How much does low back pain affect our productivity? The U.S. Department of Labor estimates that 100 million workdays per year are lost due to low back pain.
May it be playing on the ground with your children, vacuuming around the house, carrying groceries, or sitting at a computer all day long—– it’s no surprise that 80% of Americans suffer from low back pain at some point in their lives.
Whether it’s from a slip and fall, a sports injury, or simply twisting and moving wrong, when you have pain in your back, restoring normal function is so essential, and acupuncture can help. I have many cases where chiropractic and physical therapy had minimal results, but combining it with acupuncture can increase your body’s healing capabilities and help you get more from those treatments.
Combining painless acupuncture with cupping (see Bennett Acupuncture website under the heading “treatments” for more information), including proper exercises and stretches, and incorporating a well-balanced diet is critical in reducing or eliminating your back pain safely and naturally.
