Points -  Ask the Doctor

Q: Can you suggest some herbs for inflammation of my
lower back? It's killing me.

A:  If this is an emergency, please call 911. Any health
care facility would give you that advice. First of all, we must
follow the first rule in TCM: make a thorough diagnosis before giving
the patient an herbal medicine. We need to identify what causes your
back pain so that you may be given the proper herbs for treatment.
Please contact our interns and practitioners for a complete
consultation and diagnosis. In the meantime, you could try an
analgesic herbal patch for temporary comfort or pain relief. We
don't want to just throw herbs at a problem without a thorough
diagnosis by one of our outstanding interns or practitioners.
