Is walking, sitting, or standing difficult?
Low back pain means pain in the lower lumbar, lumbosacral, or sacroiliac regions. Often, it is accompanied by pain radiating down buttocks and legs. Low back pain is one of the most frequent reasons for staying home from work.
Low back pain may be either acute or chronic. It can be simply annoying or irritating or it can produce unbearable physical and emotional suffering. Acupuncture reduces pain and inflammation. The National Institute of Health states that acupuncture may be useful as an adjunct treatment or an acceptable alternative or be included in a comprehensive management program.
Patients typically notice a significant improvement after 3 to 6 visits. If your pain is chronic, additional treatments will ensure further improvement.
Patient Testimonial 1
I had suffered from moderate to severe pain and stiffness in my neck and lower back for some time. I was very pleasantly surprised with the results of my first treatment as the pain relief was almost immediate. Not only did each subsequent visit aid in further alleviating the ache in my neck and back, it promoted a sense of well being and reduction of stress. I have been extremely satisfied with the results of these treatments and give acupuncture a resounding endorsement. Bob K.

Before I started acupuncture therapy with Dr. Lee I experienced a great deal of pain in my lower back. I was taking large doses of pain medications. After 5 sessions of acupuncture I am almost free of all pain in my back and have stopped taking pain medication. It’s a miracle. Linda Mann

I was very surprised that my lower back and knee pain were also getting better. Often, I forget to use a cane and people at meetings are surprised that I am walking around without a cane. Florence B. Age 84
