Q: I have really bad back pain and my doctor says it’s sciatica – can acupuncture help me?
A: Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for many types of back pain. I have extensive experience with the treatment of back pain as it constitutes more than fifty percent of my practice. As evidenced by modern clinical studies, acupuncture treatment of pain works to dramatically reduce inflammation, encourage correct nerve conduction and improve blood circulation to the affected areas which results in reduced pain. The goal with treatment is a permanent reduction or elimination of pain and most patients achieve excellent long-term results.
