Chronic pain is classed as pain that can last from weeks to years. It is largely caused by inflammation and dysfunctional nerves, and can severely impact a person’s day to day life. The lower back is a common location of chronic pain in the body, and incidentally is one of the most common locations for people seeking chronic pain treatment. At Melbourne Acupuncture & Wellness Centre, we can provide Chinese Medicine and acupuncture for chronic back pain and other types of chronic pain.
Chronic back pain can leave you immobile and debilitated for long periods of time, with a significantly lessened quality of life. Melbourne Acupuncture & Wellness Centre offers acupuncture for chronic pain that aims to improve quality of life by reducing back pain. We place needles in vital pressure points. When activated, these acupressure points may release natural pain killing chemicals into the body to reduce pain.
When it comes to how many sessions you will need, it will depend on the severity, the duration of your symptoms and your body’s response to the treatment. For example, acupuncture for chronic back pain may require more sessions than Melbourne acupuncture for sciatica nerve pain relief.
The severity of pain will often determine how frequently a patient undergoes chronic pain treatment. We will suggest a suitable treatment plan for you in your initial consultation.
If you’re experiencing chronic pain, acupuncture and Chinese Medicine may be able to assist your condition. However, there are no guarantees, as each individual will respond differently.
