How Does Acupuncture Help With Low Back Pain?

Acupuncture is a powerful treatment that changes how your body responds to pain and reduces the debilitating effects, and encourages nerve regeneration. By improving blood flow to painful areas in the back, healing can occur more rapidly.

With every single body varying, different lengths of treatment may be needed to relieve pain, but are almost always more cost-effective than surgery.

One study shows that standard acupuncture applies for lumbar strain had a total effective rate of 87.1%. Our goal with our back pain health program is to reduce pain frequency, reduce intensity, increase range of motion, and improve the quality of your life.

“Treatment after treatment, I was just really amazed how the blood flowing really changes everything. I’ve had more energy, been able to complete tasks, and made some changes as well in my life.”
“It helped a great deal. My pain is not near as bad as it was when I started still a little bit but not near as bad as it was. It seems like I have a lot more energy than I did when I started.”
“Well that pain in my foot’s gone completely away, my back and neck pain is almost completely gone. Plus I’m actually getting a little sleep at night which is unusual because I haven’t slept for many years.”
“Since I received acupuncture I’m actually able to move my neck even after the surgery was not as successful as I had hoped. With the acupuncture it actually allows me to move my neck pain free for the most part. I can do things around the house now that I couldn’t before. I was blessed to have my son come visit to being able to play with him and be active with him was awesome.”
“After being wounded in Iraq I suffered from severe neck and back pain. Pain shooting down my legs and I was on a pretty strong narcotic support and really limited my activity but after my first week of treatment I didn’t need my medicine anymore, my activities are through the roof now.”
“Every time I leave at least for a few days my pain is gone and then just in time I get another appointment.”
“Acupuncture has helped a lot. I can bend more, I can do more things around the house, and I can get in and out of my car a lot better than I could before. I already have (recommended Augusta) but they’re just afraid to come.”
“When I came, I thought there were no answers for me. I think my biggest fear was, I would never be able to use my legs again. I would never feel strong again. I’m able to walk now, 3 miles. The pain that I’ve had, which I never thought I would get rid of in my back and my hip area is now improved, I would say at least 60 -75%. I have and always will recommend Augusta Acupuncture Clinic.”
“Acupuncture has probably cut my pain level in half across the board and I see significant improvement in my quality of life and the things I can do day-to-day. It has allowed me to do physical activities that I was backing off of because of the pain. It has allowed me to sleep better, not having to deal with the stiffness and pain to the level I was prior to acupuncture.”
“Since I started coming here, I’ve been able to sleep better. I’ve been dealing with this for 10 years now, and this is the first time I’ve actually gotten some legitimate pain relief. I’m getting more restful amounts of sleep, I’m waking up feeling more energized, and I’m actually not in as much pain. Dr. Sherrell knows exactly what he’s doing, he’s a good guy.”
“Acupuncture has given me the ability to walk without pain a little more. It has improved my situation. I am able to walk more, and start an exercise program. I would recommend it to anyone. I used to have daily headaches but I have only had one in two months since I started acupuncture.”
“I think the value of acupuncture is in its holistic approach to healthcare. Really helping the body to heal itself. I know in my case my sciatic pain has greatly decreased. I’ve got far better range of motion in my shoulder and I’m sleeping much better now.”
“It has improved my lower back pain significantly and the anxiety has come less often than usual. I am able to walk around more, because I used to not be able to walk around a lot because of my back pain. So I am able to do a lot more with the kids. I sleep better because I don’t wake up in the middle of the night with anxiety attacks.”
