The back pain is common problem today, and in some cases can be quite unbearable, including the development of other body aches due to bad position that we should walk to avoid back hurt more.

Conventional medicine offers some treatments that could alleviate this condition, but none of them can cure back pain completely. However, ancient Chinese medicine uses effective remedies in treating chronic ailments . Acupuncture is what really helps relieve back pain .

Acupuncture is a study of the energy meridians that run through the body and control its function. Diseases occur as a result of interrupted energy flow between these meridians. This means that if you improve the flow of energy between the meridians, you will also improve the function of a particular organ. Applying pressure to certain parts of the body can help achieve this, greatly reducing pain in certain specific areas of the body, such as the sword, although it is not limited to just the sword.

There are 2 types of methods: acupuncture and acupressure. Acupuncture involves the use of needles, and acupressure uses pressure and massage. Acupuncture treatments have to be performed by a professional, and acupressure can be performed by almost anyone, having the knowledge of which points to press.

Applying pressure to certain points on the body relieves pain in the joints, hips, and legs. Doing this on a regular basis can help you undo the pain for good. There are three key points that the larger cores hide:

  • GB30 is behind the buttocks, at the back where the pelvic bone ends. Massage it to relieve pain in the joints, lower back, hips and shoulders.
  • B54 is the third point, and it is located behind the knees. Work to relax your muscles and get rid of pain in your hips and lower back.
