Can Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Help Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain is something we see a lot of in our acupuncture clinic in Balmain (Sydney's inner west). Acupuncture treatments for back pain can be very effective for both acute pain (recently injured) and chronic pain (pain that has been around for over 3 months). Often, regardless of the cause of injury, the muscles of the hips, legs and lower back spasm, causing reduced range of motion and pain.
Here at Village Remedies acupuncture clinic we will first assess which muscles and structures are causing your back pain. Then use acupuncture to relax the tight muscle as well as reduce pain.
Generally, we will use acupuncture points below the elbows and knee to stimulate your body to start to relax and heal. We are looking to help improve range of motion and reduce pain from the first treatment.
We may even suggest Chinese herbal medicine to help with back pain. Chinese medicine helps reduce pain, inflammation and tension in your body, as well as improve sleep and digestion and overall wellbeing.
Our goal is always to get you back on your feet and doing the things you love as fast as possible.
