Are you suffering from lower back pain and in need of pain management help? Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers various modalities, which are effective for treating back pain. These modalities usually involve herbalism and/or acupuncture.
Back pain is often only a symptom of internal imbalance. For instance, it may be a symptom of kidney deficiency, Chi or Yang deficiency, cold accumulation, or even meridian obstruction. Such internal issues are usually treated with herbalism.
Acupuncture also has some similar effects on treating these issues. It reduces pain from these issues. Also, it promotes the healing process by improving the flow of blood and energy (Chi) to the affected area. During an acupuncture session, Endorphins releases, reducing stress. Experiencing immediate pain relief after the treatment is quite common.
At Annie Tiang TCM, we believe in taking a holistic approach using acupuncture and herbalism when it comes to the treatment of lower back pain.
It is very common among working professionals to experience back pain. Once, people involved in physical labor, like builders, construction workers, roofers, etc., only used to experience back pain. However, in recent years, we have seen a rise in the same problem among office professionals and executives.
A common cause of back pain is poor posture from prolonged sitting. Other unhealthy sedentary life habits are also among the most common causes. The poor sitting posture while facing the computer for a prolonged period causes some additional stress and pressure on the spine. It, in the long run, leads to impinged nerves and muscle imbalances. If the pain persists, you must visit a spine specialist to diagnose the root causes.

Neck pain is a common condition and can happen to anyone. Sometimes, it can be only a temporary condition that disappears with time. Hence, it may seem harmless. But if left untreated, it can extremely disrupt one’s lifestyle.
Causes of neck pain include muscle strain, trauma, disc herniation, degenerative cervical spine, etc. Rheumatoid arthritis and infections are among inflammatory causes.
However, if your neck pain symptoms don’t go away, it can mean something more serious. Here are some conditions that you should remind of:
The cervical spine houses important nerves, like the ones supplying the upper limbs and the spinal cord. Each nerve that exits the spine at different levels provides sensation to the skin of the upper limb.
If the nerve root impinges at the neck level, hence, the patient will experience variable degrees of pain to the arms on the affected side.
Such pain is called radicular pain. The most common causes of nerve impingement at the neck level are herniated discs or bone spurs termed osteophytes. This results in nerve irritation and eventually, the nerve loses its function.
Hence, the patient may experience pain, numbness, or weakness in that affected area.
Compression of the spinal cord at the neck may cause impaired balance, resulting in unsteady walking. This way, neck problems can cause difficulty in walking. People with myelopathy finds difficulty with movements that require a fair amount of coordination, like walking up or down the stairs or fastening the buttons on clothes.
