To treat persistent lower back pain, firm pressure may be applied to acupoints on the Bladder and Gallbladder meridians, relieving pain and stimulating the flow of qi.

Experts suggest that pressing the B 54 acupressure points, which are behind your knees, may help move pain and pressure away from your back. To press these points follow the steps below:
