On the Influence of Modern Medicine to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Acupuncture for Chronic Low Back Pain
This topic primarily analyzes the differences and similarities between Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine in their understanding of low back pain, the distinctions in thinking between the concept of “Da Fang Mai” and acupuncture in the diagnosis and treatment of low back pain, and the comparison between the acupuncture treatment described in the ancient Chinese medical text “Su Wen: Ci Yao Tong Lun” and modern clinical acupuncture treatment. It also discusses the impact of modern medical knowledge on the diagnosis and treatment approach of chronic low back pain with acupuncture, including aspects such as the integration of Western and traditional Chinese medicine, the refinement of disease diagnosis (combining modern examination technology to accurately identify diseases, and combining modern anatomy knowledge to accurately identify disease locations), and Integrate Western medicine to guide the determination of treatment plans (selecting acupuncture points accurately, determining the precise direction and depth of needling, and controlling needle sensation for a more comfortable acupuncture experience).
