Objective: Patient chiefly complained of low back pain radiating to right foot with numbness, causing him to fidget and move the foot constantly. AcuChiro Therapy for diagnosis and treatment of lumbosacral disorders is to treat not only the symptoms but also the root cause.

Methods: Spinal examination revealed a tenderness on right side of L5 and S1 with shooting pain down to right leg. A distinct numbness and tingling localized around the right anterior plantar foot, suggesting L5 or/and S1 nerve root compression. MRI not only confirmed a disk herniation but also found the lumbarization of S1. With spinal instability of congenital lumbarization, trauma induced disc herniation, caused Lumbosacral disorders, and blocked UB and GB channels. The acupuncture points are mainly the L3-5 of Huatuojiaji points, including the trigger points of multifidi and erector spinae. AcuChiro Therapy ware was applied with optimization of acupuncture, chiropractic/tuina, stretching and exercises according to patient’s conditions.

Results: Patient has completed the revised treatment plan of AcuChiro Therapy, with the optimized acupuncture and lumbosacral muscle exercises, focuses on strengthening muscle strength, thereby increasing the stability of the spine. Patient has no lower back pain and mild pain limited in the little toe of right foot. He has been able to exercise at home on his own.

Discussion: Patients with lumbarized sacrum are more likely to suffer from lower back injuries and degenerative spinal diseases. AcuChiro Therapy is for the diagnosis and treatment of lumbosacral disorders, and it may treat not only the symptoms but also the root cause.
