Back pain is one of the most common conditions seen in the clinic. It can be chronic or acute, most of them can be resolved by natural treatment, without the need for pain killers or surgery. It often treated with acupuncture combined with acupressure, cupping therapy or herbal medicine.

    Acute back pain includes: severe pain, tingling, or numbness in a leg, restricted movement, muscle spasm. It is usually triggered by lifting a heavy weight, a sudden heavy strain in the back, pinched nerves, misaligned spine or sports injury. The combined treatment of acupuncture, TuiNa with spinal assessment is necessary in order to relieve pain, treat the underlying issues, restore mobility and muscle function.

    Chronic back pain may be caused by habitual poor posture, stress, long time sitting, joint dysfunction or muscle spasm, prolapsed disc or degenerative disease. The treatment may combine with the use of acupuncture, acupressure, cupping therapy or herbal medicine to achieve the best results.

    In the clinic, we can deliver a comprehensive service for back pain. With acupuncture, TuiNa, cupping therapy, spinal alignment or herbal medicine, we aim to provide safe, effective and gentle treatment of back pain, often reducing pain and increasing mobility in just a few sessions.

    To achieve lasting benefit from the treatment we aim to deal with the cause of the problem as well as the symptoms. For example, a painful lower back may be caused by a restricted ankle joint. Neck and arm pain may be caused by a poor working position hunched over a computer.
