Get acupuncture treatment for relief from back pain without the side effects of medications.
For the treatment of acute and chronic pain, acupuncture offers a low risk of side effects. Back pain, in fact, is the top reason that people seek acupuncture, according to WebMD Back Pain Health Center. Western researchers have studied acupuncture extensively but can’t completely explain exactly how helps relieve pain. But their investigations have determined that acupuncture is more effective than standard treatment for chronic back pain.
In addition, both the American Pain Society and the American College of Physicians recommend acupuncture for patients with chronic back pain who are not helped by conventional treatments. Acupuncture is effective for lower back, sciatica, neck, or muscle pain, as well as for relief after surgery.
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), when the flow of energy, Qi (or “chee”) is blocked, muscles can spasm because of an imbalance in diminishing blood and nutrient flow through the body. Acupuncture, however, can unblock the flow of QI to correct the imbalance while increasing the level of pain-blocking endorphins in the brain. As a patient, you’ll feel relief and experience a greater sense of well-being.
Acupuncture is a fast and effective treatment for lower back pain. Moreover, as a doctor of naturopathic medicine and a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, Dr. Tran also helps determine the root cause of your pain so that preventive treatment can eliminate it or reduce the effects of recurrence.
