Do People with Chronic Kidney Failure Have Back And Flank PainWill people with chronic kidney failure have back or flank pain? Yes, back and flank pain is a sign of bad kidneys. Recognizing the symptoms of impending kidney failure can save you years of health problems. What is the cause and treatment for back pain in renal failure?

1. What causes back pain in renal failure?

The most typical sign of renal failure is lingering pain in the legs and the upper back, close to where the kidneys are situated. You often feel pain in the side of the affected kidney. The pain and pressure is often because of the kidneys inability to discharge excess fluid from your body, which leads to swelling in the hands, ankles, legs, feet and face.

Besides, the location of the affected kidneys can also be a source of pain. The kidneys are located on either side of the body, directly underneath the diaphragm, near the lower back. This is the reason why pain can radiate to the lower back, abdominal sides, or even down into the legs. If your kidney failure is caused due to polycystic kidney disease (PKD), this can understandably result in lower back and leg pain as well.

2. What is the treatment for back pain in renal failure?

The first important thing is to know the exact cause of pain. Thus, you should take an exact diagnosis to find the reason and then take corresponding treatment.

If your pain is due to PKD, shrinking kidney cyst is the key. Here our hospital recommends Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy is used externally based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Patients just need to lie on bed to take this therapy. The osmosis machine helps the active ingredients in Chinese medicines arrive at kidney lesion directly. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can shrink kidney cysts and stop their growth through preventing lining cells from secreting cyst fluid, improving the permeability of cystic fluid and promoting the reabsorption of primary sac fluid. When kidney cysts become smaller, back and flank pain can be relieved. More importantly, renal function can be gradually improved.

If the pain is not caused by PKD, you need to restore your kidney damage and enhance your renal function. This purpose can be achieved by Chinese medicine treatments in our hospital including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Medicinal Soup, etc. They combine together to activate the injured kidney intrinsic cells and stimulate their self-healing ability through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, degrading extracellular matrix, providing nutrients and preventing inflammation. This can relieve back pain fundamentally.
