Acupuncture for back pain is a proven treatment option to reduce or eliminate your upper or lower back pain.
There are countless benefits for acupuncture, making it a popular treatment option for a variety of health and wellness concerns. At Triveda Wellness in Asheville, North Carolina, when we have patients come to us with questions about alleviating chronic pain, acupuncture is one of the treatment options we often recommend. Acupuncture for back pain is effective for both lower and upper back pain by targeting the appropriate meridians.
The goal of acupuncture for back pain is to stimulate the nervous system so it will relieve the pain while also relaxing muscles that cause pain through tenseness. By triggering electromagnetic impulses and releasing endorphins, your pain can be considerably reduced, if not eliminated entirely. If you are experiencing lower back pain, we’ll focus on meridian points in the hip, stomach, foot, back of knees, lower back, and hands. If you are experiencing upper back pain, we’ll focus on the upper back, shoulders, and head.
Another good reason to come to us for acupuncture for back pain is that many of the same points used for back pain can help with other issues, such as headaches, TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder), musculoskeletal pain, sciatica, and fibromyalgia, as well as aid with post-surgery recovery. There are some situations where acupuncture is not advisable, so we’ll go over your medical history before recommending that you begin acupuncture for back pain.
