Lower back pain is one of the most common chief complaints in many acupuncture clinics today. Many patients may have previously tried Western biomedical treatments, as well as other complementary therapies. Lower back pain can be acute or chronic, and may be the result of a variety of pathologies. This article presents three case studies of patients with lower back pain, who were successfully treated with a combination of acupuncture, tuina, cupping and Chinese herbal medicine. Chinese medicine is highly effective in the treatment of most types of lower back pain. The key to effective treatment is in correct differentiation and appropriate treatment. The author hopes that these example cases are useful for other practitioners, and recommends that when treating lower back pain practitioners should keep in mind that tuina manipulation may be necessary, which may require referral.
