Back pain

Back pain is the UK’s leading cause of disability and one of the primary reasons for work-related sickness absence.

Most people will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives.

How acupuncture can help back pain:

Pain relief: Acupuncture stimulates nerves causing the release of endorphins and other chemicals in addition to changing the processing of pain in the brain and spinal cord

Reducing inflammation

Improving muscle stiffness and joint mobility; acupuncture increases local microcirculation

Reduces the use of medication for back complaints

Improves the outcome when added to conventional treatments such as rehabilitation exercise.
