Lower Back Pain

Treating Lower Back Pain with Acupuncture

Lower back pain is one of the main reasons people seek relief from an acupuncturist.? A great majority of us will suffer from lower back pain at some point in our lives.? Over the last few decades the use of acupuncture to treat this condition has increased dramatically, especially from those reporting recurring back pain. Multiple studies show that acupuncture is a safe and effective procedure which can produce lasting results without side effects of the more traditional pain remedies.

For example, in a Swedish study, acupuncture patients not only reported greater decreased pain than a placebo group but reported fewer episodes of sleep abnormalities. By the end of this study, it was found that total the intake of analgesics dropped significantly for the acupuncture group as opposed to the placebo group. This is important as most Americans are unaware how toxic over the counter drugs are to our internal organs. One result I found interesting in the study was that acupuncture was found to be more effective for women. The researchers conveyed that this was because their pain may have been related to estrogen receptors in their central nervous system.

For many years I have treated people with lower back pain issues. While practicing in New York I treated thousands of patients, many that had multiple injuries. While lower back pain was often one of the most debilitating injuries, many also suffered with headaches, knee pain, and many other issues resulting from automobile accidents.

I witnessed many recoveries in my patients over those years, as my acupuncture treatments helped their bodies return to a natural balance and wellness. My patients would come in with great pain and barely able to walk. Usually within several treatments the results were remarkable. Often, my patients wanted to know why acupuncture worked so well for them. I would explain that as a result of the trauma they experienced in the accident, the energy (chi) in their body was blocked and the body was unable to heal itself. When I applied the acupuncture treatments to the correct locations on their body, it unblocked the energy and allowed it to flow freely again. The body is able to help heal itself, it??s that simple.
