CHRONIC BACK PAIN CASE STUDY – Excerpt taken from The Miracle of MSM
In 1968, during a long and difficult delivery of her first child, Hermine Zubko suffered a hairline crack of a spinal bone in her lower back. In the weeks and months that followed Zubko experienced intermittent sever back pain. Over time, the pain became constant and frequently disabled her.
“There were many occasions when I couldn’t sit, bend, stand or walk without excruciating pain”, she says. Zubko was forced to give up her hair salon business. The pain had become overwhelming forcing her to try anti-inflammatories. She took them on and off but they gave her stomach pain and diarrhea.
The minuscule fracture in her spine eluded detection by contemporary X ray and other diagnostic methods for many years however, through MRI’s and more sophisticated medical diagnostics finally found Zubko to have severe arthritis, inflammation and thick scar tissue at the site of the original trauma. Degenerative arthritis is frequently associated with back pain. In Zubko’s case the arthritis developed as a consequence of the injury to the spinal bone tissue as well as the ageing process.
Following her diagnosis an orthopedic surgeon initiated a treatment program of cortisone injections along with physical therapy 3 times a week. The program was not successful and the pain continued. Another specialist offered her some glorified aspirin but said basically there was nothing he could do for her.
By now Zubko had been living with pain for more than 15 years. Zubko had practically lost all hope and couldn’t stand the pain anymore. Zubko’s salvation from pain came as a result of a conversation during a physical therapy session. Her therapist suggested she could benefit from regular use of MSM.
Under the care of Dr Stanley Jacob she started taking MSM a few times a day. It took quite a while to feel results, but Dr Jacob kept encouraging her to continue. He said that for some people results came fast and for others it takes longer, each individual and each condition is different.
Then one day, eight months later, Zubko woke up with no pain. She was able to walk, bend, return to work full time and finally get her life back.
You might wonder how the pain could disappear from one day to the next after many months of taking the supplement? In her situation, there was likely a very gradual reduction of inflammation and pain until one day she passed a threshold where the pain level is reduced to the point where it is no longer perceived by the brain.
There are many more fantastic case studies in The Miracle of MSM. Under the care of Dr Stanley Jacob and Dr Ronald M Lawrence thousands of patients were able to find significant relief using the nutritional supplement MSM from health conditions like degenerative arthritis, chronic back and headache pain, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome and many more.
