Back pain can be caused by issues with the joints, tendons, and muscles in the back. In many cases, particularly in younger patients, back pain is caused by troubles in the muscles that leave the back tight.
At Re3 Healing Aesthetics and Wellness, Dr. Bonnie Wang offers natural, comprehensive treatments for back pain. These noninvasive treatments are safe and can be effective for back pain relief.
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to release tension in the back. During this treatment, Dr. Wang inserts sterilized, specially designed needles into key points in your back. Acupuncture is pain-free and often very relaxing. The needles remain in place for a few minutes in order to improve energy flow and release tension. Dr. Wang then removes the needles. Regular acupuncture treatments can help relieve—and prevent—back pain.
Cupping is another centuries-old practice used to relieve back pain. In this treatment, special warmed cups are placed in key locations on the back. The cups create suction, improving blood flow to the areas beneath the cup. Improved blood flow allows your body’s natural healing processes to clear away inflammation that could cause pain.
Light therapy is a more modern technique to relax your back. This therapy uses safe, infrared light to gently heat tissues deep in the back. The heat can release tension in the back as well as increase healing.
Another modern technique, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, involve stimulating your body’s natural healing to relieve back strain and injuries. With this process, platelets in your blood that carry growth factors signal your stem cells to promote healing in the injured area. By injecting PRP into areas of back pain, you can speed healing and reduce pain.
Percutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (PENS) therapy for back pain may also offer relief. This therapy uses gentle electrical signals to stimulate nerves. This can break up pain signals in the back, relieving pain.
All back pain treatments have their own risks and benefits. Dr. Wang can help you determine which treatment is right for the cause of your pain as well as your lifestyle. Some treatments may need to be repeated regularly to see the best results.
