpful for your condition.
So in their mind, if they give you what they have to offer, which are the medications, injections or other things that don't always work for you, then they don't really have any other option for you.
So you end up thinking that you just have to live with this for the rest of your life, and yes, if you just stay with traditional treatments you would, because they don't have any other options. However, I'm here to tell you that there are a lot of options that you can use that your doctor may not know about, and they couldn't tell you about them, simply because they didn't know.
Now you're probably thinking, is this guy for real? He's saying a lot of really big things, telling me that I can get out of pain in as little as two weeks, telling me that there are options available to me that my doctor doesn't even know about and come on, your doctor went to school just as long as I did so why would you believe that?
Well the truth is you should be skeptical. There's a lot of misinformation on the internet and in my opinion it's better to listen to the people who I've helped rather than to listen to me.
So why don't we listen to a few testimonials from my patients so you know that I am a real person, and I do get good results with spinal disc conditions. Once I've proven to you that I'm actually a good guy and I'm here to try to help you, we're going to go ahead and continue with some better information.
Here's What a few of My Patients Have To Say:
“I would strongly recommend anybody to come to you instead of going to a surgeon...”
“Hey Dr. Ron – this is Lisa Writt, just calling to tell you my story. I’ve basically had a bad back since I was a kid – I had arthritis. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was in a car accident and came out of it with a herniated disc.
I was treated for that – went through therapy, massage, and all that, and it didn’t help. Then, a few years ago, I fell in my kitchen, and I’m guessing that’s how I got the second herniated disc.
After that my pain was really, really bad. I went and had an EMG done and they couldn’t specify which nerves were being affected, and the EMG was very, very painful.
My family doctor sent me to a surgeon, and I was told by him that my only two options were to get cortisone shots, or if that didn’t work, have back surgery. He said a lot of people wind up worse with the surgery, or it doesn’t help at all, and very few feel better.
So, I went to go get the cortisone shots at St. Catherine’s Hospital and wound up in the waiting room for 5 hours, and during that time I spoke with a lot of the patients there waiting for their cortisone shots. The story I got from about 20 people was that sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t – there’s no guarantee. And, from what I’ve read, it damages your back more.
So, anyways, I decided not to get the shots, and I found out about your practice from my father, and the first treatment I had from you relieved the pain from the pinched nerve that I had, and it’s just been getting better ever since then.
When I went to that surgeon, I felt that I was heading to the point where I was going to be in a wheelchair – that’s how bad my pain was and how much it affected my everyday life.
Like I said, you got rid of that right away, and with my discs, I’ve had a lot of improvement. You got rid of that sciatica pain also, and that was really, really something. I’ve had a lot of improvement in my neck and you got rid of my headaches also. It’s all good!
I would strongly recommend anybody to come to you instead of going to a surgeon.”
“We’ve been to many chiropractors in our lives, and Dr. Ron has been the best one I have ever encountered...”
“Hi – this is Barbara Novakovich calling. I was calling because I wanted to say how well Dr. Ron Daulton, Jr. has helped me with my shoulder issues (I’ve had them since a car accident) and subsequent neck issues as well.
I went to a chiropractor for a year to try to resolve these issues, to no avail. I ended up having surgery, and still it was not feeling well. I met Dr. Daulton, Jr. and decided to go see him for awhile to see what he could do.
My mobility was very limited, as well as pain (certainly not as bad as before the surgery, but I still had residual pain).
I am very happy to report that within 2 weeks, the pain was completely gone and the mobility, which my orthopedic surgeon said that I would never get back, I did get back.
I’ve been going to Dr. Ron ever since, with any kind of problem I have. I would tell anybody to go to him, because we’ve been to many chiropractors in our lives, and Dr. Ron has been the best one I have ever encountered.
He’s caring, listens very well, addresses every issue – I can not say enough about him. Thank you.”–Barbara Novakovich
“I just wanted to thank you very much for what you do – it’s amazing to me...”
“Hi Dr. Ron – I wanted to call and let you know about an exciting story for me. A couple of years ago, I had pulled my upper back out (the top rib area), and I went through physical therapy. It was six weeks, and it still never got better.
I had a similar incident just 2 weeks ago, and I came to you the same day that it happened. Once I got in, the next day – the next day – I was amazed! The next day it was fine – it was still a little tender, but it was so much better. And, I have no problems with it today, which is 2 weeks later (instead of 6 weeks later, like in physical therapy).
So, I just wanted to thank you very much for what you do – it’s amazing to me, considering I had gone through physical therapy in other incidences. Thank you so much for what you do – God bless.”–Kim Hall
You're probably thinking at this point, What does this have to do with me? Maybe you're a good doctor, maybe you help a lot of patients and that's fantastic and I'm happy that you do that. But I live somewhere far away from Northwest Indiana so I can't come to visit you. So how are you going to help me? The way I'm going to help you is through the guide that I've written called "Get Your Life Back: The Ultimate Guide To Healing a Herniated Disc."
The reason I created this guide was because I actually started to become fustrated. I saw a lot of patients who were going to their doctors and many weren't seeing the results that they were hoping to see and they would come to me because they'd hear about me and they would start to get better. You know, everybody needs this information so I want to make sure that you have that too. So what I did is I actually created this guide in order to share the information with you.
My guide is packed with everything you need to know to experience relief and heal your spinal disc condition.
Remember when I said there's a difference between pain relief and actual healing? The goal of the guide is to give you not only relief, but also healing. But there's a couple of secrets that you need to know about this.
In order for a herniated disc to heal completely, you must use specific
treatment strategies in a very specific order - if you do even one of these
steps out of order, your disc will never heal correctly!
There are actually almost 30 treatments that I've discussed in my guide, and most are things you never heard of before. But you can't just go and do the treatments out of order. You've got to do them in a step by step fashion and that's why, although something like Physical Therapy could be a wonderful thing, if you do it out of sequence, you're not going to see the results that you would have if you actually did it in the order that I teach in my guide.
There are many people offering a single solution. You might find tons of
books on this topic, but they're only going to cover 1 thing. They might talk
about exercises that can help, they might talk about nutritional supplements
that are good, but they're not going to give you the whole story. You see, a
herniated disc is a very complicated condition and it takes a lot more than a
single step to heal it!
The reason for that is because the disc itself does not get a lot of blood supply, so the biggest issue that we're going to face with your problem in getting it to heal properly is we have to find a way to get more blood going to it because we need to send nutrients and oxygen to the disc in order for it to heal properly. And if you don't know the steps to get that to happen, you won't see the results you're looking for. And I promise you, it's not going to be from a single exercise. It's not going to come from a single nutritional supplement either. If you don't do everything that you need to do with this condition, it will not heal properly.
Following my guide is just like seeing me in my office - you will have the step by step system that I have used to help thousands of people suffering with a herniated disc.
A survey of the individuals who have used my guide showed that 90.2% experienced relief from their symptoms and were happy that they found my guide.
There's no such thing as a 100% perfect success rate with anything that we do, and you have to realize that there are going to be some people that do not respond, but think about it. Remember the success rates of the treatments we discussed earlier? This is the highest success rate that you're going to find, and belive me, I've gone to a lot of seminars, and I've done a lot of additional training just on this particular subject. If there is something out there that can help a person, I will know about it and you will see it in my guide.
Now let's see what a few people have to say about my guide.
I already showed you what my patients had to say about me personally, but let me show you what some people say about the guide.
“There were no magical theories or anything – just real practical ways to deal with the issue...”
“Hi Dr. Ron! This is Josh from Hong Kong. I injured myself about a year ago snowboarding in northern China, and I got treatment from a doctor (who was a surgeon), and he basically just gave me anti–inflammatories and muscle relaxers.
I think that’s pretty common treatment, and it really didn’t do anything for me. As soon as I stopped taking the medicine, the pain and stiffness came back. I tried physical therapy, and actually had very good success with that. I was near 100% after about a month and a half of physical therapy, but my physical therapist apparently wasn’t very knowledgeable about the subject, and really encouraged me to start exercising again and working out. He even told me I could go back to rock climbing.
It was obviously too much too soon, and I relapsed my injury profoundly worse than it was before. I now had an itchy, tingling sensation on the surface of my skin. It felt like needles and sharp pains going into my skin and into my spine, and my left arm would go numb when I was sleeping occasionally.
It was pretty bad, and very depressing, and I dealt with this for maybe 4 or 5 months.
I was actually contacting a lot of people online and doing my own research to help educate myself about this injury, and I finally came across Dr. Ron. What was interesting about his information was that it was really informative and really up front about all the information. There were no magical theories or anything – just real practical ways to deal with the issue.
So, I started using his recommendations very consistently, and after about 3 or 4 weeks, the itchy, prickly sensation and stiffness that I had had for 4 or 5 months was starting to go away, and it was beyond miraculous.
I don’t really know how to thank him enough for putting that information on the internet and being so clear as to what is the best way to solve this problem. It’s really worked for me. I’m having a few issues, where some days are better than others, but I’m able to work out now a little bit, and I’m starting to get my life back together. I can’t thank you enough, Dr. Ron.”–Josh Wright
“I found so much good, helpful information in it...”
“Dear Dr. Daulton,
I just wanted you to know that I have already improved immensely in my journey to healing! It has been about 2 and a half weeks since I started using your suggestions and I am almost pain free for most of the day and night. There are times when I still have little twinges and aches but they do not last for long.
I feel more like myself now and feel good about going out – even to the store – and being with other people again. I have become aware of the things I do that aggravate the disc and so I am trying to retrain my body and develop more healthful posture, and other behaviors.
I can’t thank you enough for creating the book – I found so much good helpful information in it and have told many of my friends about it.
Blessings and gratitude!!!!!Sincerely,
“After 2 years of varying degrees of pain / agony, I can now say that, with the help of your book, I am truly on the road to recovery...”
“Hi Dr. Ron,
It’s hard to put into a few short words, but I just wanted to send a note to say THANK YOU so very much for your book and e–tips. After 2 years of varying degrees of pain / agony, I can now say that, with the help of your book, I am truly on the road to recovery!
Two years ago I slipped a disk in my low back, and after 9 weeks of “resting up with gentle exercise” with absolutely no relief, I ended up having a L5/S1 discectomy. The operation didn’t make much difference.
I eventually found a very good chiropractor and things improved for awhile, but gradually then things got worse again. In July 2008, I was again in agony! An MRI revealed I’d slipped another disc at L4/L5. Again, I was advised to rest up / gentle exercise and hopefully things would get better, but if not, I would have to have another discectomy!
Then I found your website and ordered your book. Your book is now my bible. At last, answers to all my questions, written in a clear, simple, easy–to–understand way. I now understand what has happened, why, and everything I need to know to be able to make it better.
Your book is the only place that I have found everything in the one place. So many people offer cures for back pain but I can now see they only give part of the jigsaw. Your book gives all the information that is needed for a complete recovery. I can’t thank you enough!
I’m now off all pain medication (I was on gabapentin, tramadol, etc.), and I follow your program every day. It’s now 7 weeks since I slipped my disk the second time and with the combination of all your advice I am making excellent progress – and without any further surgery!
Every day I’m seeing small improvements, and I can see it is possible to “get your life back.” So again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
My Step by Step Guide Will Work For You Even If...
Every treatment you've tried has failed.
Your doctor has told you that surgery is your only option at this point.
You have more than 1 herniated disc - it doesn't matter how many herniated discs you have, or even if they're in different regions of the spine. My guide is designed to address every region of the spine.
You're not in pain, but just looking to make sure the disc heals so you don't have to deal with it down the road, and if that's the case then this will be perfect for you because the guide will teach you exactly what you have to do after the pain goes away to make sure it heals properly.
You've been dealing with your pain for quite a long time, just like that previous testimonial where she had had it for 2 years - it doesn't matter how long you've had it, we can still get you back on track and start the healing process.
You've been told that your disc is degenerating (developing arthritis) and nothing can be done for you - I don't agree with that. Yes, it may be a little more stubborn if you have Degenerative Disc Disease, but it will still respond to these methods, and you will still see results even if you have that problem developing.
The reason I know this is because this is what people told me when I did that survey - these are all real-life situations that people have been able to overcome by using my guide.

I'll get to the price in just a moment here but before I do that, I want to talk a little bit about how I came up with the price. You have to look at the value of something of this nature because it's a guide that can give you a lot of information and it's a very detailed, step by step type of a guide. But I thought to myself, what exactly would this save you if you were to have this guide?
If you were to come to my clinic with a herniated disc or a bulging disc and I were to treat you with all the methods that I've talked about in my guide, you would easily spend $5000 - $8000 just to see me in my practice and receive the treatments mentioned in my guide. So, it's pretty pricey, and yes, a person may have insurance, but it doesn't always cover all of that. Sometimes people have to come up with it out of their pocket too. So it can be very expensive to come see me.
The other thing I thought about was, I don't want this to be just something where you purchase the guide and then there's no one you can talk to after that if you have questions. I want to make sure that you can contact me specifically and ask me your questions to make sure you're getting the most out of it.
So when you order my guide, you will be able to email me at any time with any questions or concerns that you have. I respond to every email personally because I figure, if you put your faith in me and you trust me enough to purchase my guide, well I should go ahead and put my money where my mouth is, and make sure that I'm there to help you through it.
Typically what would that cost if I were to charge for that service? Well if I do a consulation with a patient in my clinic, the fee ranges from $250 to $500, depending on the amount of time required and how complicated the problem is, so you can see how valuable that would be also. However, I don't want it to be that pricey either, because I thought to myself, what would be affordable to a person?
You're not going to pay anywhere near what it would cost to see me in my clinic to experience the exact same results that my patients experience.
However I do want to make sure that there's a commitment. I want to make sure that you're comitted to doing the steps that I outline because that's the only way to make you feel better.
So, when I thought, what could be affordable? Possibly what I though was a night out on the town. If I go out to dinner and a movie with a friend of mine, considering the cost of gas and everything, I can easily spend $100. So, I thought, that's not unreasonable, and would a person be willing to give up one night out on the town in order to get pain relief and actual healing of a disc problem for the rest of their life? I think that would be worth it.
So here’s what I decided to do...
I'm going to go ahead and give you a discount. When I first wrote my guide, I charged $199 because of the extra benefit of being able to email me, but if you order today, you will only have to pay $99 for it.
By the way, I have a little trick for you here. That's actually when you purchase the book and then you have to pay the shipping to have it sent to you. If you want to save a little bit of money, I also offer an online version of the guide and it's $20 less so it's only $79 and there's no shipping and it is instantly emailed to you when you purchase that version, so you have it right away!
And if you buy the book version, I actually give you the online version for free so you can start the steps right away and you don't have to wait until the guide comes to you. But if you want to save a little money and $99 is out of range for you, you have that option as well. And you'll have a lifetime of better spinal disc health!
And if that’s not enough...
I’ll also send you these 3 special bonuses
(a $255 value – yours FREE)
I want to make sure you have everything you need to immediately guarantee the fastest results possible.

P.S. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by! Most people who suffer with a herniated disc will spend thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours in medical offices before they find a solution to their pain (and that’s if they’re lucky!).
Make sure you’re the one who makes the smart decision and learns how to take your life back by using the simple, step-by-step process I outline in my guide.
P.P.S. Just in case you’re still hesitating, let me run one final thought by you. Could you find another program that may cost less? Maybe – but here’s what you can expect to find.
It’s going to be difficult to find another program that focuses on the complete solution – you may find programs that discuss exercises, or vitamins, etc., but you won’t find another program that discusses all of your options, and a step-by-step system that shows you how to organize those options so you get the fastest relief, and the highest possible success rate when it comes to healing your herniated disc!
(Keep in mind that the entire time you spend searching for the solution, you’re still suffering, and probably getting worse each day that you wait, increasing the likelihood that your pain will become permanent!)
Enjoying your life again is just a click away – but you need to act now . . .
“The first thing I noticed was that
I slept better...”
“Dr. Ron's book is a great example of how implementing a number of little changes can bring about dramatic change in one's quality of life. I herniated the disc between L4 and L5, it was diagnosed a year and a half ago. I have been following Dr. Ron's advice for almost six months. His book covers everyday activities from the moment one gets up till one goes to bed, including the best way to get in and out of the car and the best sleeping position.
The first thing I noticed was that I slept better. I used to wake up after four hours of sleep to pain in my lower back.
I no longer dread the mornings when I used to have the most pain. I used to pay dearly on the next morning for everyday activities such as bringing in the groceries from the car, but not anymore. Some mornings it used to be a problem to bend over the sink to brush my teeth, for example. This used to be really depressing, and the book's title is right, I do feel that I have gotten my life back.
Occasionally, there might be still stiffness in my lower back when I get out of bed (although it happens less and less frequently), but it goes away by the time I am done with my morning stretches.
Finally, I would like to mention that Dr. Ron is really available to answer questions - I tested it. I think this is remarkable and shows that he is totally behind the advice he compiled in his book, and he is really committed to the complete recovery of the people who purchase it.
“Today I am glad to say that
I am PAIN FREE!!”
It has now been a year and a half since I was diagnosed with a bulging disc. I was pretty much stuck in bed for 2 weeks because of the debilitating pain of this condition since it was the L5/S1 disc that was bulging. I looked on the web for information about this since I didn't want surgery and wanted relief and I came across your website.
Today I am glad to say that I am PAIN FREE!!
I direct everyone I can to your website when I gladly tell them how I was able to heal my bulging disc without surgery and by being faithful to exercising. I have now lost 35 pounds and even though the weight loss part of it has been slow, my accomplishment that I hold on to most is that I was able to heal my back.
Thank you again,
“I will always be thankful for the Google search I made which helped me to find Dr. Ron. He was my healing angel! ”
“I would like to tell my story about how Dr. Ron Daulton, Jr. helped me to overcome extreme pain from a bulging disc at L4-L5 and L5-S1 which were both pinching on nerves. The pain was also radiating down into my right hip and thigh and the thigh was actually numbed but sore to the touch, the sensation was much like that of a bruise or burn to the skin.
Around March 29, 2010 I was lifting down a box which had been stored up high in a storage building. I knew the minute the box started coming down that I had made a huge mistake as the box was much to heavy for my strength. I remember feeling crunched down and unable to maintain holding the box because of it's weight. I had to let it fall to the ground. I felt nothing more that would indicate a problem until I awoke on March 30, 2010.
I had the most horrible pain in my lower back, the longer I stood up or moved about the more intense the pain became. It felt as though I had a chisel stuck in my back which was rubbing against my bones. No position made this pain subside. It was a writhing type pain. I immediately called my family physician for an appointment. When I arrived at the doctor's office, the waiting room was filled to capacity, the doctor was running way behind, and by this time I could not even stand or sit, I had to find a place to lie down. Since the doctor's office was full, that was not possible. I cancelled my appointment and left for the Emergency Room at our local hospital.
Upon arrival, I was the only person in the waiting room at the ER, but there had been a trauma just a few minutes prior to that and no ER rooms were available to be examined in at that time. I waited in the lobby with my husband for two hours! The pain increased to the point that I was crying out as sharp, white-hot radiating pain ripped through my body. I had heard of people having that unrelenting kind of pain when they had kidney stones and wasn't sure what I might have been experiencing at that time. My doctor's office had told me to get x-rays if I was going to go to the ER.
When I was finally admitted into an ER room, the doctor did not see me for several hours after that. By this time the pain had become absolutely unbearable. I was given a three different shots and finally sent down to be x-rayed. I could not stand, so I had to have supine x-rays while lying on a stretcher which in itself was uncomfortable. I was asked to submit a urine sample in order to rule out kidney stones. The doctor finally came into the ER room I was in and told me that the x-rays were just fine and that the urine sample had proved negative so he wasn't concerned at that point about any real issues. He sent me home with five different medications, pain pills, anti-inflammatories, a steroid pack, a muscle relaxant and something for nausea. I was in so much pain that I was almost furious that they had sent me home in this much pain without truly knowing the source of it. I almost went to the ER room in another nearby city for a second opinion, but decided to try and tough it out overnight and see if the medications helped.
That night and the following nights for a solid week, I was in the most excruciating pain. No position I could get into helped. I had been told to use heat or a heating pad for the pain to help it subside, and then to see my family physician in a week if the pain was still there.
I went to my family physician a week later and was still concerned about the numbness in my thigh and the inability to sleep through the night due to the extreme pain I was feeling. My family physician gave me another prescription for pain pills and ordered an MRI which his office help forgot to order for me and so a week later (two weeks now in unrelenting pain), I called the office back and asked why she had not yet gotten me the MRI? She said she had been waiting for my insurance to okay the MRI, but then immediately made the appt. and the next morning I had the MRI. They said I would have the report in 2-3 days. All this time I didn't know what was wrong with me. I started to think that my life had ended as I had known it. All this time, what they don't tell you is that pain pills often cause you to have constipation which only adds to the pain you already have.
I called the office of Thursday for the results and they said they didn't have them. I called the office on Friday and they said they didn't have them, so I called the MRI site and asked them. They said the MRI had been sent a few days prior to that and that they were going to send another one right over which they did. I finally was able to get my husband to go by the office and pick up my MRI because the office clerk said that they were much to busy to have the doctor read me my results. That was on Friday, April 16, 2010!
That was sixteen days of intense pain, not one restful night of sleep, and not knowing exactly what I was suffering from until my husband brought the MRI report home to me. All my family physician's office told me was to make an appointment for the following Monday because the doctor might want to refer me to a neurosurgeon. This scared the living daylights out of me! I kept thinking that I was going to have to go under the knife and have back surgery which was not something I was looking forward to.
My life had stopped abruptly! I was so used to being physically active, this just felt like the end of the world to me.
That Saturday morning, I was so depressed, my eyes kept tearing up, I'm not sure if it was from the intense pain or my depression, but I had finally had enough of these doctors and hospitals which gave no helpful answers and offered too little concern to set the mind at ease in a timely manner.
I decided to get on the computer and to just Google in my MRI impression. That brought me to Dr. Ron Daulton Jr.'s site: healyourbulgingdisc.com
On this site I found some very useful information. I immediately emailed Dr. Ron and asked a few questions. To my honest surprise it was only a short time later that he answered my questions and gave me advice of how to ease the pain.
I immediately followed his instructions, quit taking those awful pain pills, and that was the first night I was able to sleep peacefully. He also told me that I should not require surgery for the bulging discs according to the MRI report I had sent to him. That was the first good thing I had heard in 17 days! My entire mindset changed immediately! This was not an end to life as I had known it afterall! Thanks to Dr. Ron!
I later did some more research on Dr. Ron's site and found that he had a book I could purchase online which had all the information I needed to heal this disc problem as well as have access to Dr. Ron's email help. I thought to myself, this book has some great information in it that I would like to have, and being able to ask questions of Dr. Ron was extremely helpful. What better way could I also show my gratitude for the advice that Dr. Ron had given me so freely which had immediately set my mind at ease and my pain to a minimum? He never once pressured me to purchase anything, he was just always there online through the email to help me through this ordeal. I will always be thankful for the Google search I made which helped me to find Dr. Ron. He was my healing angel!
“I want to extend a gigantic THANK YOU because you are the only one who has been able to help me, quickly!”
I've been meaning to write to you for the past week or so but haven't been able to. I want to extend a gigantic THANK YOU because you are the only one who has been able to help me, quickly! You are doing an incredible service with your eBook and website! My circumstances are a little strange but I want to explain . . .
I am a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army, and my unit is currently deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I'm the company executive officer for A Company, 2nd Battalion, 124th Infantry Regiment, a key leadership position. Around July 14 of this year I developed pain in my right trap which over the next few days developed into extreme pain in my right shoulder and radiating down my right arm. The Camp Virginia (Kuwait) surgeon said it was a pinched nerve in my shoulder, my battalion PA suspected a neck injury and ordered MRI. The next 2.5 weeks were the worst of my life. Pain levels of 8 or 9 / 10 every day, weakness, loss of dexterity (couldn't fit a key into a lock), burning like you wouldn't believe, in my right arm and hand.
So when the MRI results came in and the dx was herniated discs at C5-6 and C6-7 with C6 nerve root compression and entanglement, possible spinal cord involvement, the PA said he was MEDEVAC'ing me to Germany for surgery. Yes, surgery. Neck surgery. Cutting my throat and removing discs and fusing vertebrae. Right next to my spinal cord. I was scared to death. Anyway, needless to say, I was confused and angry and depressed, and to make matters worse, the next day was the worst day for pain I'd experienced yet. The Percocet and flexeril was doing nothing, and the Tiger Balm did nothing for me either. All prescribed by the doc and physical therapist on post.
So I decided that now that I knew the diagnosis, I was going to take treatment into my own hands and started with logging on to Google and reading everything I could find about cervical disc herniations, bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, ANYTHING I could find. So I came across your website and started listening to your video. Your price of $100 was nothing compared to the possibility of finally finding relief. I would have paid 5x the price to make the pain go away!
I downloaded the book (AWESOME idea to make it downloadable) and immediately started using your recommendations. I woke up the next day, the pain was about 50% better! UNBELIEVABLE. After everything the doc, PA, and physical therapist had told me, the recommendations that you made was what worked. Within a week, I was down to a 2 or 3 / 10 and my strength and dexterity were back!
Two nights ago I arrived at Ft. Stewart here, stateside, to start therapy. Yes, it took the Army a whole month to figure out what is wrong with me and get me somewhere they can help. Thanks to you however, I am well on my way already to recovery. Over in the Middle East, it is very difficult to get any kind of specialized medical advice or treatment, and takes a while to get you back to the rear (routine medevac). Thanks to you, however, I am well on my way to recovery.
THANKS DR RON. I will hopefully avoid surgery with your help, and be able to rejoin my unit for the rest of the deployment. AWESOME!
Very truly yours,
Adam H. Sudbury
“100% pain free!”
“Hello Dr. Ron,
I have been following your program since 8/23/2010 and I wanted to let you know that after two years of living in horrible pain, I had my very first pain free day this week. Yes, 100% pain free!
I honestly did not know what to think when I woke up and there was no pain. I waited hour after hour expecting it to return at any moment. It was unbelievable, but the second and third day I was still pain free.
I had absolutely no idea what to do with myself because I had spent so much time filling up my days with pain permeating every second of my life. I had actually forgotten what it felt like to be a normal human being that could move around and perform daily activities. I felt I was experiencing a miracle. However, I also remember reading in your book that being out of pain does not mean that I am healed completely, so I am still following your program on a daily basis and I'm taking it one day at a time.
I want you to know, Dr. Ron, that your program has saved my life. No one could live in as much pain as I was suffering through and I had begun to question whether the quality of my life was worth going on. Thanks to you I am at the beginning of getting a life back and I'm even planning all the wonderful things I'm going to be experiencing again that I have missed for so long. I don't know how to thank you. I will be using your book for life.
“I am now following your advice and am getting amazing results!!!”
“I said a prayer today for you as you have helped me so much.
I reinjured my cervical and lumbar disc herniations recently and had two new MRI's. Was ready for surgery when I thought I'd do some internet searches and found you.
I listened to your free 13 tips on video and then bought your book. I am now following your advise and am getting amazing results!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU ARE A GODSEND TO ALL!!
“I am 95% better I would say, more flexible than I used to be, but what your guide did more than anything was give me the belief that 'I could get better' in a situation that appeared hopeless”
“I purchased your guide out of pure desperation in 2010, for you seemed to be the only person who advocated being able to heal a herniated disc!!
I was in a state of desperation with a new born baby, having experience sacroiliac joint dysfunction from week 14 of my pregnancy (severe case of SPD) and not being able to walk properly, to then having my child and experiencing yet more severe pain (this time from my back). It was confirmed after a private consultation that I then had slipped a disc, then after my MRI two discs appeared damaged, one had herniated the other was bulging in my Lumbar spine, and my doctors all lead me to believe that this is what life had thrown me and it was tough!!! And that my life would never been the same and I would never be the same.....
Reading your guide was empowering. I am the first to admit that I did not stick to all aspects of it, for having a new born meant there was little time for me anyway, however, I think what I befitted most from was having some literature that actually said, you know what.....if you want to fix it.....do the right things and you can!!!
I am 95% better I would say, more flexible than I used to be, but what your guide did more than anything was give me the belief that 'I could get better' in a situation that appeared hopeless and in an area that unfortunatley the NHS in England does not assist you with, they treat your pain with meds and send you off with little knowledge as to how to help yourself! So Thanks!!
“I would like to express my big gratitude to you, as I'm following your method for almost six months and my life (and my family's life) is completely changed.”
“Dear Dr. Daulton,
I would like to express my big gratitude to you, as I'm following your method for almost six months and my life (and my family's life) is completely changed.
In December last year I was lying on my bed and crying from the pain most of the time. I'm now able to conduct a normal life again. I can sleep, stand, sit, walk, work .....
Of course there are better and worse days, but the trend is positive and I did not feel any "real" pain in the last two weeks, just some stiffness that can be solved with some exercises.
I'm very happy I found your site on internet and decided to trust you instead of following my doctor advice to get an operation.
When I meet people complaining for back/neck pain I suggest them to purchase your ebook, it helped me so much that I really would like everybody to know about it and feel better as I do.
Thank you again with all my heart, you are doing a wonderful work.
“I'm finally in considerably less pain than I've been since October”
“Dear Dr. Ron,
Can't thank you enough for your advice. I've read your book and put it into practice and I'm finally in considerably less pain than I've been since October.
In fact, the 24/7 pain had me praying to God in March to just take me because I couldn't take it any more. The pain was changing my personality.
Thank you for your advice and for returning me to myself. I feel so much better.
