Can you guess what happens when you have arthritis or degeneration?  The muscles of your body have to work differently to not tighten and cause you pain. The tendons and ligaments also must compensate. Acupuncture for back pain alleviates pain by increasing circulation to these parts of your body.

It doesn’t matter the location. This scenario plays out in every human being with age or with living life. I see teenagers in pain along with people in their 40’s and 50’s or seniors.

Acupuncture for back pain helps with spondylosis, stenosis, disc degeneration even nerve impingement. Western medicine uses these terms to explain you have arthritis, a bulging disc, narrow nerve pathways, or a pinched nerve.

 

Avoid Surgery and Drugs With Acupuncture For Back Pain

 

Remember surgery is permanent. Something is being cut away and something is being replaced. Some people are allergic to the metals used in fusions or disc replacements. Others find the scar tissue to be pulling and stiff limiting their function and mobility. There’s no question that back surgery will limit movement. Find out more before you “go under the knife.”

The media is filled with the opioid epidemic and other addictive drug use to treat pain. Put plainly drugs are not a fix or option. They cover up the pain until you must take more to relieve your aching. Even over the counter pills cause digestion issues and require increasing the dose if you keep using them long-term.

There are few natural cures for pain. Acupuncture is and will remain rated number one. Because it works with the whole body and treats muscle pain or other soft tissue pain it doesn’t matter if your problem stems from structural problems. It keeps your tissue healthy giving you movement and freedom.

Acupuncture for back pain may not cure your problem. It will give you the highest level of movement, freedom and pain relief naturally.

Back Pain Relief

 

One of the reasons I specialize in Orthopedic acupuncture for back pain is everyone will experience pain sometime in their lives. Back pain is number one. Most clients I see come in worried they’re going to need surgery or a life of addictive drugs and want to avoid these options.

 

Yet, there are those who have no idea that you don’t have to have surgery or go on drugs!

Here’s how it works. If you hurt someplace in your body that is a muscle, joint, or ligament chances are acupuncture is your best option. Why?  Because these are called soft-tissues.

 

The Soft Tissue Connection

 

Your outer body beneath your skin is all soft tissue and in illness like Chronic Fatigue or Fibromyalgia pain moves all over you like storm clouds in the sky on a rainy day. This is in the soft tissue and can feel bone deep. Acupuncture for Auto Immune disease can keep you move and live life almost pain free.

In turn, we use our bodies and thus there’s wear and tear on muscles and the bones. This is called aging or being active.

Soft tissues like tendons connect to the bone and the muscle/ligaments. This is a vast network or connection and pain can get fixed in the area. It starts in or actually can show up down the connection.
