Chronic pain is classed as pain that can last from weeks to years. It usually cannot be completely cured, but treatment can help to significantly reduce the severity. It is largely caused by inflammation and dysfunctional nerves, and can severely impact a person’s day to day life. The lower back is one of the most common locations of chronic pain in the body, and incidentally is the most common location for people seeking chronic pain treatment. Melbourne Acupuncture Wellness provides acupuncture for chronic back pain, with the aim to give patients an improved quality of life. Make an appointment today to find out how we can help you.
As the leading reason for people seeking acupuncture treatment, chronic back pain can leave people immobile and debilitated for long periods of time, with a significantly lessened quality of life. Melbourne Acupuncture Wellness provides treatment to improve quality of life, placing needles in vital pressure points such as the stomach point (located two fingers away from the navel), the lower back point (between the second and third vertebrae from the bottom of your spine), hipbone points, the backs of the knees, and the hand points (the flesh between the thumbs and index fingers). When activated, these acupressure points release natural pain killing chemicals into the body and reduce the severity of lower back pain.
According to the US National Institute of Health (NIH), acupuncture can be particularly useful for treating the likes of back and neck pain, osteoarthritis and migraines. The severity of pain will often determine how frequently a patient undergoes treatment; it could be anything from five times a week to once a month that allows a person to enjoy a positive quality of life.
