You're Not Alone

You have lower back pain? Don't feel like the Lone Ranger! About 80% of adults will experience lower back pain at some time in their life. In any given month, somewhere between 35% and 37% of the general population experiences lower back pain. So, you're not alone.

Why choose chiropractic treatment for lower back pain? Two reasons:

  1. A UCLA study showed that chiropractic care of lower back pain has a higher rate of patient satisfaction than medical care.
  2. Additionally, studies by Mea de have indicated long term benefit in the treatment of lower back pain with Chiropractic.

Acupuncture for lower back pain

Acupuncture is often effective in treating lower back pain through stimulation of Acupoints (spots of the body that have two-way communication with another part of the body).

  1. Many of the Acupoints relating to lower back pain are located on the bladder meridian (located on the back of the leg).
  2. The bladder meridian on the back of the knee is one of the most powerful points to relax the muscles in the lower back.

A typical acupuncture treatment for lower back pain involves the use of about 30-40 needles that are inserted less than 1/4″ into the skin in the back legs and arm. The ear also contains many powerful Acupoints for back pain. Usually the ear is treated with combination of electrical stimulation and acupatches.

  • Electrical stimulation is often effective when combined with needle acupuncture in the lower back. A typical plan of care for lower back pain is about 5 visits over a two week period.
