Acupuncture for Low Back Pain

Greetings from Wellman Acupuncture in Cincinnati, Ohio!

People frequently ask me what conditions I see the most.  The answer is low back pain and neck pain.  Everyone seems to have it, and studies are starting to show acupuncture to be the most effective modality in relieving it, leaving conventional methods running behind.  The National Center for Complementary and Alternative method discusses one study which demonstrated acupuncture and acupuncture-like methods to be more effective than conventional methods after 8 weeks of treatment.  Perhaps the next study will indicate which type of acupuncture gets results with fewer treatments; individualized or standardized!
