Acupuncture for back pain in a patient with Forestier's disease (diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis/DISH)



Acupuncture for back pain in a patient with Forestier's disease (diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis/DISH)



Acupuncture in Medicine 20(2-3): 102-104



Acupuncture was used to treat a 54-year-old man with low back pain and Forestier's disease. His symptoms were markedly improved with acupuncture where other treatments in the form of analgesics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, physiotherapy and hydrotherapy had proved ineffective. There would appear to be no cases reported in the literature where medical acupuncture has been used to treat back pain in a patient with this condition.
