Acupuncture Helps with Chronic Lower Back Pain in Bremerton WA

Lower back pain is one of the most common types of back pain that people experience because the lower back is under the most pressure and constantly.
It is very well connected and structured for its functionality, that it sacrifices stability and gets injured way too often.

It is actually a very common type of overall pain for which people visit doctors and is faced by everyone at least once in their lifetimes. It usually gets better on its own and doesn’t need any special treatment, but other times, it can require more than just rest and pain killers.

The pain feels like a stabbing, burning, radiating, numb or tingling feeling and can get worse with certain positions and actions.

When the lower back pain continues for longer than 12 weeks or 3 months, then the lower back pain is called chronic lower back pain. Chronic lower back pain (CLBP) usually needs medical exams and tests to tell the true cause of the pain in Bremerton.

Causes of CLBP can be:

  1. Age: wearing down of elements of the spine
  2. Obesity: uneven pressure leading to instability of the spine
  3. Posture: improper posture causes uneven pressure on the spine.
  4. Occupation: Jobs that require heavy lifting or repetitive motions cause too much pressure on the spine and wear down the spinal elements quicker, causing pressure on the nerve and leading to pain.
  5. Health conditions: certain health conditions like diabetes, arthritis, degenerative diseases, cancer, spinal stenosis, etc.
  6. Bulging or herniated discs: the bulge presses down on the nerves, pinching it.
  7. Bone spurs: the extra bone growth can press into nerves.

There are a few cores, back, muscle strengthening exercises, and prevention tips that can prevent or raise resistances to CLBP, but if you get CLBP, it has been persistent for longer than 3 months, in which case, at-home treatments don’t work and OTC pain meds are useless.

Then, you could be suggested prescription meds, muscle relaxants, injections, back braces, and surgeries.

But, meds, injections can be addictive and their invasive nature can make you susceptible to side effects, not suitable for certain people.
Surgeries are expensive, invasive, can have possible side effects and relapses not suitable for some people, and are time-consuming.
Braces are fine but way too time-consuming, especially if the body has low immunity, it takes too long to recover.

This is why acupuncture is a great alternative treatment for CLBP.

Acupuncture can help CLBP as it has the following benefits:

  • It is only very mildly invasive, so it is suitable for people of all ages and most health conditions
  • Resets the central nervous system so it functions better and quicker.
  • Stimulates the body to produce happy hormones and endorphins to induce relaxation and pain relief.
  • It raises the immunity and blood circulation
  • It reduces muscle stiffness and increases mobility
  • Triggers electromagnetic impulses in the body to quicken bodily healing
  • No side effects, non-addictive
  • It is more cost-effective than surgeries
  • It is relaxing and holistic, even when it is a treatment for pain
  • Induces better sleep

Acupuncture has proven benefits for CLBP pain relief and/ or pain management (depending upon the cause) and is a great alternative. So, book an appointment with your nearest licensed acupuncturist now.
