Back Pain Treatment

Conditions
In any two week period, 25 – 33% of all adults get some form of back pain, making backache second only to headache as the most common source of pain. It affects over a million people in the UK, with 95% experiencing problems affecting their lower back. This is because the lower back bears the weight of the upper body and also twists and bends more than the upper back. Most back pain resolves itself within a month to six weeks, but unfortunately for some people it goes on to become a long-term problem.

Acupuncture can help back pain by:providing pain relief; reducing inflammation; improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility; for some people, reducing their need to use medication for back complaints; improving the outcome when added to conventional treatments such as rehabilitation exercises and physical therapies like physiotherapy and osteopathy.
