At Fort Collins Acupuncture, I have been treating patients using acupuncture for 15 years. The number one ailment I see people for is pain management. And the top of that category, the most painful thing people want acupuncture for is back pain. And it's no wonder!
Your back muscles are involved in nearly every movement you make. Typing, walking, turning over in bed, driving (Lord help you if you drive a stick shift), bending, even laughing... when your back hurts all those regular activities can be a misery.
Acupuncture really can help. Acupuncture has been scientifically proven effective for many conditions including headaches, migraines, neck and lumbar problems, arthritis, and sports injuries. This New York Times blog reviews a recent meta-analysis of radomized acupuncture studies. Thirty doctors analyzed the raw data from 29 high-quality acupuncture medical studies. The lead author, Dr. Andrew J. Vickers from Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, summarizes the conclusion, “We think there’s firm evidence supporting acupuncture for the treatment of chronic pain.”
