Whether your low back pain is caused by muscle spasms, disc disease, nerve irritation, arthritis, or pregnancy, acupuncture and massage therapy are effective treatments to help manage your pain. In many clinical studies, acupuncture has been shown to reduce local inflammation of muscle tissue, promote blood circulation and tissue repair to injured areas.
Acupuncture also induces your body into releasing natural opioids, or pain killers, to reduce pain. Your acupuncture treatments and massage sessions will be customized to your specific needs depending on your condition. Once your pain has been reduced, an exercise, strengthening and stretching program may be implemented.
