- Chinese Medicine explanation and treatment


There are many causes of back pain and a doctor must first establish whether the problem is muscular, spinal, nervous in origin or caused by a disease of the internal organs.

Back pain problems which are caused by strained or weak muscles or sciatica can be helped by Chinese herbs. Acupuncture, manipulation or massage may also be prescribed, and ointment, creams or plasters may be given. Chinese ginseng root, teasel root and acanthopanax bark are used to help relieve pain.


Neck pain can come from a wide number of causes. Maintaining an awkward position may result in neck muscles becoming over tired causing the joints of the neck to become 'locked' in position, this creates discomfort, stiffness and restricted movement. Neck pain can also be brought on by a whiplash injury - for example if someone drove into the back of a car you are in, or a medical condition (swelling, tumour, bleeding, inflammatory response, etc.). Sometimes neck pain may also cause headaches.

Studies show acupuncture is effective in relieving certain types of neck pain, particularly those caused by whiplash. Our experience is that it is extremely effective for neck tension and stiffness and restriction with no injury. Some studies suggest acupuncture can treat degenerative neck disorders such as ankylosing spondylosis and cervical spondylosis; in many cases, acupuncture has worked for patients whose conditions could not be solved using conventional approaches.
