Back Pain – Common Causes

Understanding the underlying cause of back pain always helps us deliver the right kind of treatment.

The most common causes of back pain include muscle or ligament strain, often resulting from heavy lifting or sudden awkward movements. Structural problems, such as herniated discs or spinal stenosis, can also contribute to back pain by putting pressure on nerves.

Increasingly, lifestyle factors like poor posture, lack of exercise, and obesity are also common culprits in the development of chronic back pain.

How Can Acupuncture Help with Back Pain?

  • Acupuncture can contribute to the alleviation of pain, the promotion of relaxation, and the enhancement of overall well-being through the release of endorphins in the body.
  • Back pain acupuncture may help relax the muscles in the back, reducing any muscle tension and stiffness that might be exacerbating any pain or discomfort. Our programs of acupuncture for back pain in London often focus on targeting specific acupuncture points to promote muscle relaxation and improve overall muscle flexibility and function.
  • If pain is caused by injury, it would be wise to consult with a medical professional on options for treatments. However, acupuncture may help reduce inflammation at the site of injury by promoting the release of anti-inflammatory substances and improving blood circulation.

For many back pain cases that come through our doors, such as those stemming from lifestyle and posture issues, we often recommend acupuncture in combination with other treatments like manual therapy and rehabilitation exercises to address the causes of bad posture and encourage better alignment of the muscles and the joints.

Considering Acupuncture for Back Pain

When integrated with other therapies, such as manual therapy, sports massage, and rehabilitation exercises, back acupuncture may be a valuable component of a comprehensive treatment plan for muscle strains and discomfort.

Integrating acupuncture into a comprehensive treatment program can provide a holistic approach to managing pain and promoting the recovery process, following an injury or the gradual onset of back pain due to long-hours of sitting at a desk or other posture-related issues.
