Slipped Disc

A slipped disc can cause back pain and neck pain. Other symptoms include numbness, a tingling sensation and weakness in the arms and legs.

Tradtional treatment for a slipped disc includes physiotherapy, chiropractic and oestopathy. In chronic cases, surgery is needed. However, acupuncture can also help symtpoms of a slipped disc.

Acupuncture for a slipped disc

Research has shown that acupuncture is able to relieve pain caused by a slipped disc. I have helped many people with a slipped disc.

Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with biomedical pain relief such as a cortisosteriod injection, acupuncture may be able to reduce the degree of disc protrusion. I have seen this in some of my patients.
