Medical Condition:

Lower Back Pain



Type of Outcome:

Very Poor Poor Fair Good Very Good

Case Management:

Complaints: A persistent low-grade low back tension for 30 years. It was easily aggravated to a moderate to severe level if he did not regularly stretch and exercise. He rarely went over one month without having a major low back episode.

Acupuncture: Right-side yang horary points in Wood-Order of GB44, SI2, ST43, LI5, and ST36 (ST346 is as good as UB40).

Treatment process: This patient had 10 acupuncture treatments at twice a week for 5 weeks so far. The first two treatments in Metal-Order of LI1, UB66, GB41, SI5, and ST36 were immediately helpful, but the intense pain easily came back. On the 3rd visit, a switch to Wood-Order was also immediately helpful but the stability of improved state was even better. So, the Wood-Order was continued. At the 9th visit, he reported no sensation of any tension in 75-80% of time.   

Discussion: One of his favorite exercise is riding a mountain bike on trails. In the past, he occasionally had an attack of a gripping lumbar pain in the mountains leaving him stranded. With the improved state, his daily quality of active living had increased along with a higher confidence on his venture out in the nature.
