Back Pain: Case Studies

Back Pain: Case Studies

To give you an idea of how acupuncture in Wilmington, N.C. can help back pain, I will tell you about a couple of people that I’ve worked with in the last year. One was an 82 year old man who came to the clinic with severe back pain that he had had for years. The pain clinic could not do any more for him, pain meds no longer worked, and his quality of life was miserable. He was treated with massage, cupping, acupuncture and moxa and over the course of four months, averaging two treatments a month, he improved dramatically. When I saw his wife I asked her how things were going and she said, “Well, we got a load of firewood delivered yesterday and he was out there with the chainsaw cutting up wood.”

Now that’s what I call improvement!

Another case is a woman, aged 56, who came in with severe back pain in the lower right quadrant of her back. She had been suffering for nine months and the pain clinic gave her shots of Demerol and pain meds that didn’t help or fix the problem. She could barely get on the table the first visit. Her pain level on a 1-10 scale was a 9. By the third visit her pain was down to a three and by the fifth visit she was pain free. She has had the occasional “tweak” of back pain, but a quick acupuncture treatment always takes care of it. She now has her life back and is able to go to the gym, work in the yard and take care of her family. She was treated with massage, cupping, acupuncture, and moxa.

So if you or someone you know suffers from back pain, moderate to severe, please send them to Infinity Acupuncture in Wilmington, N.C., where we care enough to use the entire realm of treatment options.
