We do one Ah Shi treatment for Lower Back Pain.
Feedback from the patient a week later at follow-up: the pain nearly disappeared the day after the treatment. She hasn’t needed a painkiller since has been able to exercise and lead a normal life. She is thrilled!
Every acupuncturist should be able to achieve results such as this repeatedly and confidently.
We have quite a few other cases in lower back pain such as this one as described below.
A 25-year-old man presents with acute lower back pain from lifting free weights at the gym. He has very little mobility, the pain is constant, rated 10/10. He has seen an osteopath who suspected a slipped disc and recommended an MRI. We do an Ah Shi treatment.
At follow-up 3 days later, the pain is 50% better. He is able to sleep and move around. The patient is relieved as it is obviously not a disc injury and the MRI is not necessary. We do another Ah Shi treatment.
At follow-up 4 days later, he reports the pain is 95% gone.
