Whether it’s from bad physical habits or a sudden strain, acupuncture can bring relief to lower back pain!
There’s nothing like back pain to stop you in your tracks and ruin a fun summer vacation. It’s the main reason patients visit our office. Lower back pain affects up to 80% of the population at one or more times in their life.
The top causes of back pain are sprains from overstretching back ligaments, and strains, (a muscle rip or tear) caused by sudden force. Sprains and strains can happen from poor posture, improper lifting or lack of proper muscle warm up prior to exercise. In many cases back problems develop over time — from sitting incorrectly at a desk or steering wheel, or repetitive tasks, such as heavy lifting.
Back pain limits range of motion and complicates daily activities. And summer is no time to suffer from back pain!
Back problems are the number one reason why people get acupuncture treatments. There’s good reason. Acupuncture can effectively help acute and chronic back pain and many other pain related issues naturally — without medication.
Acupuncture is an ancient, time-tested form of therapy that has exceptionally few side effects. Modern research shows that not only is acupuncture effective in relieving back pain, it can also treat other systems in the body like the nervous system, endocrine and immune systems, cardiovascular system, and digestive system.
At CT Acupuncture Center we look at your whole health history and tailor a treatment specifically to your needs. The root cause of the pain will be treated. Your energy pathways will be opened up, and your body will begin to be able to heal itself, muscles will relax, reducing the pain.
Many patients feel immediate improvements. The best part? The treatment is safe, natural, effective and drug-free.
Return to summer fun, and let acupuncture get you back on track!
