How Proper Acupuncture Treatment Reduces Chironic Low Back Pain

How Proper Acupuncture Treatment Reduces Chronic Low Back Pain

Low Back Pain

There is little doubt in the scientific community that proper acupuncture treatment will significantly reduce the chronic low back pain that a great many people will suffer from in their lifetimes.

How Proper Acupuncture Compares to Sham Treatment

There have been many studies that have validated the effectiveness of proper acupuncture treatments to relieve chronic low back pain. One of the concerns that some have expressed is whether acupuncture works because of the treatment itself or the very idea that it will relieve the pain. The power of belief is such that many types of sham treatments may be perceived to work on relieving pain. Therefore to study the true effects of acupuncture a study was created that took into account sham treatments and their potential effect.

This study lasted three months and consisted of 130 adults from the ages of 18 up to 65 years old. They received real acupuncture treatments or sham treatments twice a week for a period that lasted more than six weeks. The treatments were scored on a scale that included the intensity of the pain, the overall health status of the patient and any secondary outcomes from the treatments as prescribed. The adults involved in the study were divided into two separate groups with one receiving the real acupuncture treatment while the other only had the sham treatments.

The Results of the Study

The results of the study were fascinating in that the initial observations of each group showed no difference except in one indicator. However, when it came to the long term freedom from the chronic low back pain the results were significantly different as the group that experienced the actual acupuncture treatment enjoyed far less pain and discomfort over time.

This randomized trial strongly suggests that real acupuncture treatment does have a powerful effect on the body that goes beyond the belief system in the mind. The sham treatments may have had an initial effect, but the long term result was really no improvement at all in the pain that they had felt while the group that experienced the real acupuncture treatment did enjoy the results.

While the belief system is certainly powerful, it can only go so far in terms of bringing relief to people who are suffering from chronic pain in their low back area. Proper acupuncture treatment offers real, sustainable results that have helped people around the world in handling the pain and discomfort that comes from chronic pain in the back.

Study Shows Acupuncture Effective for Treating Chronic Low Back Pain


Low back pain treatment hamilton, New Zealand


When you consider that nearly 80% of all people will have low back pain during some portion of their lives, it is not surprising that it is one of the most common reasons for people to find medical treatment. Chronic low back pain is also one of the main reasons why people seek acupuncture treatment.

Over the years, a number of studies have been done to determine if acupuncture is effective in relieving low back pain. The results have confirmed that when performed properly, acupuncture is a very effective treatment for most people who suffer from chronic back pain. It is important however to get treatment from certified professionals with a proven track record in successfully treating patients with chronic low back pain.


The Results of an Acupuncture Pain Relief Study

One of the more prominent studies made on the effects that acupuncture has on low back pain was conducted in Germany ClinicOver the course of the treatment, both groups were assigned questionnaires that discussed the effectiveness of the treatment they received, their current quality of life and other health-related questions which was combined with the clinical data that was obtained during the treatment period. The follow-up lasted for three months after the treatment was completed to judge the long-lasting effects.

Of the 143 patients that were divided into two groups of 74 in the test group and 69 in the control group, almost 90% in the test group noted substantial improvement over the course of the treatments that significantly reduced the pain. In fact, roughly 83% stated that they would have paid full price for the acupuncture treatment of their chronic low back pain knowing the results that they had experienced during this study.

Over three months after the treatments had been completed, those in the test group reported significantly better mobility and an overall improvement of their general health combined with a great lessening of the pain felt when sitting, standing, laying down and carrying objects as well. Even the prickling feeling in their hands and feet was greatly reduced.

Overall, the results were typical of those found with many other studies when proper acupuncture treatments were applied. There was a great lessening of the pain that improved the overall health of the patient without any side effects commonly found with surgery and drug therapies.

We put a lot of stress on our backs and with many people having poor posture and high-intensity lifestyles it’s no surprise that back injuries are common. Lower back pain can be triggered by pregnancy, when there is increased pressure on the back. It is also common for lower back pain to be caused by injury, such as by lifting a heavy object. But it is just as common that people can end up with lower back pain simply through sitting for long periods of time. Maybe you have simply bent to pick up a pencil and on straightening have experienced severe lower back pain. However the pain is caused, it can make everyday activities difficult or impossible. Even sleeping may be difficult due to the inability to get into a comfortable position to sleep, and because of constant pain.

If you have been suffering from lower back pain for some time, you may have tried various therapies to try to relieve the pain. Maybe you have tried chiropractic, massage, physiotherapy or even acupuncture.
