Acupuncture for Low Back Pain
One of the biggest complaints from most patients is low back pain.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), low back pain is caused by several factors:
- Posture while sitting, lifting, or standing.
- Stagnation of Qi and blood flow
- Kidney deficiency
- Cold dampness (low back pain is alleviated by warmth)
- Damp heat (Low back feels inflamed and hot. Alleviates with cold)
Acupuncture has been proven to be beneficial for treating back pain. It allows the stiff, tense muscles in the low back area to relax. This alleviates the agonizing back pain you have been feeling and restores the range of motion.
Acupuncture, trigger point therapy, exercises and recommended stretches are all treatments and techniques Dr. Oyarce uses to treat low back pain.
