Acupuncture instantly relieved the severe pain of my friend’s twisted back

Back, Complementary Healing, Pain or Injuries

My best friend twisted her back as she got up while carrying her baby after bathing him. She was  not sure how the pain came about- one moment she was bathing her baby- and then she carried him up in a sudden quick movement and twisted her back.

The pain was severe and my friend could barely move. Her husband immediately bought her to the nearest available clinic.

And the doctor examined her and prescribed…..paracetemol for her pain. Painkillers is what the doctor would normally prescribe for all types of pain….sometimes if the doctor suspect it is related to muscle, then perhaps a muscle relaxant would be added in.

My friend thought: ‘a painkiller? What’s the point- she already have painkillers at home’. The sharp sheering pain indicates that it is not going to be a light matter.

While driving, they chanced upon a traditional Chinese practitioner shop. My friend was desperate to try anything….anything that can take away the pain.

She was attended by this Chinese physician who had more than 20 years in practicing Chinese medicine. All she did was perform acupuncture on her two finger tips.

And voila! The pain disappears, almost as if magic.

If you go for other form of treatment, or even taking painkillers, it would take a while to subside. Once the effect of painkillers wears off, the pain would come back.

My friend was puzzled….she had twisted her back…why didn’t the doctor perform massage or acupuncture on her back?

This is because most of the time, the actual location of the pain is not where the real problem lies. TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) would treat the root cause and not the symptoms. It takes longer but in the long run, is more effective and have less side effects.

Most important, my friend recovered instantly from the treatment. Sometimes when I read other website belittling the effectiveness of Chinese healing like acupuncture, herbs, etc- I would think that they do not know what they are talking about.

Just like there are quacks in traditional or alternative healings, there are even more unreported and misdiagnosed cases happening everyday in hospitals and clinics. For those who only report based on intellectual and logical analysis- well, it would not be accurate, for one must experience it in order to know its effectiveness.

When we are unwell, we would tend to automatically (at least in the city or developed countries) think of visiting the doctor or specialist. Only if the treatment is not satisfactory or effective, then would we turn to alternative healing for a cure or relief.

The fact that our body consists of invisible meridian channels can be felt strongly when we go for acupuncture treatments. After my best friend shared her experience with me, I too went for my first acupuncture treatment. I must say I am impressed and hope to share in future when time permits.
