Acupuncture for Back Pain

Treatments with acupuncture has a relaxing, calming and tranquilising effect that is especially helpful for people suffering from stress.

A study conducted at Sheffield University showed that people receiving acupuncture had reduced pain compared to those receiving usual care.

It was found that after one year people receiving acupuncture had reduced pain and reported a significant reduction in concerns about their pain compared to the group receiving usual care.

After two years, the acupuncture group was significantly more likely to report that the past year had been pain-free and were less likely to use medication for pain relief.

How does Acupuncture work?

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine disposable needles at named acupuncture points. The aim of the insertion is to encourage the circulation of blood and qi (vital energy) diffusing waste products created by the body, which may accumulate in muscle tissue causing stiffness and stagnation of blood. This creates abnormal pressure on nerves, lymph nodes and blood vessels which adversely affects the functions of the skeletal system and internal organs, causing pain and ill health.

How does acupuncture work for back pain?

According to Western science acupuncture releases natural pain-relieving opioids, sends signals that calm the sympathetic nervous system, and releases neurochemicals and hormones.

According to traditional Chinese medicine, pain results from blocked qi in meridian pathways of the body, which are unblocked when acupuncture needles are inserted, easing the pain.
