How does Acupuncture Treat Back Pain?

Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s own healing system. It is often said that acupuncture is responsible for 20% of the healing and your body is responsible for the other 80%.

Acupuncture incites the body to release pain-relieving endorphins.

Acupuncture moves Qi and Blood in the body to decrease stagnation, stasis and improve circulation in the body.

Back Pain Care and Prevention Exercises

Back stretches, such as bridges and squats, exercise such as light walking, Tai Chi/ Chi gong/ Qi gong, or light Yoga stretches (like “Downward Facing Dog”) and keeping your weight down can all help prevent back pain or avoid re-aggravating the back.

Keeping the lower legs strong with exercises such as squats helps keep a strong foundation for holding up the back muscles.

Walking is great for the back due to the forward/backward swaying motion of the arms and because it can help keep the weight off the waist to reduce stress on the back.

Tai Chi/ Chi Gong and Yoga help avoid back pain by keeping the spine supple, especially if done routinely as we age. Think of Yoga as your oiling can to keep joints lubricated over time.

Back Pain Care and Prevention Tips at Work

Use Stand-up desk or work station, or at least improve the ergonomics.

Always lift with your legs and avoid twisting or awkward movements.

Get up and stretch every 20 minutes to avoid the sitting diseases.
