Are you dealing with chronic lower back pain? If so, you understand first-hand the range of emotions this type of pain can evoke. Whether you’re feeling scared, discouraged, depressed, or overwhelmed, your feelings are justified.
Pain is always subjective– it’s defined by the person who experiences it. Because chronic lower back pain cannot be completely reversed, it’s important to find effective pain management strategies.
One of the best ways to cope with and manage this pain is acupuncture. Acupuncture can provide relief from chronic lower back pain and help put those negative emotions to rest.
What is Chronic Lower Back Pain?
Chronic lower back pain is the type of pain that never really goes away. It’s defined as a pain continuing for more than three months, and often throughout the course of a lifetime. This type of pain is something many people have to deal with. An estimated 1 in every 100 Americans suffer from lower back pain.
Beyond just pain in your lower back area, there are additional signs of chronic lower back pain:
- Stiffness in your back in the morning
- Interruptions to your sleep due to back pain
- Feeling tired and irritable
Depending on its severity, chronic lower back pain can affect your quality of life. From the way you move, to your work, and your overall ability to feel comfortable and happy.
What Causes Chronic Lower Back Pain?
Chronic lower back pain can be caused by a wide variety of problems, including:
- Inflamed and irritated large roots in the lower back and legs
- Irritated small nerves in the lower back
- Strained and weak erector spinae muscles
- Damaged ligaments, bones, and joints
- A disintegrating lumbar disc
Regardless of the reason behind your chronic lower back pain, acupuncture has proven time and time again to be an effective treatment.
