Back Pain Relief and Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Back Pain Relief

Back pain is one of the commonly experienced chronic pain conditions in the U.S. It can range in severity, being anywhere from merely uncomfortable to absolutely debilitating. Common conditions that can cause pain in the back include:

  • Sciatica
  • Muscle strains
  • Disc problems
  • Pinched nerves

Most people just grin and bear the pain, believing that there is very little they can do to provide effective back pain relief. Most doctors only prescribe pain medication, which can cause health problems and may be habit-forming.

Acupuncture for Back Pain- Providing Safe, Effective and Lasting Relief

Acupuncture provides effective pain-relieving results while also supporting the body’s ability to heal itself. Recent studies have shown that, compared to traditional care, acupuncture provides lasting relief from chronic back pain. This back pain relief is also accompanied by anti-inflammatory responses from the acupuncture treatment, and many patients report an increase in range of movement and flexibility.

Very few side effects are ever reported by individuals undergoing acupuncture for back pain, and none of them are adverse. The most commonly reported reactions include:

  • Slight bruising
  • Small amounts of blood at site of needle insertion
  • Temporary soreness

Acupuncture for Back Pain Relief – Providing Exceptional Results

Even if pain medication helps an individual to cope with the immediate discomfort of back pain, it does nothing to address the underlying cause. Even worse, once the medication’s effects subside, the individual is once again in pain and at a loss for options. Not only does acupuncture provide immediate relief, it can also work to combat the inflammation that is causing discomfort by:

  • Improving circulation
  • Causing the release of endorphins
  • Encouraging healthy levels of muscle tone

Acupuncture can work harmoniously with standard medical practices, enabling patients who suffer from chronic back pain to fully explore all options that may provide back pain relief.
