Ever heard of Acupuncture? Yes! Acupuncture is the answer to all your back pain worries. More and more people now a days are depending upon the alternative treatments for curing back pain. Even various physicians and health care professionals are advising their patients to take benefits from the acupuncture treatment and get relief from back pain.

 Acupuncture has been used since thousands of year to cure and treat various diseases and disorders. There are many success stories related to treatment of back pain with acupuncture. Since it does not employ the use of any external medication, many people find it an easy and affordable mean of cure.

The treatment of acupuncture runs on a simple theory. We have two thousand energy points on our body. These points are connected with the twenty pathways or the meridians. Wherein, conduction of the chi or qi life forces take place. If any one of the pathways are blocked, back pain comes into play.

Acupuncture treatment involves the clearing of the above mentioned path for the proper conduction of the life forces. The process of acupuncture involves the insertion of anywhere between one to twenty needles into the human body. The number of the needles to be inserted depends on the age, sex and magnitude of pain to the patient.

Besides this, there are different ways of inserting the needles in the body. Some of them are made to rest on the skin surface, while the others are inserted into the skin. The depth of the needles range from one inch to several inches. These needles are then left stationary for about thirty minutes. The needles may be sometimes rotated, depending upon the type of treatment. This is done to free the energy that is blocked in the body. At certain times, the needles, before inserting are warmed or charged electrically to facilitate the process properly.

Apart from this, some acupuncturist also use the method of moxibustion (heat therapy). It is a process in which small amounts of herbs are burnt at the need of the needles to be inserted. These herbs help in encouraging the negative energyb to go away from the body.
