Back pain is the great equalizer – no one is immune! So it’s no surprise that back pain is one of the most common conditions we treat. If your back hurts, the best back pain treatment available is acupuncture.
Acute back pain is the type of pain you get from moving a large couch, lifting the refrigerator or forgetting to lift with your legs. Typically one of the muscles in the low back spasms, causing you to double over, walk like you’re ninety years old, and stay home from work for a few days. Acupuncture as a back pain treatment works great for speeding up the healing process, easing the pain immediately, and helping prevent a recurrence in the future.
Chronic back pain is the type of pain you’ve had for more than six months. You often wake up very sore and stiff, with the pain easing slightly with a hot shower and movement (walking). Chronic back pain can be a mild, nagging discomfort (2 out of 10 on a pain scale), but also can be severe (9 out of 10 on a pain scale). Causes can be from nerve impingement, spinal misalignment, chronic muscles spasms, or poor blood circulation, to name a few. In most cases acupuncture can resolve this pain by addressing the root issue responsible for the chronic condition. And very often, as back pain treatment proceeds, the patient will feel the pain begin to “unwind” layer by layer, until the pain is completely gone.

What our Clients are Saying
I came to Raleigh Acupuncture. After 1 treatment, my back felt better than it has in a year. I’ve had acupuncture before elsewhere and it has never been this effective.
I went in for a bulging disc in my back and a couple of days after the first treatment I had no pain in my back. Before treatment I had a constant dull pain in the middle of my back when at rest. The treatments were about a week apart and I completed 3 of them. It has been about 3 weeks since I have been and have a slight pain in my back but is nowhere near what it was before I started treatment. Before getting acupuncture I tried chiropractic and felt worse when I was done. For those that are skeptical like me, let me tell you that it works. I would definitely recommend Dr Mark in his ability to help with your pain.
I suffered from low back pain for years and tried many different remedies. When I came to Raleigh Acupuncture, they really listened to understand my issues. I can honestly say that they cured my chronic back pain. I didn’t think it was possible, after all these years. I highly recommend this practice. The doctors take the time and do good work.
