Acupuncture Back Pain

Acupuncture is largely understood as a non-traditional course of treatment, not included in Western medicine, but for back pain. Although acupuncture back pain is not considered as the first line treatment for most pains and aches, a sizable number of people, including physicians as well as health professionals have started using acupuncture as their way of reducing back and neck pain.

Acupuncture is one of the forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine that was originally used almost 2500 years back. Traditionally the treatment emphasizes on the patterns of physical energy flow in the body, also called life force or vital energy, which is referred to as Qi. Proper Qi flow is considered as an essential element for maintaining good health.

According to the acupuncture theory, there are more than 2000 points on the body connecting with 20 meridians or pathways. These pathways are responsible for conducting Qi flow through and around the body. With the concept of acupuncture treatment, hair-thin needles are inserted into defined combinations of some of these 2000 points to correct and maintain normal Qi flow. We target these points to make sure your back pain is relieved completely and never comes back.

The PainHow does Acupuncture Back Pain’s treatment works?

Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles at some specific places through the meridians on the body. It is believed that the healing and pain-relieving effects come from stimulating the body, especially the central nervous system. This triggers the natural release of essential chemicals into your muscles, brain and spinal cord. These chemicals are either responsible for altering the experience of the feeling of pain or producing certain bodily changes that promote an overall sense of good health.

There are some other suggested theories that prove how acupuncture for back pain is helpful. It is generally said that acupuncture speeds up the relay of our body’s electromagnetic signals. This usually starts the flow of most of the pain-relieving chemicals like endorphins. It may also release some immune system cells in and out of the body. In some cases, acupuncture also triggers the release of opioids – the chemicals in the brain that lessens pain or promotes sleep. In fact, acupuncture is so effective that it can also change the brain chemistry of a person by altering the release of neurohormones and neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are both responsible for dampening or stimulating nerve impulses and neurohormones affect the activity or function of a particular organ in our body.

Because of the innumerable benefits of acupuncture, we believe that it can potentially reduce and relieve all kinds of pains and aches, especially affecting the back or neck. However, acupuncture should be performed only by a trained and experienced acupuncturist. We understand how important it is and we only allow skilled and certified acupuncturists to carry out the procedure at our clinic.

The Benefits 

Acupuncture back pain is relieved in many ways. First of all, the theory of acupuncture works on its basic principle of enabling natural flow of life energy, by unblocking the meridians on our body. As the procedure begins and you are going through the treatment, your nerves will be stimulated and your muscles and tissues will experience the change. Acupuncture also releases endorphins and other essential components, which changes the pain processing function in the spinal cord and brain.

Acupuncture reduces inflammation naturally by promoting the release of immunomodulatory and vascular factors. It improves joint mobility and muscle stiffness too, which assists dispersal of bruising and swelling. In addition, you will require lesser medication for your back pain. When done over a long time, acupuncture can prove to be a cost-effective technique that improves the result of conventional treatments like rehabilitation exercises.
