Low Back Pain Natural Treatment

We offer excellent acupuncture treatments for low back pain and sciatic symptoms. “Does acupuncture work for low back pain or sciatica?” This is one of the most common questions people ask when they call to find out about acupuncture. And my favorite one to answer. I’ve successfully treated hundreds of people with low back pain and symptoms of sciatica using Dr. Tan and Master Tung acupuncture treatment with outstanding results! Most of my patients report a reduction in their low back pain and sciatica symptoms within 5-7 treatments or less. Results are often seen on your very 1st visit!


Low back pain affects most of us at some point in our lives. In fact low back pain is so common the website eMedicine Health mentions that low back pain is second only to the common cold as a cause of lost days at work and that 85% of people with low back pain have no specific medical cause.


Low back pain is often accompanied by sciatic symptoms such as pain, numbness, or tingling, radiating down the buttock or leg. Not all low back pain and sciatic symptoms are due to pressure on spinal nerves. Sciatic symptoms or low back pain that are not being caused by nerve impingement are almost always treatable with acupuncture and are often completely eliminated.

What’s Causing Low Back Pain?

If you have low back pain or sciatic symptoms that are not being caused by pressure on the nerves – what’s causing it? It could be poor posture or lack of exercise causing strain on the muscles. Maybe you had a previous injury and now have a ‘weak’ back. Posture and core strength are important and are often the cause of low back pain and sciatica.


Poor posture and inefficient body mechanics cause muscle strain which may lead to trigger points which are tight areas in the muscle that cause radiating pain. Trigger points cause pain in either the local area, such as the low back, or into the buttock and down the leg and perhaps into the foot. Sciatic symptoms can be caused by trigger points in the muscles of the low back and gluteals. Low back pain can cause trigger points that radiate pain as well.For most people, low back pain and sciatic symptoms are mild and go away on their own.


Unfortunately for others, they become an ongoing problem affecting every area of their lives. What if you are one of the more serious cases and have been diagnosed with one of the following conditions:

  • Arthritis
  • Bulging Disc
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Spondylolythesis
  • Spinal Fracture
  • Spinal Stenosis or Scoliosis.
  • How Can Acupuncture Help?

    Even these causes of low back pain can be relieved using acupuncture. If the back is not too severely injured, acupuncture can provide relief, either reducing the pain or eliminating it altogether. Acupuncture can reduce the amount of pain medication needed while your back is healing. Many who have been diagnosed with the conditions listed above, experience remarkable benefit from acupuncture for their low back pain.

    How Many Treatments Will I Need?

    At your first visit, we will go over your symptoms and health history to determine if you are a candidate for care. Then we will recommend a customized treatment plan with just the right combination of acupuncture therapies that work best for your unique symptoms. You may receive treatment on your first visit.

    Treatment frequency will vary based on your specific condition however, most people start with three visits per week for the first few weeks then move to two visits per week. Once you are improving between the visits, we reduce the frequency until you are on once per month maintenance visits. Patients who follow this protocol achieve long lasting results with even the most chronic and stubborn pain conditions.

    How Soon Will I See Results?

    Most patients report improvement after several weeks of care. Remember, chronic pain has been with you for some time and pain relief can depend on many variables such as the cause of your pain, your current health status, medications, diet and lifestyle. Rest assured, we see at least an 85% success rate for our patients receiving acupuncture for chronic pain.
