Lower Back Pain Q & A

What are the main symptoms of back pain?

Back pain is quite common. Almost everyone has experienced some or all of these symptoms at one time or another:

  • Stabbing, sharp pain
  • Dull, achy pain
  • Burning
  • Numbness
  • Stiffness along your spine
  • Compromised or restricted movement
  • Inability to stand fully erect

There are many different types of back pain, but they can all interfere with your quality of life.

What constitutes the lower back?

Your back is organized into four sections. These are:

  • Cervical spine, or neck
  • Thoracic spine, or upper back
  • Lumbar spine, or lower back
  • Sacral region

The lower back, or lumbar spine, curves inward and facilitates most of your turns, twists, and bends. The muscles in this area are large and have a tendency to strain during heavy lifting, swift movement, or excess weight.

What causes lower back pain?

Lower back pain is typically caused by injuries, poor posture, degeneration, or tumors. Some other causes of lower back pain are:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cancer
  • Spinal infection
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle spasms

How does acupuncture help with lower back pain?

At Esoterra Acupuncture, Dr. Rastrygina treats your back pain with holistic methods that don’t rely on pharmaceutical drugs or surgical interventions. Whether your pain is acute or chronic, Dr. Rastrygina uses a combination of methods that may include acupuncture, aromatherapy, craniosacral therapy, or sound therapy to address both the symptoms and the reason for your back pain.

If Dr. Rastrygina determines that acupuncture would be an effective method in treating your pain, she checks your meridians for blockages in your energy flow, or chi (qi), to determine how they are contributing to your back dysfunction. She pinpoints your acupuncture points and places hair-thin needles in your lumbar spine, thus restoring strength and energy to your lower back.
