Back pain is commonly seen in CKD and it may influence their normal life in serious case. Acupuncture is reported to be helpful in relieving chronic back pain. When pain occurs in body, our body will release some natural killer to suppress the pain. Acupuncture can stimulate some acupoints to stimulate the production of natural killers to relieve back pain.
