Medical History:

A 73-year-old woman, who is also a lung cancer survivor came to my acupuncture office for back pain. Her surgeon had advised her to remove 2 vertebrae and the process did not guarantee results and would require long anesthesia and surgery hours and recovery time.

Case Management:

Efficacy of Acupuncture for Low. Back Pain


After inserting a few needles in her scalp in about 2-3 min time, I requested her to bend forward and she improved by about 30%. At the conclusion of the 1st session, the patient improved over 80% (it was a good day for both of us). I told her she might want to wait with the surgery and try Acupuncture.


During 2nd telephone appointment confirmation, she thanked me and told me that she was feeling  85% better. I was really happy for her and effects acupuncture brought, I would think she felt even happier. There you go, another happy beginning (not ending). This case shows the efficiency of Acupuncture for low back pain relief.
