How Acupuncture Can Heal Back Pain and Herniated Disc?

shares |

Chronic pain is a debilitating force that  robs you of your quality of life. Traditional pain medication, including  prescription pain medication, often has undesirable side effects, and because  it does not aid the body in healing, the condition causing the pain is not  addressed, so the pain worsens. Over time it takes more and more medication,  with diminished results.

How Acupuncture Can Heal Back Pain and Herniated Disc?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing modality  that originated in China. It is gaining acceptance in Western medicine because  of its verified effectiveness at supporting the body’s healing ability, and  managing chronic pain.

How  Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is based on the principle that  life force (called Chi) travels through the body in identifiable patterns, via  specific channels. Disease and pain occur when this vital energy is blocked.
Through centuries of practice,  acupuncturists have identified over 300 points in the body where this energy  flow can be accessed and restored to balance.

By gently inserting very fine  needles at the correct strategic points, practitioners are able to release these  blocks and restore the body to a state of balance.

Once this is accomplished, the body is able  to heal itself more effectively, consequently reducing pain and improving the  underlying condition, without the complications of surgery, or the side effects  of pain medication.

What  Should I expect During an Acupuncture Session for Back Pain?

You will be asked to lie down in a position  that gives the practitioner access to the intended area. For back pain due to  herniated disc, you will probably lie face down, but this may vary according to  the preference of the healer.

The acupuncturist will insert a number of fine  needles into the pressure points associated with herniated disc back pain. Most  patients do not experience a sharp stabbing pain, but may experience an itching  sensation, or a deep aching sensation.

The needles may be left in place for a  varying period of time, but generally the time frame is about 20 minutes. Once  the treatment is completed, the needles are removed and you are able to go  about your day without need for recuperation, and with few side effects, if  any.

How  many sessions will it take?

The number of sessions required will be  determined by your condition. Most patients undergo around 12 sessions on  either a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
