Back Pain

Whether its a slipped disc, a pinched nerve or just an injury that has never fully healed, Acuhealth will help ease your back pain.

What is this condition?

For adults over 40, lower back pain ranks third as a cause for doctor visits, after heart disease and arthritis and 80% of people will experience it at some point in their lives.

The vast majority of back problems are a result of wear and tear on parts of the spine over many years. However, it can also be caused by other factors such as arthritis, impact or lifting injuries, or more targeted problems with the discs themselves.

Is this service right for me?

Depending on the cause, you may find yourself experiencing shooting pains, or dull aches in the lower back, hips or buttocks.

Acuhealth will work with you to find the root causes of your pain and treat them accordingly.

How is it treated?

Following a thorough assessment, treatment is a combination of muscle release, mobilisation, acupuncture and specific exercise.  Recovery may take time as we build strength and flexibility into the joint.


Acuhealth relieves pain in a similar way to opioid painkillers, but without any adverse side effects. Treatments reduce inflammation and promote circulation to the injury to speed up healing.


We begin by assessing the possible causes originating from activity, posture and muscle tightness to develop a treatment plan tailored to you. A combination of acupuncture and deep tissue work to tight muscles often helps.

Soft tissue & joint mobilisation
