Almost everyone experiences some form of back pain in their life. Americans spend over $50 billion per year trying to deal with back pain – related to jobs that put a strain on their backs, pregnancy and other structural body changes, poor posture, lack of exercise, bad lifting habits, and much more.
While the structure of the back is unique, the issues that Americans face are the same as any other type of joint pain – structural changes, inflammation, and muscle spasms.
Back pain is one of the top reasons people get acupuncture, as it is a highly effective treatment. Research has shown that acupuncture can be more effective than conventional treatments in the management of acute and chronic back pain. Through acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, and other techniques, an acupuncturist can effectively relieve back pain, reduce muscle spasms & inflammation, and support the body’s ability to heal itself.
