Press These 2 Points near Your Hips to Eliminate Lower Back Pain, Hip Pain, Leg Pain, Sciatica, and more

Pain in the lower back is a usual issue to many people. The factors that can cause this pain may vary, from strained back muscle, twisting the wrong way, lifting a heavy object, to simply genetics. The intensity of the pain can be mild to intense. Usually, there is a sensation of burning or tingling in one or both legs.

Using medications, usually painkillers, to treat this issue, is not a permanent solution, as it only reduces the intensity of the pain. People who suffer from this problem mostly rely on alternative medicine in order to find a solution.

According to WebMD, acupuncture – a medical practice that dates back to ancient China, is the best way to treat this problem. It is completely natural, enables wellness and relaxation, and improves the body condition into regaining its health and balance.

Acupuncture is a treatment done by applying pressure, or massaging specific pressure points on the body. There are a lot of such pressing points on the body which have an effect upon specific areas, and by pressing them they relieve them from pain.

Here, we are going to focus on the acupuncture points whose target is reducing lower back pain.

There are 2 such points: B48 and GB30, as illustrated on the image below.
When massaging the B48 point, you can reduce sciatica, hip pain, and pain in the sacral area.

Taking up some special physical exercises that focus on strengthening the muscles of the low back can be, also, helpful in reducing the pain.

Another option to prevent pain, is not to wear high heels that are very high because it can lead to bad body posture which will affect the lower back and cause pain. Last, pain can be reduced by maintaining a normal body weight, and trying not to vary extremely.

Along with all these methods, it is recommended to do massage on the sore area, and to do regular exercises as to make significant improvement into the condition. Being persistent and regular into everything you do will bring you positive results.
