Back pain is a major problem faced by many working people in Sharjah . Regular pain in the back muscles can hinder your functioning, concentration level, your effectiveness and efficiency. Continuously working for long hours in the office can cause severe back pain. Lack of exercise in our daily schedule is a major reason for facing the problem of back pain. We should pay attention to our posture and sitting position while working.

This is a simple and easy workout that you can practice at your home to relieve back pain in Sharjah . For beginning this workout lie down on the floor. Move your right knee upwards with the support of your hands so that it comes close to your chest while keeping your left leg straight on the floor. Keep your shoulders straight on the floor and then bend down your leg so that it touches the ground. Now do this same process with the left knee while keeping the right leg straight. Do some rounds of this workout to relieve back pain.

Neck Pain: What Causes it and What Should I Do About it?

The cosmetic drug Botox (botulinum neurotoxin type A) is helpful when used in treating painful neuromuscular disorders because it can stop or reduce muscle spasm by blocking nerve signals to the injected muscle. It is an FDA approved medication injected for the treatment of painful skeletal muscular conditions. These conditions include chronic migraines, cervical dystonia, and upper limb spasticity.

Chronic Migraine

A chronic migraine is when an adult patient (14 years of age or older) experiences a headache which lasts four hours a day, 15 days or longer a month. Your doctor can inject Botox for treatment of migraines along the bridge of the nose, the temples, the forehead, the back of the head, the neck, and the upper back. The relief provided by these injections can last up to three months. Botox has not been approved for episodic migraine (14 headache days or fewer per month) or for patients under the age of 14.

Upper Limb Spasticity

Upper limb spasticity occurs when your body’s nervous system has been damaged in some way, such as by a stroke, disease (for example, cerebral palsy), or injury. This condition affects the way you move your arms. Symptoms can include spasms, stiff arm muscles, clenched fists, and trouble using your arms. Your doctor can directly inject Botox into your muscle to relax the muscles and ease the spasms. Botox has not been approved for patients with upper limb spasticity under age 18 years.

Cervical Dystonia

Cervical dystonia is a rare neurological disorder. Typical symptoms for this condition are involuntary muscle contractions in the neck, which cause abnormal movements of the neck and head. Botox can be used to reduce the severity of abnormal head position and neck pain.

Other conditions associated with dystonia are strabismus and blepharospasm. Treatment with Botox for these conditions are also FDA approved. Strabismus is crossed eyes, while blepharospasm is eyelid spasms. Your eyes have six muscles, with two of these muscles moving the eyes from side to side. With strabismus, one of these muscles weaken, and the stronger muscle will pull the eye in the opposite direction. Doctors will inject Botox into the stronger muscle to relax it, thus giving the weaker muscle a chance to recover. Botox can also be used for people who have blepharospasms (eye spasms).

Lower Back Pain

Botox may also be useful in treatment of lower back pain. Experimental studies have shown that pain relief from Botox injections lasted three to four months.

Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome

Botox used for the treatment of Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome is still experimental. Botox may relieve jaw tension, which could lead to tension headaches and jaw pain.

Chronic Anal Fissure

Anal fissures are tears in the anal canal that cause pain during a bowel movement. Botox injections in the internal anal sphincter can relieve symptoms for up to three months, giving the fissures to heal and the symptoms to go away.

Botox has also been shown to be effective in other conditions, such as tennis elbow, pain after mastectomy and hemorrhoidectomy, and chronic prostatic pain.

go-to points for lower back pain

Lu channel points for BL channel pain

Lower back pain is probably one of the most commonly seen things acupuncturists see everyday. It can be quite straight foward and easy to fix and sometimes you get that one patient and you just say “ I have no idea what to do with you.” (we’ve all been there one time or another.) Through years of trail and error, (and even more error) here’s a list of my fav lbp points. Most of them are from seminars and books on Master Tung points and the Tan systems and other great teachers I’ve met along the way:

  1. 22.04 Ling Gu & Da Bai 22.05

Da Bai

Location: Lock fingers in a grip to locate the point in the depression 0.5 cun proximal to the junction between the 1st and 2nd metacarpal bones. (Young, 2008.)

Ling gu

Location: between the index and thumb, the 1st and 2nd metacarpal bones, 1.2 cun from Da Bai. (Young, 2008.)

This combo definitely has great effects for sciatica, lower back, and variety of different diseases. Because these points are located on the Yang ming channel (yang ming is abundant in qi and blood,) they are able get quite immediate effective result for many patients. Needle opposite side.

2) Si3

Located on the ulnar border of the hand, in the substantial depres- sion proximal to the head of the fifth metacarpal bone (Deadman, 2007.)

It is a great point for neck and lower back pain because bladder channel (tai yang treats tai yang) and also is the shu-stream point of the Small intestine channel. As the confluent point of the Du channel it can treat spine. Shu-stream points on yang channels pertain to wood, which treat tendons and sinews as well. (Young, 2008.) Needle opposite side.

3) Lu5 -Lu6

Learned this one from Dr. Tan a few years ago. Hand tai yin balances foot tai yang. Lung channel is a great place to start with for lower back pain on the bladder channel. I like it because its also go some great surface area to work with and less painful for the patient. Plus needling muscle treats muscle. Needle either side.

4) 77.28 (Guang Ming) / Kd7 (Fu Liu)

Kd 7 in TCM and 77.28 (Fu Liu) in the Master Tung system. Doesnt really matter what you like to call it. All roads lead to Rome. As long as you get the results its all good. 1 cun posterior and 2 cun superior to medial malleolus. Kidney and Bladder interior/exterior relationship. lower leg as an image of the lower back. needle either side.

5) 1010.25 Zhou Shui

Two point unit: First point is center of occiptal protruberance and the second is .08 cun above the former. (Young, 2006.) Thread through scalp to hit both points. Great for pain directly on spine L5/S1 joint. Bone treats bone all day.

6) Yao Tong Xue

Threw in this extra last one because it came into mind: Yao Tong Xue on the forehead. This one is a random point I learned from one of my teachers in China. He named it after himself but I’m sure he ripped it off a book somewhere. It’s the area about 1.5–2 cun above yin tang using the forehead as an image of the lower back.

Well thats it folks! Whats your fav go-to points for lbp? Please leave in comments!
