Acupuncture For Bulging Disc
Acupuncture can be helpful for any type of pain. It works by relaxing the muscles and improving circulation. Since most pain is caused by tight muscles and lack of blood flow, acupuncture is very effective.
To treat your back, we would do muscles on your lower back. You should feel better the next day. It takes time to get all the muscles to relax.
We insert the needles around the back, we leave them in for 20 to 30 minutes. I also use far infrared lamps to improve the effect.
A muscle that is in a spasm, will relax once you put acupuncture needles in it. It is physiology. It cannot stay in a spasm when you get acupuncture.
Whether you have back pain that is very chronic or it is a new problem, acupuncture can help that. You relax the tight muscles and improve blood flow. The body heals itself.
This is the far infrared lamp that acupuncturists like to use, it is not just a heat lamp. It is therapeutic heat treatment.
