A 70 y/o male came into the office complaining of intense muscle spasms in his lower left back. The pain had persisted for 2 weeks and the patient rated his pain 6/10 with 10 being the worse. The patient’s pain was worse with walking and sitting. At times, when the pain became very intense, the patient had to resort to taking 3 ibuprofen pills.
In utilizing auricular therapy, I used the Stim Flex 400A to identify areas on the left ear that related to his low back pain. The Stim Flex 400A emitted a very slight electrical current to the ear and within minutes, the patients back spasm was gone.
