Studies Prove, Acupuncture Relieves Back Pain : Centeracupuncture.com
Back pain is a very common ailment in Manhattan NYC. In fact, most people will experience back pain at some point in their lives, and it is the most common reason for missed work and doctor visits in the United States.
In the short term, over-the-counter or prescription medication can help to mask the pain and provide enough relief to function. The problem with painkilling drugs is when they are used long-term, which can lead to complications of liver and kidney damage, or serious dependencies with opiate-based drugs.
Fortunately, acupuncture is a natural, effective solution right here in midtown Manhattan that stops the painful branch-symptoms and corrects the root problem/s causing pain. After as few as 3 to 6 acupuncture treatments, most people will experience significant relief comparable to painkilling medications. In my practice, the patients that comply with herbal medicine generally experience faster, stronger pain relief.
