1.5 cun lateral to GV 5, level with L1.
Of many possible clinical applications, it may be considered to influence the following issues/symptoms:
Ub 22 has the following theoretical associations which serve as important guideposts in designing an effective treatment protocol:
A single acupuncture point is not commonly thought of as an empirical way to influence a TCM diagnostic pattern. UB22, however, is a strong candidate to be incorporated into an acupuncture protocol for patients who exhibit: Bladder Damp Heat, Spleen and Stomach Damp Heat, Stomach Dampness and/or Stomach Food Stagnation
UB 22 may potentially be used, in coordination with a well designed acupuncture treatment protocol, to influence the following conditions: Abdominal Pain, Borborygmus, Edema, Fever, Headache, Jaundice and/or Urinary Disorders (Lin Disease)
While not necessarily valid clinically, EX Huatuojiaji at L1 (L1 innervates and influences the adrenal gland, t…), GB 25 (Local point for pain in the lumbar a/or lateral c…), GV 5 ( Local point for low back pain. Diarrhea…) and UB 51 (Local Point.) are nearby.
