lumbar disc herniation
Lumbar disc herniation is very common in clinical practice. It is a major cause of back pain. Serious damage to human health. Many people have lost their ability to work. Generally due to lumbar disc degeneration caused by the disc. The trauma is an important cause of morbidity. Normal disc flexible, elastic and toughness. But with age, the intervertebral disc degeneration. Lumbar intervertebral disc elasticity and resistance to load capacity decline. Lumbar disc repeatedly subjected to compression, flexion, torsion loads. Uneven force lumbar intervertebral disc, lumbar intervertebral disc internal matter pushed to the side, appear prominent. Even annulus rupture. So that the spinal nerves oppression produce symptoms. L4-L5 lumbar disc herniation is common. L5-S1, L3-L4 lumbar disc herniation also accounted for a large proportion. Pathogenesis of disc herniation, herniated disc tissue direct nerve root compression, so that local produce or protruding tissue edema, indirectly nerve root. Produce clinical symptoms.
Clinical manifestations. Common symptoms of lumbar disc herniation back pain, radiation to the lower extremities. When L3-L4 lumbar disc herniation, lumbar and thigh anterior pain, numbness. But not more than the knee pain. When L4-L5 lumbar disc herniation, lumbar pain, posterior leg pain, numbness. L5-S1 lumbar disc herniation, the back pain, posterior leg pain, numbness, burning sensation accompanied by skin symptoms. When the characteristics of lumbar disc pain, intermittent seizures, sneezing, hard stool, cough and other actions to increase abdominal pressure, increased symptoms. Usually caused by improper turning or bending posture. Induced inadequate preparation, or waist cold when unbalanced force, or motion. Waist activity limitation, before Qu most affected.
Scoliosis patients. This is a patient in order to prevent nerve root irritation, take a protective scoliosis. Severe lumbar disc herniation, associated with lower extremity weakness or paralysis symptoms. Giant disc herniation.

Because soft tissue injury caused power weakened, or part of the soft tissue irritation spasm. Mechanical balance is broken. Rally in the presence of soft tissue lumbar intervertebral disc shift around. We can not maintain normal lumbar disc around the balance of power.
Lumbar disc protrusion in force at the time of the power imbalance. That is bound to have lumbar disc herniation soft tissue damage. Acupuncture treatment of lumbar disc herniation, we should first find out the correct soft tissue injury. Mainly based on the action of the loins to determine the site of injury.

Left and right rotation operation to be checked. To determine the site of injury.
1. Triangle area between the ribs and lumbar strain. Treatment points to 12 ribs and lumbar junction at the junction node. L1, L2, L3 spinous process nodules.
2. lumbosacral spine and the ilium between the triangle. Treatment sites next to the sacral junction node. Junction node at the edge of the sacrum.
3. The third lumbar transverse area. Treatment sites in the third lumbar vertebra nodules.
4. psoas treatment sites. Treatment points L1, L2, L5, S1 ipsilateral lumbar spinous nodules.
5. iliolumbar ligament treatment sites. Treatment point L4, L5 vertebra spinous process next nodules, iliac crest edge junction memory node.
Acupuncture treatment is to stimulate the meridians, reduce the excitability of nerve endings, promote muscle relaxation, relieve spasms, more stimulating acupoints by strong muscle contractions caused by efforts to promote the site herniation return. Dilation of blood vessels around the lesions change blood circulation, promote local metabolism, increased pain inhibiting substances. Conversion pain substances. , To change the part of lumbar disc herniation. Thus contributing to the recovery ligament, nerve root. Absorbing edema soft tissue. To achieve the purpose of resolution of inflammation.
