- Low back pain has been reported to be one of the most common conditions. It has numerous causes and can never be lumped into one specific etiological category. The same is true for treatment. There are numerous treatments available, of which chiropractic and acupuncture have repeatedly demonstrated their effectiveness in the majority of low back pain syndromes. The most important treatment goals are to achieve a successful level of pain reduction followed by correction and stabilization of the condition.
In my four year practice, I have seen hundreds of cases of low back pain that have been successfully treated. Only the very rare case has had to be referred for surgery. In the vast majority of cases, regardless of the specific cause, the patient has experienced significant pain relief in a very short period of time with the administration of a specialized acupuncture point formula. In many cases, pain relief was considerable before chiropractic and/or physiotherapy procedures were even implemented.
Acupuncture Points are selected to promote the circulation of qi and blood, to relieve pain, to relax. muscles and to activate the blood circulation. The classic formula for low back pain are BL23, GV3, BL 40, and optional Bl 25, BL26, GV 4, Bl 52, KI 3, GV 26, Yaoyan, Yaotongxue and Ashi point. Even though I always recommend 7 treatments in cases of lumbar pain as a trial of therapy, I fully expect to discharge the patient from acute pain relief to stabilization care within the first four visits.
