“For people with chronic low back pain, acupuncture is clearly effective in providing considerable pain relief.” Eric Manheimer
Millions of people suffer with low back pain, and it is one of the top reasons people seek medical treatment. But does acupuncture really help? Researchers from the University of Maryland School of Medicine and the Peninsula Medical School, Plymouth, U.K., analysed dozens of studies from around the world on acupuncture for low back pain. The research shows that acupuncture provided true pain relief. The benefit was not just due to the placebo effect.
The message for people with chronic low back pain is that acupuncture is a truly effective therapy that provides significant pain relief.
The researchers evaluated the effects of acupuncture both in the short-term (defined as three weeks after the last acupuncture treatment) as well as in the longer term. They found acupuncture provided definite pain relief in the short-term, and this relief appeared to be sustained over the longer term.
Acumedica Protocol for Back Pain
We know and understand how debilitating back pain and other pain such as knee, shoulder, neck, ankle and wrist can be. At Acumedica we integrate a number of techniques such as acupuncture, dry needling, musculskeeltal therapy, cupping, heat therapy, transdermal therapy, electro acupuncture, moxa, cranial sacral and muscle energy techniques to ensure you receive a considerable reduction in pain with an increased range of movement over time.
We have developed this technique alongside nutritional and dietary supplemental recommendations to ensure you receive maximum relief from your aches and pains. Our Protocol is based on research along with our many years of experience in treating and alleviating pain.
We recommended a course of treatments based on your medical history along with some lifestyle modifications to further alleviate your pain and improve range of movement. As everyone responds differently your course of treatments and frequency are based on how your condition improves between treatments.
