Back pain! One of the worst things to happen to people, but one of the most common, is when someone “throws their back out”. The pain can be excruciating and make life unbearable. The typical treatment when you go to your doctor is to get medication in the form of pain pills and muscle relaxers. This may help temporarily but it doesn’t solve the underlying problem.
At Infinity Acupuncture, we look at back pain a bit differently. How the pain started, the type of pain, (is it sharp, stabbing, dull, achy?), how long you’ve had it and where the pain is will help determine the type of treatment you need. Not all back pain is created equally and looking at everything that is going on within your body will help with your diagnosis. .
Depending on your situation, you may receive massage first, some cupping to release stagnation and pain, then the acupuncture itself along with some moxa. I have found that a combination of treatment strategies is often the best defense against back pain and have had some amazing results!
If you suffer from back pain, please come and get some acupuncture at Infinity Acupuncture in Wilmington, N.C. Your body (and your back!) will thank you!
