Can Acupuncture Be Considered An Effective Option To Treat Low Back Pain?by Dr. Attilio D'Alberto Acupuncture & Fertility Expert in London
Acupuncture is an ancient form of treatment option to treat difficulties in body muscles and joints. In modern day, this alternative treatment approach has proved to bring in positive results when treating pain in the lower back regions of the body. Before discussing any further about this process, we must try to understand the common causes of back pain.
What results in back pain?
The most common factors that result in causing pain in and around the lower back region are lumbar strain and sprains in muscles related to the rib cage and spinal cord. If you are lifting heavy weights without proper form, then chances of accumulating injuries and pain around these regions of the body. The lower back region of the body is involved in certain movements like bending and twisting. At the same time, it is also responsible primarily for bearing weights. All these scenarios make the lower back region much vulnerable to pain and injuries. Strain and spasm in the muscles happen when the muscle fibers and tissues get overstretched or torn. The sufferer will experience severe inflammation in the area that’s being affected. This is being accompanied by pain and movement inability. The sufferer will experience decreased range of motion and functionality due to severe muscle spasm and cramping.
Acupuncture is a holistic approach
Acupuncture London clinics regard this alternative treatment process to be a holistic approach but never consider it as the last resort to cure the pain. It is definitely a highly effective procedure to provide relief to the scenario without the chance of any side effects. This traditional treatment procedure primarily works through unblocking and moving the flow of energy within the body through the different functional systems of the body like respiratory, muscular, digestive, circulatory, and nervous systems.

It is extremely effective in providing relief around the neck and low back region and handling chronic pain problems. Pain around the knee joints can be cured through the acupuncture procedure. In fact, it can also help in reducing the impact of migraine headaches and tension headaches.
The working process of Acupuncture
The process works through needling some specific points in the human body to release the naturally producing chemicals to different areas of the body through stimulation of the nervous system. The chemicals being released are endorphins and neurochemicals. The release of these chemicals helps in deteriorating the pain experience and also results in releasing different other hormones and chemicals that play a strong role in influencing the body’s internal regulating system. When considering acupuncture for back pain, it not only offers a certain relief but also results in creating a certain normalizing effect on the nerve and hormone functionality.
Acupuncture helps in improving the balance between the energy and biochemical substances being produced as a result of it, thus stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal while promoting emotional and physical well being.
