Which acupressure point helps with low back pain?

 

Low back pain can really put a damper on daily activities. Unfortunately, it is very common and often has to do with a previous trauma. But it can also be a red flag for some internal issues if it has been going on for a long time and doesn’t seem to get better.

Key points of this video:

  • Low back pain is often due to some fall or accident that happened in the past.

  • It is always a good idea to get it checked out to find out if there are problems with the vertebras or internal issues with kidneys.

  • Take a look at your mattress and see this might be the cause due to an uneven or too soft or too hard surface.

  • Notice your posture during the day - do you stand evenly on both feet or do you cross your legs when sitting?

  • Constipation can often cause low back pain. You should have a bowel movement at least once per day.

  • The acupuncture point DU 26 can be stimulated to help with low back pain.

  • DU 26 is located in your face, between your nose and upper lip, right in the middle.

  • Press and massage this point with your finger, fingernail or pen (avoid the ink!) for 20 seconds several times a day.
