Acupuncture for lower back pain. Demonstrated by an acupuncturist who gets it. Acupuncture does not always have to be local or the site of the pain. Points can be used distally or different areas of the body which often renders a better result for pain relief. This treatment can avoid having to take clothes off and lie in an uncomfortable position to receive acupuncture. It can be performed in a seated, reclined or lying position. Often pain relief will be immediate then a number of treatments may be required to resolve the problem.
