Back and neck pain has many causes and can often be daunting to manage clinically. Chinese medicine has many valuable tools to bring to the treatment of these very commonly encountered problems but with out an understanding of the basic structural mechanisms of back and neck pain these tools are often less than optimally effective. Once these structural mechanisms are understood a comprehensive program addressing the consitutional factors understood by Chinese medicine, the structural problems and the channel imbalances can be used to provide lasting relief.
