Acupuncture can be extremely effective in the treatment of back pain. I have found that in as little as 1 – 3 treatments most people begin to have relief from their pain, which can be debilitating for many or just a nuisance for others.
Unfortunately, people suffer for long periods of time before they try acupuncture. Often the people that I see are contemplating pain management or surgery and want to try acupuncture as a last resort. Happily, many of these people regret that they did not try acupuncture sooner because they can’t believe how effective the treatment is.
Acupuncture helps the back to heal by releasing the tightness in muscles of the lower back, increasing blood supply to the area, decreasing inflammation and calming irritated nerves.
