Back pain effects 80% of the population at some point in their lives. It impacts all people young and old. Back pain is the number one cause of disability worldwide, it can prevent people from working as well as enjoying friends and family.
Back pain has many causes from acute sprains and strains to more chronic issues like disc and nerve issues.
The good news is back pain is one of many problems that responds well to acupuncture. In fact, it’s the number one issue people seek out acupuncture for. During our first session I’ll do a thorough intake to get to the root cause of your pain. This includes questions about the nature and exact location of the pain as well as some simple range of motion tests. Acupuncture is used both locally at the site of the pain and on points on your arms and legs to restore your body’s natural healing response and bring you back to a state of balance. Many people feel relief after just a couple treatments. The results are cumulative and a full session is recommended for long lasting results.
