Acupuncture at Six

September 5, 2017

Dear Guru,

I hope this message finds you well.

Due to lower back problems (spondylolisthesis), I need physiotherapy. I was wondering if your clinics offer acupuncture?

Many thanks for your help.

Hi Eugenie

Yes – all of the clinics offer acupuncture.

In this year’s NICE report on low back pain, acupuncture is no longer advised for back pain – and I tend to agree.

You need an active, exercise based program to manage your spondy and not just a passive treatment like acupuncture. Whilst it may give temporary relief it cannot and will not solve your issue.

Hope this makes sense – and I’m sure one of the Physio’s will explain this.
