Back pain is so common but it is the most neglected. For young people back pain becomes a grin and bear it affair while older people it is explain away, as a sign of aging.
If you are above 50 years old, do you have back pain that was worsened by walking? Is the back pain eased by crouching or rolling into a fetal position? You may have lumbar or lower back spinal stenosis.
In a study of 1,162 adults with chronic lower back pain, forty eight percent in a group who underwent between 10 and 15 treatments with traditional Chinese “verum” acupuncture reported at least 1/3 less pain and an improvement in functional ability, with lasting benefit as compared to twenty seven percent of those reporting relief in the group undergoing drug and exercise therapy.
