Acupuncture for back pain

Conscious Health & Wellness Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine

acupuncture treatments for back pain

Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of upper, middle and lower back pain.  Relief from pain will be felt immediately upon the insertion of needles and will likely require several follow-up appointments to achieve optimal relief.

Some people with Chronic pain are fearful of Acupuncture needles in their back due to trauma from surgery and other procedures- Miriam does not place the needles in the back, but rather in the arms and legs to treat the back.   

Frequently Asked Questions About Acupuncture Treatments

 

“Do the needles hurt?”

Acupuncture needles are extremely thin, about the thickness of two of the hairs on your head. The needles are sterile and disposable. Some people feel nothing when a needle is inserted. Others feel a light ache or tingling sensation, which often dissipates within minutes of insertion.

“What can I expect?”

During each treatment you will have the opportunity to discuss your health concerns and goals for treatment. Your initial consultation will be about 2 hours at which Miriam takes a thorough medical and social history and discusses with you a plan for treatment. This also includes an acupuncture treatment. Each additional appointment will be 1 hour and will consist of a consultation and acupuncture treatment.
