Conditions Treated Back & Neck Pain

Relieving low back & neck pain with acupuncture, acupressure, and dry needling techniques

Chronic neck and back pain can make the simplest tasks seem impossible. Finding a comfortable position to sit, stand or lay down can lead to a lot of frustration. The Messina Acupuncture team is dedicated to helping the communities of East Setauket, Port Jefferson and Stony Brook with chronic pain, injury and other musculoskeletal diseases and conditions. Neck pain (cervicalgia) affects the cervical spine, the areas in and around your spine, beneath the skull. The pain can radiate into your arms and hands, causing carpal tunnel syndrome. It can also radiate into your head, leading to migraines, headaches, and occipital neuralgia. Common causes include muscle tension, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, herniated disks, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, trauma, poor posture, mental stress and other health conditions.

Conditions Treated Lower back pain

Lower back pain (lumbago) affects the lumbar spine, the area between your lower ribs and the upper hips.

The pain often radiates into the hips and legs, causing common conditions known as sciatica or iliotibial band syndrome (ITB).

The causes of lower back pain are similar to neck pain, with muscle tension, bursitis, tendonitis, sprains/strains, sedentary lifestyles, and herniated discs as some of the most common causes.
