Denver Acupuncture Back Pain Treatment: How It Works
Back pain is one of the most common conditions we treat with acupuncture. The Denver Acupuncture back pain treatment addresses all of the following back pain conditions. Acute back pain responds well to acupuncture. This is the type of pain you get from moving a large couch, lifting the refrigerator or forgetting to lift with your legs. Typically one of the muscles in the low back spasms, causing you to double over, walk like you’re ninety years old, and stay home from work for a few days. Acupuncture speeds up the healing process, eases the pain immediately, and helps prevent a recurrence in the future.
Chronic back pain is the type of pain you’ve had for more than six months. You often wake up very sore and stiff, with the pain easing slightly with a hot shower and movement (walking). Chronic back pain can be a mild, nagging discomfort (2 out of 10 on a pain scale), but also can be severe (9 out of 10 on a pain scale). Causes can be from nerve impingement, spinal misalignment, chronic muscles spasms, or poor blood circulation, to name a few. In most cases acupuncture can resolve this pain by addressing the root issue responsible for the chronic condition. And very often, as treatment proceeds, the patient will feel the pain begin to “unwind” layer by layer, until the pain is completely gone.
Denver Acupuncture Back Pain Treatment: What To Expect
We resolve back pain in the low back, mid and upper back, neck and shoulders on the back of the body, and along the sides of the back. We also successfully treat back pain from tightness in the small muscles between the ribs (intercostals). This is a pain that gets worse when you take deep breaths. As always, treatments are relaxing and painless. Patients often fall asleep during treatment. You don’t have to live with back pain. Try the Denver Acupuncture Back Pain Treatment today!
