Acupuncture for Back Pain

It might sound silly, but: if you have a back, chances are high that it’s going to hurt you someday. Lower back pain is the most common complaint we treat at Advanced Holistic Center (tied for #1 with neck pain). Receiving acupuncture for back pain can help reduce inflammation, relieve sore and tired muscles, and help increase circulation to the affected area.

Acupuncture is a great way to tackle this common issue without using any drugs, or having to undergo surgery. We need to keep our backs strong, healthy, and supple to enjoy a long pain-free life. Bad posture, sitting for long periods at a time, stress, being overweight, autoimmune conditions, and traumatic injuries all contribute to an internal environment that brings about muscle tension, local and systemic inflammation, and spinal alignment issues. Acupuncture for back pain is a safe, relatively painless adjunct treatment that not only provides relief of symptoms, but can also help to treat the root of your issues.

No two people are exactly alike, and so no two pain syndromes are exactly the same. Because of this, we also frequently employ techniques such as electro-acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, and moxa to fully target the specific root cause of each individual person’s pain.

Depending on how chronic the pain is and how long you’ve been in pain, you will need more consistent, more frequent treatment. Think of it like going to the gym. You need to be consistent and dedicated to achieve your fitness goals. Taking responsibility for your wellness goals is just the same way, when you decide to try acupuncture for back pain. Let us work as a team to help resolve your back pain, and you will start to feel an increased sense of freedom, well-being, and strength.
