Home 5 Conditions 5 Lower Back Pain

Singapore Paincare TCM Wellness provides holistic TCM treatment for lower back pain. Our Yin-Yang harmony approach to alleviating lower back pain focuses on correcting qi flow for long-term healing and improvement.


TCM view

There are a variety of factors that cause lower back pain. This ranges from injury, repetitive strain or insufficiency of qi. These factors cause qi blockages along the meridians that pass through the back, which causes pain. As we age, the qi in our kidneys tends to weaken. As the “TCM kidney” is highly related to the lower back, a weakening of the qi in our kidney is closely tied with lower back pain.
