If you want to heal your BACK PAIN, do it Naturally…

According to Statistics Canada, four out of five adults will experience at least one episode of back pain at some point in their lives, most commonly occurring between the ages of 30-50. Back pain is considered acute if present <6 weeks and chronic if >3 months, with acute pain being more common. Pain can occur anywhere along the spine but typically occurs in the low back area (http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/82-619-m/2006003/4053542-eng.htm).

The list of predisposing risk factors is long; ranging from injury, medications, overweight/obesity to food intolerances, stress, dehydration, cigarette smoking and more. http://www.ndhealthfacts.org/wiki/Back_Pain

Risk factors predispose us to disk degeneration, herniated discs, muscle tension, osteoporosis, arthritis, scoliosis, kidney stones, pregnancy, infections, spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia, etc. etc. http://www.niams.nih.gov/Health_Info/Back_Pain/back_pain_ff.asp


Treatment focuses on these objectives

  1. Reducing pain
  2. Accelerating healing
  3. Restoring ability to perform daily activities


I use a combination of the following treatment modalities:

  • Pain injections
    • Often combined with acupuncture, I use specific formulas injected directly to the muscle belly, points of injury, or joint spaces to reduce pain and speed healing
  • Clinical nutrition
    • Specific nutrients can be supplemented to up-regulate healing processes and regeneration of damaged tissue
  • Acupuncture
    • Tiny needles are used to access meridians, redirect qi (or energy), release trigger points, and soothe particularly painful areas in muscle
