By far the most common problem seen in our clinic is Low Back Pain. Through a powerful combination of Acupuncture, Tui-Na massage, and therapeutic exercise we are able to effectively treat most types of back pain.
Acupuncture works with your body to help ease the pain naturally by stimulating the release of endorphins and promoting a deep sense of relaxation. Acupuncture further reduces pain by increasing circluation to reduce inflammation and soften tense muscles. Tui-Na massage strengthens the effectiveness of the treatment by breaking up contracted muscle fibers, lengthening the muscle and restoring it’s lost function. The treatment continues beyond the clinic by teaching patients how to manage their pain with therapeutic exercises that stabilize core muscles, improve flexibility, and restore mobility.
The course of treatment for most low back pain depends on the severity and duration of the problem, however the average course of treatment is usually one treatment per week for 6-8 weeks. Most patients experience pain relief immediately following the first treatment with relief being extended with each subsequent treatment.
Back pain is not something you have to live with, acupuncture is a safe and effective tool to relieve pain and restore your quality of life.
