Lower back pain
TCM treatment of lower back pain with acupuncture
Immediate improvement after one treatment.
2016.07.02. A young lady came to the clinic today. She told me that she suffered from an acute lumbar sprain around 2 weeks ago. She has been treated by another TCM therapist, but still has about 50% of the pain left.
She showed me that it hurts when she bends forward or back. Even sitting up can also hurt. After I checked some acupoints, I knew her gallbladder and bladder meridians were both blocked.
Since she was not afraid of needles and wanted her pain gone as soon as possible, I inserted some needles into acupoints of these two blocked meridians, and also applied cupping. Her pain disappeared immediately after I finished the treatment.
