Acupuncture can provide long-term relief from back pain.
Assessment by a qualified Acupuncturist will include taking a full history and conducting an examination to determine the location, nature and extend of your pain. Acupuncture treatment can safely be given for acute and chronic low back pain.
Many people show a rapid response to acupuncture and experience immediate pain relief; in other cases, the condition may require several courses of treatment. Pain relief through treatment with acupuncture can also reduce the need for medication. For more chronic pain, acupuncture can play an essential role in maintaining a healthy back and reduce the chance of a return to pain.
Acupuncture can safely be given in combination with other forms of treatment, including massage and pain killers. It is important to tell your practitioner what other forms of treatment you may be receiving and what if any other conditions you have. These can influence the type of treatment you will receive and will help your acupuncturist give you the most effective treatment for your condition.
