JENNIE: Acupuncture is a nonsurgical treatment for pain

JENNIE Season 2, Episode 18

TELEVISION PARK–  Some people who have chronic back pain need surgery to get relief.

It’s a serious step that requires a significant recovery time. But there are cases where back pain can be relieved with non-surgical treatments.

Back pain is categorized as “chronic” when it lasts three months or longer, and while surgery may be necessary in some cases, doctors say there are alternatives.

Physical therapy can help patients learn better posture, gain flexibility and core strength. Yoga and meditation can help fight the emotional turmoil that comes from coping with chronic back pain.

Other nonsurgical options include massage and acupuncture.


Dr. Lianying He, Dipl.Ac, L.Ac., Ph.D looks at the role of the inflammatory response in pain management, arthritis, and neurological recovery.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine are ways to neutralizing the disturbed inner energy force.  Dr. He offers regular, electric and laser acupuncture, as well as cupping.
