I am shifting gears on my blog in effort to adapt to life changes. One, I need to see if I can keep up on blog per week and the other is I am going to stop the videos for now.

In time, I believe the written word will sustain itself given I am able to write something reasonably personal and authentic and so, here I am, writing to you, my blog reader.

I have a story to tell, but I find I cannot tell it completely or in part yet without issue and this blog may not be the best venue for it since the situation affects more than my life as an Acupuncturist.

For now, it will suffice to provide you a brief Acupuncture tip and will try to make it short and sweet.


Lower Back Pain #2


I want to share some information about how to address your generalized knee pain, dull pain that seems to move around to different parts of your knee, does not get better with stretching, and is irritating as hell.

There’s a good chance you can address this kind of pain with a lower back treatment at your local acupuncturist.

Swelling of the tissue surround the nerve roots in your lower back can cause this type of pain and acupuncture can bring immediate relief by decreasing the condition causing pressure on the nerve roots in your lumbar/sacral area.

Another thing you can do is look at your diet and reduce or eliminate foods that contribute if lately you’ve been binging on them, could push your inflammation over the edge. Smoking, Alcohol, caffeine, sugar, fried foods, yeh… I know for some of you it’s all the good stuff and sometimes people appear genetically immune to the exposure. All those little vices add up and it may be time for you to just thoughtfully try making an adjustment.

A daily program of self-traction, by unweighting your lower back can help also. I’ll describe that in another blog.



Thanks for reading!
