Thrive Acupuncture provides answers to back pain
Why does my back hurt?
Back pain is a common problem that can range from a dull ache to sharp pain. Regardless of its origin, back pain is actually only a symptom of an underlying medical condition and not the entire diagnosis itself.
Sources of back pain include:
- Physical motor problems: Spinal irregularities, disc degeneration, spasms, muscle tension, ruptured and herniated discs.
- Injuries: Sprains, fractures or tears in ligaments; osteoporosis or injuries due to falls, heavy lifting, or more serious accidents.
- Disease or chronic conditions: Scoliosis, several forms of arthritis, kidney stones, fibromyalgia, problems as a result of pregnancy, pain as a result of tumors
An unnecessary burden.
Recent studies conducted by various journals in the study of pain management have concluded that an estimated 80% of the world’s population suffers from some form of back pain and that acupuncture is an effective method for pain relief without the negative side effects associated with more conventional therapies.
