Back pain is extremely common and treatable.
Back pain can range from muscle aching to a shooting, burning, or stabbing sensation. Pain may radiate down your leg or worsen with bending, twisting, lifting, standing, or walking.
It is important to take care of any back pain to maintain the longevity and integrity of your spine.
Back pain may be caused by muscle or ligament strain. Heavy lifting or sudden awkward movements can also strain back muscles and spinal ligaments. Pain in the back may also be caused by bulging or ruptured discs. Discs act as cushions between bones in your spine. As we age, the discs lose height and fluid.
Symptoms may include back pain that worsens with movement, spasms in the back muscles, weakness and numbness in the legs, knees, and ankles, decreased bladder and bowel control, difficulty walking, sciatica, and reduced coordination. The spine is connected to your central nervous system and your immune system. With our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system, nourish hormones, balance emotions, along with improving energy and blood flow.
At Acupuncture Wellness Services, we use a combination of modalities and techniques to regulate the flow of energy in the body to achieve outstanding results. The extensive training and experience of our practitioners enables them to successfully blend time-tested and ancient treatment protocols with modern and sophisticated therapies. One of the greatest benefits of our procedure is the ability to detect and correct energetic sensitivities to foods and the environment that might be creating symptoms in your body. Each patient is treated individually, and so the combination of techniques is determined at the time of evaluation. Our treatments integrate well with western medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, occupational therapy, dental work and nutritional healing.
