Has anyone tried acupuncture for lower back pain relief? Did it work?
I'm starting acupuncture & massage therapy next week for my chronic back pain.
When I worked at a state WC rehabilitation center in the early 1990s, several back pain patients reported a lot of relief when they tried acupuncture. Some had no relief. Acupressure and stretching also helped a number of them. The same was true in my martial arts classes; acupressure worked wonders.
I have not. I would be for it if you have chronic pain. I found that with years of back and neck pain that the #1 issue asside from the injury is stress. The anxiety of the back pain tends to extend the healing time. If you can elliminate as much stress as possible the nerves tend to relax. That was the case in my past pain. This may sound funny but honestly ever tried the Tiger Balm patch? Thats what I use to stimulate and assist in healing. And if practical for you swimming speeds it up the best for me. :-)
Accupuncture is often great for chronic pain, however, I don't believe it will physiologically change anything. Therefore, I think some hands on treatment and exercise are a must. All those together should provide some relief.
