Self-Care for Back Pain, Sunshine Healing Arts Acupuncture & Wellness in Jacksonville Beach, Florida

Acupuncture is known to be an extremely effective treatment for many types of back pain.  At Sunshine Healing Arts, we want to help you learn ways to be proactive in your own recovery as well. Here are some simple techniques to use in addition to acupuncture that will help to decrease your pain.

·         Improve your posture.  Take a look at your posture in a mirror.  Try your best to keep your weight evenly balanced when standing or walking.

·         Manage your stress.  Stress can contribute to pain and take a toll on your overall health.  Try deep breathing or meditation to help you stay calm and relaxed.

·         Exercise.  Regular exercise will keep your core muscles strong.  Yoga and Qi Gong are both gentle and effective forms of physical activity.
