It is said that 4 out of 5 people will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. This is a common condition that brings many patients to the clinic. Acupuncture can be very effective to relieve not only the cycle of pain that many experience, but also helps to reduce the amount and frequency of pain medications that are taken to manage the pain. Physical activity can often be increased after treatment as well, facilitating the flow of healing energy into the affected area. Both acute and chronic conditions can be treated with acupuncture and herbs.
