Does your back hurt? Do you wake up in the morning feeling stiff in your lower back? Does it keep you from exercising, for fear that it will get worse? Or maybe it’s more than stiffness.

Denver Tech Center Acupuncture Back Pain Treatment – How It Works
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to resolve pain. Chinese medicine sees the body differently than Western medicine. We recognize pathways, called channels, running all through the body. A substance called Qi (pronounced Chi) flows within these channels.
Pain occurs when Qi flow is blocked in the channels. Acupuncture restores the free flow of Qi. Imagine a beaver dam blocking a stream. Water backs up, forming a pool, restricting the natural flow of water. Remove the dam and the water’s flow is restored. Acupuncture removes the blockage of Qi that causes pain, restoring free flow of Qi, allowing for healing of injured muscles.
Chronic back soreness comes from a combination of Qi blocked in the channels and Kidney weakness. In Chinese medicine kidneys nourish the low back. Having kidney weakness does not mean your actual kidneys are damaged. But by strengthening your “Chinese” kidneys with acupuncture, chronic low back soreness can be resolved.
Severe back pain is a little different. In involves Qi stagnation, kidney weakness and something called blood stasis. Acupuncture uses specific techniques to resolve this combination of imbalances, resolving back pain in the process.
