Lena Dunham turns to alternative medicine for back problems

Lena Dunham has turned to ancient Chinese therapy in an effort to cure her crippling back pain.

The Girls creator revealed she was seeking help with chiropractic problems on Tuesday (11Mar14), and she is shunning traditional treatment in favour of an alternative remedy.

The procedure involves creating suction against the skin with heated cups to increase blood flow and speed up healing.

Dunham told fans on Twitter.com about her clinic visit, writing, "Bet the teenage boy who just said something sexual to me from a car didn't know I was hobbling to the chiropractor."

She later posted a picture on her Instagram.com account her back marked with several circles left by the treatment, alongside the caption, "Da (sic) cure."
