Summing up the article:
Dr. Michael Modic
defined his findings in 1988. Today, 30 years later, big pharma pops up with a solution (?) Be very skeptical. Put millions on antibiotics for months crashing intestinal flora and causing even more trouble. Media crying Nobel prizes. Business as usual.
The 40% figure may be very misleading. Because if infections are disintegrating your lower back, more severe physical damage is right around the corner. The more physical damage, the more time it takes to recover. But the primary cause would still be Modic changes (infection) and could have been prevented by doing a cleanse before the trouble starts. This is why I think MMS has the potential to prevent far more back issues than just 40%.
I've had quite a few confirmations myself of MMS solving pretty bad back issues. Mostly in a matter of hours or days. If your back feels kind of weak or tired, you likely have Modic changes going on. Don't wait for your back to collapse. Do 3 days to a week of protocol 1000 and see what happens. Should have a very strengthening effect on the lower back.
I'm currently experiencing backache which seems to be bacteria related - I believe I was bitten on my back by bed bugs / a tick or something similar when I recently stayed in a hostel.
I've tried taking MMS (HCL version) but it doesn't seem to be making much difference - However taking 100mg of Doxycycline seems to make a huge difference in the pain levels in 1 to 2 hours of taking it.
So I'm not quite sure what to do. I've just started making Milk Kefir in order to boost the levels of good bacteria in my body.
But I'm quite worried about how little effect the MMS seems to be making.
Archer, the article you link to is about a specific condition called "Modic changes". This condition is caused by internal infections, not insects.
I do not know what is causing your back issues. But the article is about 40% of all back issues being caused by Modic changes.
If you got Modic changes, chances are that these over time have caused physical damage. Such damage may take more time to heal. And it may take more than just MMS (like rest, nutrition and exercise).
Inflamed areas in and around kidneys caused by toxic overload is another common cause of back pain.
MMS should be very effective for both types of back pain mentioned here.
If the 6&6 protocol doesn't help I would try something like that what ClO2 suggested.

Sorry to hear Archer. Back pain is a pain in the butt, literally.
The point still is that you linked to an article describing a specific medical condition known to be responsible for at least 40% of all back issues. And this article is about something completely different than the "bed bugs" you theorized to be the cause of your back pain.
To clear this up I linked to another article describing what the article you posted actually is about, namely "Modic Changes". You don't need 100 articles to explain this specific "Modic changes" condition..
The good thing is that this
condition happens to be caused by an internal bacterial infection (not bed bugs). And that it often can be helped in hours with a bit of ClO2.
As I know first hand how debilitating back pain can be, and how easy and fast "Modic changes can be helped by ClO2, I hope this can help clear up the wide spread misunderstandings about what causes back pain.
If ClO2 doesn't help you, or doesn't help anyone else currently dealing with back pain, then you may need to look for other possible causes.
However, first to consider would be mechanical damage caused by "Modic Changes" that may have been going on for many years. From my own experience "Modic Changes" can tear away both tissue and bone in the lower back. If it gets too far and damage has occurred, then a couple ClO2 doses alone may not be sufficient. If this is the case then expect recovery may take months, or even a year (or two).
Note this is me drawing conclusions about the ultimate result of untreated "Modic Changes" - literally a rotten lower back ready to collapse (and slow recovery).
This way many back issues that do not respond well to MMS, may still have "Modic Changes" as the primary cause. It would not say that MMS doesn't work, but merely that MMS only is not enough. Other "meds" like time, nutrition, diet, exercise etc may need to be included.
Since doxycycline helps you this indicates that you most likely have "Modic Changes".
Antibiotics will probably slow recovery, or even worsen symptoms over time. Same with high carb diet. Getting into ketosis may be a good idea as sugar feeds infection.
A few painless hours during the day is precious, especially if you can't afford being sick, but I would sure quit Doxycycline.
By the way I did recover from serious "Modic Changes" myself. I had a back surgery the same year Mr.Modic told the world about his findings, 1988. I heard about "Modic Changes" only 2 years ago. But I knew ClO2 helped my back pain long before that.
Periods of bad diet and little or no exercise tends to have my symptoms return.
