This is a Western medicine take on a pain relief modality that has been in use for thousands of years. Many studies have shown that acupuncture, and specifically electro-acupuncture, to be effective for all kinds of pain, low back pain in particular. For low back pain, The Inspired Spine Provider will insert 12 tiny needles – so thin that they easily bend with only the slightest pressure – into your low back and gluteal muscles. Electrodes are then attached to 8 of the needles and a mild current is applied. You will feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation. We keep the needles in for 30 minutes while you listen to relaxing music of your choice in a comfortable room after which the needles are removed.
