OPINION

In the ancient work Su wen, an entire chapter (41th) is dedicated to diagnosis and treatment of lumbar pain. The title is acupuncture for back pain (刺 腰 痛), phrase that can be freely translated as “various type of puncture in lumbar pain”. Various types of punctures are mentioned in particular blood-letting. This chapter is also one of the most practical references for blood-letting therapy. The final part of the chapter contains a synthesis of the main lumbar pain associated syndromes and accessory symptoms. For the preparation of this study I analyzed the original text with the help of English [1] and French translations [2], adding some evidence from Pubmed database.
