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 are used distally or in different areas of the body. This can render a better result for pain relief. This treatment can avoid having to take clothes off and lie in an uncomfortable position to receive acupuncture. This is performed in a seated, reclined or lying position. Pain relief can be immediate. However a number of treatments may be required to resolve the problem.
