The prevalence of back pain is constantly on the rise and there are millions of people affected by it at the present moment. Back pain can be extremely painful and even debilitating, which makes it hard to relieve and cure.
Although conventional medicine does provide treatments for most health issues, currently there isn’t any cure for joint or back pain.
On the other hand, traditional medicine offers certain treatments which are time-tested and simple to perform. For instance, acupuncture, an ancient Chinese treatment, effectively treats various chronic problems.
Acupuncture is the study of energy meridians that run through the body and have an impact on its overall function. Improper flow of energy through these meridians is often the major cause of certain diseases, which means that establishing proper flow of energy restores the damaged organs and treats the disease. For those who are not familiar with this treatment, note that this can be obtained by applying pressure to specific points on the body.
If these points are pressed or massaged, the treatment is called acupressure. On the other hand, if it uses needles, it`s called acupuncture and it requires special needles, specific training, and professional practitioner.
Stimulation of certain points relieves joint pain as well as pain in the legs and hips. Regular stimulation not only provides immediate results, but alleviates pain for good. Below you have a list of three points you need to be familiar with when it comes to back and joint pain:
- GB 29
This point is located at the junction of the pelvis and the femur. Stimulating this specific point helps relieves joint pain as well as pain in the hips.
- GB 30
Stimulating GB 29 and GB 30, which is located a bit lower and behind the buttocks ( on the back of the pelvic bone), helps relieve joint pain and pain in the lower back, hips, and shoulders.
- GB 54
Stimulating the point GB 54, located just behind the knee, relaxes the muscles and relieves pain in the lower back and the hips.
Stimulating these points on a regular basis will help you get rid of joint and back pain for good!
