Back Pain Management with Acupuncture

At Ling Tung Acupuncture we see many people with lower back pain and we know are able to assist in pain management.  We also see patients with thigh pain and numbness.  There’s often a history of a lower back injury or lower back surgery prior to the thigh numbness.  Research has shown that acupuncture can help reduce the area of numbness (Jing & Hou, 2012), which during treatments feels like the area of numbness is getting smaller on the thigh over a course of a treatment such as over 8 sessions.
