Acupuncture for Back Pain Relief

Conventional medicine will prescribe of analgesic drugs for your pain. Often the body becomes immune to the effects of one type of pill, a more intense dose of something stronger will be prescribed and so a spiralling downward cycle ensues.

Using the Balance method as taught by Dr Richard Tan, patients often get instant relieve from pain.

Patient’s Story

Antonia shuffled into my clinic after gently easing herself out of her husband’s car. She had been suffering with back pain for about a week and was unable to do the basic things for herself, even though she had dosed herself with strong painkillers prescribed for by her GP.

She tentatively sat down in a chair, the agony on her face.  After a consultation I applied acupuncture needles in her extremities – that’s the beauty of the Balance method the patients can be treated without lying down. I then got her to stand up and gently move around, much to her dismay, but she was able to move around with much less pain.

Her words to me were, “ If only I had come sooner.

She needed a few more treatments, but was able to return to work a few days later.

Research has shown that acupuncture provides pain relief by stimulating nerves. This releases pain-killing endorphins and changes the processing of pain in the brain and spinal cord. Acupuncture is also thought to reduce inflammation and promote healing. In recognition of the benefits of acupuncture for providing pain relief, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) issued guidelines in May 2009 recommending that acupuncture is available on the NHS for chronic lower back pain.
