Whether you had injured your back pain years ago or simply have idiopathic back pain. Acupuncture can easily fix your problem. Often back pain is associated with kidney xu. Kidney xu often includes knee pain, back pain or tension and/ or hair loss. The emotion of the kidneys is fear. Often the pain can be the result of long term fear. By receiving acupuncture your bodies pathways/ meridians/ channels energy flow will correct and your pain will go away. Along with the pain your diet will change and you will crave more nutritious foods that benefit your body in a positive way. In practice, I often see knee pain, discomfort and injury in direct correlation to low back pain.
Yes, this pain can also be caused by excess weight in the abdomen pulling the low back and pushing onto the knees. All of which can be relieved by both acupuncture and herbal medicine. I have several wonderful formulas that I prescribe to my patients that greatly help in decreasing back pain by nourishing the kidneys and liver and dispelling wind damp. A great example of which is Du Ho Ji Sheng wan. However, I would not go onto the internet and order some right away if you are experiencing back pain. There are many factors that go into diagnosing back pain in Eastern Medicine and yours may be a completely different cause. A great example of which is if you have a UTI and have back pain directly related to that you would want to clear heat in the bladder and probably also the kidney and not just tonify the kidney like you would in kidney qi deficient back pain.
I have had many years experience and hundreds of patients that I have successfully treated for back pain and look forward to helping you or your loved one regain their new pain free life. Please fel free to call me with any questions you may have.
