Acupuncture for Lower Back Pain (Lumbago)


T. I have back pain for long time every time…

I have back pain for long time every time I have pain I went to Houston Acupuncture and Herb Clinic. It always helps to eliminate the pain. I standing a lot I am a restaurant owner. Acupuncture is really helped me a lot. Thank you the clinic.

From L. D. lower back pain and a skin ulcer… 

I am a seventy year-old woman. I went to the Houston Acupuncture and Herb Clinic because of lower back pain and a skin ulcer that I've had for many years. In the past I had seen acupuncturists for over 20 years. I have seen lots of acupuncturists who only seemed to give me a black pill that only helped a little bit. 
I previously thought alternative medicine is always being slow to get result. Acupuncturist Wu, however, changed my mind. He is far more educated and really knows how to help people. Chinese medicine actually is very powerful, and the results are very fast too. It depends on who you see, how they prepare treatments, and whether or not they know what is the proper dosage and experiences, etc.  
In their clinics, every single formula comes from their knowledge. When I was in the patient room, Acupuncturist Wu discussed all my problems and medical history as he is formulating some herbs on my chart. He told me that the specific formula he made for me is a combination of individual herbs, not like the pills that are pre-made for all people. Wu explained that pre-made herbal formula contain a lot of unnecessary ingredients that are not necessarily right for me. He obviously has a lot of training and experience. 

For many years from my past experiences, all the acupuncturists I saw previously gave me are the pre-made patterned herbs. Since I came to this clinic, I begin to realize the herb formulas have to make proper ingredients and percentage that can give tremendous effects to the body system. I have never seen any acupuncturist prepare my formula in front of me. He is the first one. 

My skin ulcer has been there for many years, with no medicine ever helping my skin to heal. It always has been an ulcer with pus and draining. Since I went to this clinic and saw Acupuncturist Wu, my ulcer is getting smaller with a lot less draining.  
It is healing up! 

I also had stomach problems. I am not able to eat anything spicy. I went to many doctors but found no help. After I went to see Acupuncturist Wu, my stomach now is 85% better. I can sleep well at night now - something that was not possible before. 
Recently my leg had been very weak, with me hardly able to stand up. After two treatments, I can walk just like a normal person.  

From S.R. having trouble with my back and my left leg… 

In 2000, I started having trouble with my back and my left leg. The pain was excruciating and rendered me a near cripple. I saw many doctors and hip specialists, back and spine specialists as well as a pain doctor. I was told there was not only nothing to be done, but that my condition of scoliosis would only get worse and more painful. The doctors were right about the pain, and I was soon taking Darvoset, Vicodin, etc. To some extent I was walking around in a daze, and was depressed as well. In desperation, I tried Jo-Mei Chiang. At first I thought the acupuncture was not working, but several treatments had me changing my mind. I still have some pain, but it is bearable and I am walking like a normal person. Hurrah!  

From E. H. severe back pain and muscle spasms… 

I came to Acupuncturist Wu with severe back pain and muscle spasms. A friend referred the clinic. The pain I was experiencing was horrible, similar to when I gave birth to my son. After just 30 minutes of treatment in the clinic, I felt immediate relief and was at least 60 % better. I am very appreciative of the treatment he provided for me.

Additionally, I was relieved by his confidence. His smiles and his positive approach let me know that he knew what he was doing, so much so, I returned for more treatments. Knowing I needed extensive treatment; he even came into his office to help me on a Sunday morning. By the third day, my pain is now limited to a very small area. There is a dramatic decrease in pain, and at least an 80% improvement in the area. I feel so much better! Thank you very much.  

From L. K. lower back pain that did not respond to over-the-counter medication… 

I had severe lower back pain that did not respond to over-the-counter medication. I also had been experiencing neck and upper shoulder pain for over two months. After thirty minutes of treatment, my lower back pain was completely gone, and I had only a small amount of pain remaining in the right side of my neck. My shoulder pain was also completely gone. THANK YOU!  

From C.F. suffered from lower back and hip pain for most of my adult life… 

I have suffered from lower back and hip pain for most of my adult life. Acupuncture has been the only treatment that has brought me relief. I have known Acupuncturist Wu for many years and have received both acupuncture and herbal treatments from him. I can highly recommend him for his competence and professionalism.  
From C.C. severe back pain… 

I came to the clinic with severe back pain. The pain was so severe, I could barely walk in. Before coming to the acupuncture clinic, I went to my internist and got no relief. I then went to the chiropractor and still was limping badly. With one treatment, the pain is virtually gone and I am walking without a limp. I feel like a new person and am very grateful to the clinic for the procedures performed on me. I always feel better instantly after I have visited the Houston Acupuncture and Herb, L.P.
