Do You Suffer With Back Pain?
Most people do, in fact, back pain ranks second to headache in the number of people it affects in the United States. According to Dr. Alf L. Nachemson, a scientific researcher in back problems, two billion patients worldwide have suffered from low back pain in the past decade.
“Sometime during our active lives 80 percent of us will experience back pain to some extent,” Nachemson said.
Back pain sufferers spend nearly 50 billion dollars a year seeking relief. How about you?
For the majority of those who experience back pain of muscular origin, doctors recommend conservative treatment—bed rest, use of heat, massage, exercise, and anti-inflammatory pain-relieving drugs. In regards to those drugs, however, Dr. Mark Brown of the University of Miami School of Medicine offers a word of caution. He notes that in the United States, the prolonged use of drugs actually contributes to back pain as a side effect. People need to guard against developing a tolerance for a drug, which could result in increased dosage, possibly causing addiction.
I absolutely recommend you get acupuncture if you have problems with any type of back pain, including sciatica. Acupuncture treatment will help relieve pain, relax upset muscles, and help your body to heal itself without drugs or expensive and potentially risky surgery. In some cases I may recommend an MRI just to rule out anything serious (badly herniated disc, tumors, etc), but for many patients, acupuncture is all they need.
When you come to Best Acupuncture Care clinic, I mostly use points on the limbs from the elbows and knees down, to treat back pain and sciatica. Usually only a few points on each hand and around each ankle is all that is needed, so you won’t even need to be exposed. If you’re getting acupuncture elsewhere, understand that there are many different styles of acupuncture, and your acupuncturist may do things a little differently, which is perfectly OK! Just make sure you gain instant relief from the treatment. Otherwise, something is definitely missing.
I treat back pain everyday and I deliver instant relief for 9 out of 10 cases.
