Back pain is one of the top three things we successfully treat and includes low back pain, mid back pain, and upper back pain.

Lumbar or lower back pain is the most common back pain we treat. Ackerman Acupuncture in Anoka has seen patients with back pain who are scheduled to have back surgery, only to cancel their back surgery appointments, after four to six acupuncture treatments.

What You Can Do

     Exercise

Walking is great exercise and helps keep the lower back strong by strengthening the legs. Think of strong legs as the foundation which supports the back.

Weight control

Keeping your core area tight and strong will also help. Staying within optimal weight range helps avoid added stress to your lower back.

 Control waist measurement

Keeping your waist measurement and weight down, decreases back strain and…healthy waist girth can also help avoid heart disease, According to the American Heart Association. For women waist measurement should be less than 35 inches; less than 40 inches around for men. See link with more information from Harvard.edu: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/obesity-prevention-source/obesity-definition/abdominal-obesity/
