acupuncture for back pain

Of all the patients I treat at Satori Acupuncture of Knoxville, lower back pain is the most common complaint I get from people. This is a condition endured by many, not just those who lift heavy weights at the gym or have a strenuous job that requires manual labor. I’ve witnessed this occurrence in just about every age group, demographic and gender, regardless of occupation or activity level.

The philosophy of Satori Acupuncture of Knoxville is that finding out what the root cause of your problem is the primary concern. As the acupuncturist, I’m not only here to listen to how your lower back pain manifests, but I want to also discover what behaviors are exacerbating your pain. I want to help develop a custom-made, individualized plan using my knowledge of acupuncture, nutrition and exercise to help you find relief and regain some of mobility without discomfort.


Our society has become one where the busy, overachieving, professional is the professional who succeeds. As a result, we rush from point A to point B, getting in and out of cars constantly, sitting at a desk (or in a car) for hours with bad posture, maybe renovating our house on the weekends, working out, negotiating those stairs at work or even sleeping on a bad mattress. Oftentimes, our lower back pain isn’t acute, it isn’t sudden, it has started to develop as a twinge and then progressed to something more sever over time. Lower back pain can creep into your life without you noticing it much at all, but then one day you realize that it has had a significant impact in reducing your chance to enjoy even the simplest things in life. Other times the pain may in fact be sudden and acute. Perhaps you lifted something too heavy, or you stood up from a bent position too quickly? Either way, back pain doesn’t discriminate, and it tends to get everyone at some point in time.

Acupuncture can assist in the release of natural painkillers that relieve lower back pain, promote improved sleep patterns and reduce the need for prescribed pain medications which, over time, may have negative side effects due to prolonged use.

With regularly sessions, acupuncture can help one to achieve a sense of general well being and a better quality of life. A Satori Acupuncture of Knoxville we take each patient’s entire lifestyle and life history into account before we finalize a treatment plan that includes acupuncture.

Acupuncture for lower back pain is not a new fix or a certainty, but acupuncture has shown remarkable results consistently in hundreds of clinical trials to give long term relief where pharmaceutical medications have generally only provided a temporary screen for the real issues.

So if you are in Knoxville, please visit me at Satori Acupuncture. I would truly enjoy explaining the benefits of acupuncture for lower back pain and other areas of body.

Your future acupuncture practitioner in Knoxville, Nikki
