Acupuncture is a valuable treatment for chronic pain from the head to toes (No 5 low back pain)

95% of back pain occurs in the lower back. Lower back area is bordered by the bottom of the rib cage and the buttock creases. If you have lower back pain, you are not alone. About 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes. At most of the time there is no cause found known as non-specific low back pain. The pain can be from mild to severe, from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain in the lower back region. Acute low back pain is short term which lasts a few days to a few weeks. Chronic low back pain persists for 12 weeks or longer. About 20 percent of people affected by acute low back pain develop chronic low back pain with persistent symptoms at one year. Low back pain affects people’s life greatly in recent years. A study ranking the most burdensome condition, low back pain jumped to the third place in 10 years’ time in 2010 from the sixth in 1990, with only ischemic heart disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ranking higher. Non-specific low back pain presents burning or stabbing pain, tension, soreness, stiffness in the low back area, but it can be also shooting pain to the legs or up to the back or forward to the abdomen. Other symptoms can associate with low back pain such as abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, diarrhea etc. The pain is persistent or recurrent. Joints, discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascias in the back may contribute to symptoms.

Acupuncture is a valuable treatment for low back pain.
