Treating Back Pain With Acupuncture

MD - Acupuncture, Ph.D Advance Course in Acupunctre
Acupuncturist, Chennai
Treating Back Pain With Acupuncture

Almost 8 out of 10 individuals have low back pain eventually in life. It is one of the top reasons people look for medical treatment. It is likewise the number one reported reason for acupuncture therapy.

Acupuncture started in China over 2,500 years back. It includes inserting slim needles at specific points on the body. As per traditional Chinese practices, the body has more than 2,000 of these points. They are associated by pathways or meridians, which make a stream of energy called Qi (pronounced "chee").

The impacts originate from the centre of our nervous system. Release of chemicals into the muscles, spinal rope, and cerebrum is then triggered.

The process:

  1. To begin with, your acupuncturist will get some information about your medical history. This will help him in exploring the various trouble giving points as avoiding those that may lead to an aggravation of the problem. Also, with this information, the acupuncturist will also be able to arrive at the exact treatment that will suit your body and system, as well as the symptoms that you may be experiencing.
  2. He or she will then examine your tongue's shape, shading, and covering, feel your heartbeat, and perhaps play out some extra physical examinations depending upon your health. This helps in understanding the various patterns related to sleep, exercise, diet and digestion. In keeping with these findings, the acupuncturist will then home in on the exact points that require treatment.
  3. Keeping the aforementioned in mind, he/she will then appoint the appropriate treatment plan to address your specific condition.
  4. To start the needle therapy treatment, you lay easily on a treatment table while exact acupoints are determined on different points of your back.
  5. Lastly, the fine needles are then tenderly set. The needles are usually sterilised and new before they are inserted.

Benefits for back pain:

  1. It enhances the body's self-healing process by stimulating the acupuncture points.
  2. Releases your body from chronic pain and specifically helps the lumbar region in better balance so that back pain is avoided.
  3. This method warms the body and creates a more congenial environment for pain free good health.
  4. Protects it against pathogens.
  5. Contains natural liquids. Changes those liquids into other usable types of energy for the body.
  6. Strengthens the immune system.
  7. Improves sleep.
  8. Improves the digestive framework.
  9. Gives you a sense of well-being

Apart from infrequent throbbing and soreness at the acupoints, there are no such side effects if you visit an established acupuncturist. If practiced by an experienced acupuncturist, the technique is highly effective and beneficial. Additionally, acupuncture is the safest therapy for back pain.

Individuals suffering from continuous back pain have observed needle therapy to be useful. Numerous Pain Clinics now utilize needle therapy as a standard treatment.

Hello, yes it can be cured. But can you please ask her to consult me once. It is important. It happens due to hormonal imbalance which are over-ruled by emotions and environment around her she is living. So need to correct it, so just consult just at least once for your betterment. And please do not take any hormonal pills to bring menses for that. It leads to obesity after 1-1.5 yrs. Take care.:)

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The copper T can causeCramps. Nausea. Backache. Vaginal discharge. Inflammation of the vagina. Pelvic infection (uterus), which usually happens within three weeks after insertion. Ectopic pregnancy (egg implanting outside the womb) – very small risk but very serious. I suggest you to consult your gynecologist. Take care

If she did not had sex in the last month then there is no reason to worry. Menses can get delayed bcos of hormonal changes or stress or weight gain or illness. She can wait for another 15 days to get menses naturally. If she had sex in last month then urine pregnancy test should be done asap.

Hello- Periods is just like a cleansing process of a female genital system. After cleansing the system requires conception so as to reproduce and give birth to new life, this is why females have a increased sexual urge after menses and is normal. Yes you can go for sex but be cautious if the blood still is coming out in patches use a condom every time.

What if white fucking we discharge outside vagina without using condom. Is there any risk.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
It is very risky to do so. This technique is termed as coitus interruptus and is highly risk as sometimes the precum (a prostratic discharge just before ejaculation) that discharges without knowledge before ejaculation contains few sperms and hence accidents can happen -------------so be smart but not oversmart because accidents do happen but do not invite accidents to happen------------------

If she has missed her regular period it is likely that she might be pregnant. In that case do a simple urine pregnancy test at home. If it's negative, pregnancy is less likely and she might have missed periods due to another cause. If the test is positive chances of pregnancy are high, in that case consult a gynaecologist without delay. Get examined and investigated in details to know exact duration of pregnancy to decide the most safe and effective method of termination of pregnancy if so desired. Do not attempt to terminate pregnancy by over the counter medications without a doctors advise. That would do more harm than good.

Benefits of walking barefoot for five minutes a day

Benefits of walking barefoot for five minutes a day
Benefits of walking barefoot for five minutes a day

Right from childhood, we've been told to never walk barefoot, lest we hurt our feet. And, that is right. However, it is advised to walk barefoot for just five minutes a day, every day. You can make sure that the area you are walking on is clean and clear, so that you don't hurt your feet.

When you walk barefoot the points on your feet, which are connected to particular organs of our body and walking barefoot, massaged/exercised those points. However, with shoes, that doesn't happen much.
To walk barefoot, select a clear ground which is not uneven or difficult to walk on. While you can walk for longer times too, five minutes is the bare minimum that is needed. This performs a natural acupressure.

Let's take the right foot first. The thumb has the energy level point, the fore finger has the stress point, hypertension in the middle finger, the fourth finger is for pms and the little finger is for chronic muscle, joint pain & other types of pain. Applying pressure on the heel of the right foot helps cure sleep disturbances and even sleep apnea.

The heel of the left foot is related to the activity and response of the immune system. The thumb controls the heart rate variability, the fore finger controls rheumatoid arthritis, applying pressure on the middle finger helps control fasting glucose levels among diabetics, the fourth finger is for respite from primary indicators of osteoporosis and the little finger is for respiratory conditions.
