A 41 years old man with acute low back pain came to my clinic. He had helped his friend’s move 2 week ago and low back pain had suddenly started 3 days ago. He felt pain in his right low back with slight movements such as bending to the left side, twisting to the left and bending forward.
He didn’t have many tender or painful points on right low back, so after general acupuncture treatment, I removed hard knots on his buttocks and asked him to stand up and check his back. There was not much improvement at this point as I expected. I attached a very short needle (about 1 mm) called press-needle on his right low back where the flow of energy was blocked. I asked him to check his low back again. This time the range of motion of his low back got much better and he was surprised.
For acute low back pain, only one short needle attached where the energy flow is disturbed is always very helpful.
If you are suffering from low back pain, give a try to Cozy Acupuncture.
