Getting acupuncture treatment for lower back pain is an option that many individuals choose, often after traditional methods of treating lower back pain failed to provide satisfactory pain relief. Our Seitai Acupuncture professional acupuncturists realize the frustration some people feel after failed attempts at relieving low back pain through over-the-counter or prescription medications.
Does Acupuncture Really Work For Treating Lower Back Pain?
Several studies point to the fact that acupuncture for lower back pain is often a very effective method of relieving pain, especially where other methods fail to produce results.
An article published in Acupuncture Today discusses a study where researchers concluded that a group of study participants receiving acupuncture treatment reported significant differences in their lower back pain at one month, three and six months intervals after treatments, compared to participants receiving placebo treatments. Several participants previously on sick leave returned to work and others returned to daily activities enjoyed before experiencing chronic low back pain.
In a 2011 News in Health article, the monthly newsletter published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dr. Richard L. Nahin, from the NIH National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine reported that multiple “Well-designed” studies show that acupuncture does potentially help individuals with chronic conditions, one of which is lower back pain. He said that when researchers compare individuals receiving usual care to individuals receiving acupuncture that the acupuncture group “Almost always does better.”
