Abstract

Lumbar degenerative disk disease refers to a syndrome in which damaged disk causes pain in the lower back. The causes are multifactorial but mostly the reason is low energy injury to the disk in the lumbar area that slowly progresses with time. The pain can also radiate to the hips and legs. Statistics say that at least 30% of the people on age from 30 to 50 have some degree of disc degeneration. Acupuncture as part of the 5000 years old Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can successfully treat lumbar degenerative disk disease and hip pain. In this research are included 20 patients, 9 female and 11 male on age from 29 to 79 all diagnosed with lumbar degenerative disc disease and hip pain. All patients were treated in a clinic for TCM and acupuncture with fire needle acupuncture on Ashi i.e. Trigger points. 11 patients were additionally treated with normal needle acupuncture. Most common age group was from 30 to 40. Most of the patients (16 patients) made 5 or less than 5 treatments. All patients were successfully treated and released from the pain in the low back and hip and all the additional symptoms were gone. Acupuncture can significantly improve, balance and correct the flow of the blood and Qi energy and restore the normal function of the spine.
