Back pain is a common problem that affects most people at some point in their life.
It may be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. It’s not generally caused by a serious condition.
Lower back pain can be caused by a variety of problems with any parts of the complex, interconnected network of spinal muscles, nerves, bones, discs or tendons in the lumbar spine.
Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work and a leading cause of disability worldwide. Most people have back pain at least once.
Physicians typically recommend medications such as aspirin, acetaminophen,ibuprofen, steroids, physical therapy and surgery. It is thought in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that trauma, overwork, and exposure to wind, cold, heat and dampness cause back pain.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of medicine that has been practiced for several thousand years in Asia and has gathered more acclaim in the last decade here in the West. The ancient wisdom of Oriental medicine and Chinese herb therapy maintains its practicality and effectiveness for regaining the spine’s strength, stability, and flexibility.
These are the three points you need to know in order to solve your problems with back and joint pain:
- The stimulation of the first point, GB29, relieves pain of the back and leg, lumbar pain radiating to the lower abdomen, weakness and paralysis of the leg, pain of the front of the shoulder.
- In combination with point GB 30, which can be found a bit lower and behind the buttocks, on the back end of the pelvic bone, you will treat the pain experienced in the joints, lower back, hips, and shoulders.
- The third point, or B 54, is just behind the knee. Its stimulation will relax the muscles, and relieve the pain in the hips and lower back.
