Muscular Back Pain
Our long working hours, for many people this involves hours spent on a computer, driving, or long hours standing. All can have a negative impact on our back, neck and shoulder muscles. Daily stress is often found on the shoulders!
When treating muscular back pain, we take into account the lifestyle, diet, and posture of the individual. A combination of acupuncture, massage and Chinese cupping is used.
It is recommended that each individual visits their GP if they are suffering with suspected disc, sciatic nerve pain. It is much easier to treat back/disc problems when a full diagnosis has been given. This is usually done through x-rays/MRI scans, GP referral to a consultant is necessary.
Acupuncture not only relieves back pain, but over time strengthens the back, and core muscles. Massage is recommended to keep the back supple and pain free.Sciatica responds very well to acupuncture.
Wear and tear of the cervical spine (neck), osteoporosis, osteoarthritus, all benefit from acupuncture, although these conditions can not be cured, maintenance and pain management is very important to the sufferer.
