Does kidney hurt when you bend backwards?

In response.

If the kidney is compromised in some way, having a kidney stone, infection, inflammation, high blood and urine acidity, then yes, the kidney will hurt when you bend backwards.

Pain when bending backwards is one of the indications to the Chinese medical practitioner that there is something wrong with the kidneys. In Chinese medicine, there are two terms: “shen xu”, or kidney weakness, and “shen shuai”, or kidney failing.
