“I was not a believer in acupuncture and hesitant to give it a try because I hate needles! Derek made the entire process comfortable, he asked lots of questions, took notes, and I NEVER have seen a needle in his office.
My lower back pain was gone within just a few sessions. Amazing results after years of pain and being told by another doctor that I would just have to live with chronic pain and manage it with drugs. I give Derek my highest recommendation!”
There a number of studies that shows the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of chronic and acute low back pain. In one such study, published in the Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain, it concluded that acupuncture has a “beneficial and persistent effectiveness against chronic low back pain.”
In another study, it showed that acupuncture could be highly effective for the treatment of acute low back pain. This study also looked at the effect of certain medications and concluded that acupuncture was more effective than the medication used in the study.
