Hi Anon

I've heard about cupping. Can you tell us how this is done and how it could benefit back pain? Are there studies on cupping? We'd like to hear more!

I went today, and my therapist continue the therapy, she surprise
still there lump in tailbone area !
Regarding the price I paid 20% and the rest INSURANCE cover the cost, and the acupuncture it is hurt , but I think who is suffering from back for a long time, you will effort it , to ease the pain.

Also today they use Ultrasound treatment to ease the pain.

Hi Anon

That's a huge difference!

Are you going to go again? May I ask what the cost was and if it hurt? This may help our other readers going through the same thing...

Yes I do, I think what I have something cannot doctor see in X-Ray.
and my therapist use acupuncture on tailbone. It could be neuralgia,
she told me for next session let her collegue to do it, he had this case in previous time.

That's good news! Trying something new with a person who specializes in this kind of acupuncture can't hurt.

Please let us know how you feel after the session - I'd be interested to know!

Hi again!

Thank you for the update!

Did you mention to your doctor about feeling something bulging out from your back? Make sure you also mention it to your physical therapist!

Hi Susan, the problem which i have , something i can feel it with my hand, not muscle spasm. But prominence which i worry about it, you can not realize with your eyes but you can touch it.

Any way I am going to make UltraSound, and tell you about the result.
