Low back pain is one of the most common problems seen in the United States. Statistics show that about 150 million Americans suffer from acute or chronic low back pain.
The National Institute of Health states that back pain is one of the most frequent medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives.
Common causes of low back pain include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise and overuse. Other causes include arthritis, fracture, degeneration, and herniated discs.
Medications are commonly used to manage low back pain, but over the counter and prescription medications have been shown to provide limited relief and also have unwanted side effects, often quite severe.
Clinical trials consistently show that acupuncture is effective in treating back pain, especially for patients with chronic pain or who have failed to get an optimal response to more conventional therapies such as medications or physical therapy.
Research has confirmed what ancient acupuncturists knew for over 2000 years, that acupuncture is effective for conditions like chronic low back pain. In fact, the American College of Physicians issued a strong recommendation of using acupuncture as a first line therapy for treatment of low back pain.
All of our acupuncturists at Modern Acupuncture have a Masters or Doctorate degree and over 1600 hours of classroom and clinical experience; accounting for over 3-5 years of training.
