Severe (partially low) back pain/spinal bone spur

What are the best places to stimulate to relieve low back & hip
pain complicated by a bone spur at L-5 on the right?

Generally speaking you don’t treat back pain (or anything really) based on the symptoms/location in Chinese Medicine. It is really more about treating the causal patterns and then some applications of localized treatment when appropriate (see “treating the cause vs. the symptoms” for more).

Our acupuncture for low back pain page discusses some of the more generalized approaches. In short, using acupuncture only locally for back pain will likely not yield much of a result.
