Pain is a feeling that can be felt in many areas in the body (back, pelvis, chest, abdomen) and is triggered by
the nervous system. Pain is most common symptom in conditions of the musculoskeletal system, but also can
accompany other conditions like hormonal imbalance, autoimmune, neurological diseases etc. The Traditional
Chinese Medicine (TCM) recommends more intensive treatment for pain with acupuncture and herbal
medicine, so the blocked Qi can be released and the normal body function can be stimulated. In our study we
have done a survey on our patients with questionnaire of 13 questions in our clinic. In the survey participated
41 patients, 6 male and 35 female, of different age groups, with different conditions and with main symptom ofpain. All patients have done acupuncture treatment in our clinic in the past year with certain number of
treatments. In 63.41% or 26 patients, the overall health condition was improved totally, in 31.71% or 13
patients the condition is partially better and only 4.88% or 2 patients did not have any improvement.
