Back Pain is one of the top reasons people seek medical care, but unfortunately, it isn’t always simple to diagnose the cause of your pain, or provide relief. Back pain is often treated with physical therapy, chiropractic care, medications, and in some extreme cases, surgery.
Causes of Back Pain
- Disks between the vertebrae bulging or rupturing, resulting in nerve pressure
- Sudden Movements or a Traumatic Injury
- Poor Posture While Engaging in Heavy Lifting
- Straining muscles or ligaments
Best Acupuncture’s Approach to Treating Back Pain
At Best Acupuncture, we aim to do more than simply relieve your symptoms, but we also identify and treat the underlying cause of your pain. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine works to help vital energy, Qi (pronounced “chee”) to flow through the channels of the body called meridians. If Qi is unable to flow through the body, symptoms such as back inflammation and aching can result.
Many people find relief for both acute and chronic back pain through Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Your practitioner may also recommend herbal remedies, massage, and stretching.
