AbstractObjective: Low back pain (LBP) is a common, costly, and debilitating condition that creates a heavy socioeconomic burden on the global health care systems. In Western Medicine (WM), the treatment goals are to relieve pain, reduce disability, and enhance rehabilitation. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture is frequently used to rebalance the vital energy "Qi". Whilst numerous literatures are available from WM and TCM in the management of LBP, the value of an integrative WM-TCM therapy remains unknown. This article aims to introduce an integrative WM-TCM service model for LBP, which is now available at the Hong Kong Institute of Integrative Medicine, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
