You may not know it, but your lower back pain could be caused by a sick immune system, which can block the proper absorption of nutrients and prevent your body from healing. But, that’s not where the story ends.
We can improve your overall health and heal your back pain at the same time.
Recently, researchers in a double-blind, randomized controlled trial of 1162 patients found that treating lower back pain with acupuncture resulted in 50% more improvement than a combination of medication, physical therapy, and exercise. And researchers observed these results for at least six months after treatment.
There’s a reason why the American Academy of Family Physicians recommends, in its Clinical Practice Guideline, the use of acupuncture, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and tai chi as nonpharmacological treatments for low back pain!
