Prolonged sitting in front of desks, while working in front of computers is a main cause of lower back pain and sciatica. Sudden acute back pain might just flare up due to continuous strain of the back from sitting too long or sleeping in bad position. Sprain occurs when carrying heavy items, exercising or lifting weights in an incorrect position. The cause of low back pain can be different, so each patient must be evaluated and managed in the context of the patient’s own daily lifestyle. 

Acupuncture can be an effective treatment method, of it being easily applicable with immediate effect in acute back sprain or low back strain, even the body’s non-injured healthy muscles that freeze up in an overreaction of the body’s defensive mechanism. Although the sprain or the strained muscle tissue would need time to recover, the surrounding muscle tissues, which have not been injured, do not need recovery time. Just by stimulating the qi of the surrounding muscle fibers, we can relax the over reacting muscles and relieve them of their unnecessary rigidness, thus immediately reducing pain to about 50%. With the overreaction gone, the patient now only has to deal with the original injury which can also be recovered quickly through appropriate acupuncture and other therapies.
