Acupuncture for Back Pain

Back pain affects more than 1.1 million people in the UK, acupuncture can help by:


Providing pain relief by stimulating nerves located in muscular and connective tissue acupuncture leads to a release of endorphins and other neurohumoral factors, this brings about changes in the way pain is processed by the spinal cord and brain.

Reducing inflammation by promoting the release of vascular and immunomodulatory factors.


Relief of muscular stiffness and improving joint mobility by increasing local micro circulation, which aids the dispersal of swelling and bruising.

Reduces the use of medication. Patients can usually start to reduce pain medication after a few sessions

Improving outcome when added to conventional treatments such as rehabilitation exercises.


Regulates and re balances the health of the fascia.

Traditional Acupuncture has been researched thoroughly and has been found to be a very effective treatment for back pain .

Treatment may involve the use of massage techniques, moxibustion (application of warming herbs),

electroacupuncture and cupping as well as neeldling.

You will also be given exercises to do to suit your particular problem.
