Acupuncture for Back Pain

Written By Bear Creek Chiropractic Clinic on September 7, 2018

Back pain is the new normal. In fact, studies show that nearly 80 percent of adults will experience at least one bout of back pain in their lives, with many suffering long periods of chronic pain.

As the study points out, back pain can be chronic and sometimes debilitating. Chronic pain can impact your life, work, daily activities, and even relationships. 

People with this kind of pain who want to relieve it without the dangerous side effects of medications often seek alternative therapies. That’s why the most common reason people try acupuncture therapy is to relieve low back pain. 

How Acupuncture for Back Pain Can Change Your Life

Research shows that using acupuncture for back pain works.  It improves range of motion, is safe, even in pregnancy, and is frequently used with other therapies to manage whole-body pain and health.

Some theories regarding its mechanism suggest that acupuncture may work by:

  • Helping your body produce natural, pain-killing opioids
  • Releasing immune cells or endorphins
  • Altering brain chemistry to dampen pain and encourage healing

No matter how it works, acupuncture provides a safe, effective, and drug-free way to manage back pain. Treatments are done right in the office and because they are painless, you can return to work immediately afterward.

Weekly treatments will be needed until a benefit it experienced, after which a patient can rely on a “maintenance” protocol of as-needed and widely scattered visits.
