Acupuncture is effective against back pain

Acupuncture provides an effective solution against backache.

Regardless of whether your back pain is acute, intermittent, throbbing, stabbing, fixed or mobile with cold, warmth, heaviness or weight sensations, it can be effectively treated with acupuncture in the overwhelming majority of cases.

Acupuncture is also effective in cases of chronic lower back pain with or without sciatica (excluding surgical indication) and can significantly reduce analgesic and anti-inflammatory medication.

German researchers performed a large scale clinical study with over 11 600 patients. After three months, nearly 53% of participants treated with acupuncture responded positively to treatment.

Six months after the beginning of treatment, a similar proportion of participants still felt the benefits.

Treatment frequency is determined by the physician according to patients' requirements.
