Lifetime Acupuncture-Lower-Back-Pain


The good news is, Acupuncture is one of the most effective treatments for back pain and it is also the #1 reason for people to look for acupuncture treatments. Many patients have reported complete healing or great improvement to their lower, upper or middle back pain issues with acupuncture treatments.

Guidelines from the American Pain Society and American College of Physicians say doctors should consider acupuncture as an alternative therapy for patients with chronic low-back pain that’s not helped by conventional treatment.

Acupuncture involves inserting very thin, sterile needles at specific points on the body. These points that are connected by what’s called energy meridians, are stimulated through acupuncture needles and provides stagnant energy to flow normally.  This provides the body to heal the underlying cause of pain.

In Lifetime Acupuncture of Long Island, located in 2103 Deer Park Ave, Deer Park, NY,  we have helped many patients recover or find relief from their chronic back pain. If you suffer from back pain and would like to consult with Hatice Daspinar, L.A.c  please contact us at 631 3921224.

Acupuncture and UFC Figthers

Have you seen the latest UFC shows on FOX TV? If you have, you will see that more and more highly skilled fighters are integrating acupuncture into their routine care. UFC athletes are using acupuncture for both proactively to get ready for their fights and for recovery after their fights. In either situation acupuncture has been known to be very effective.


In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang are the two polar that complement each other. For the UFC athlete, yin can be thought of rest and recovery while yang relates to competing and performing. You could also think of the training period to yin and competition and “game day” to yang. Acupuncture can be incorporated for both of these components of the athletic experience.


Everyone agrees that these highly skilled UFC fighters get better but putting many hours of hard work in the gym every day. However regular acupuncture treatments would be beneficial in may ways. One benefit is to treat specific points at the different areas of the muscles and tendons to prevent injuries that can disrupt the training schedule. Another benefit of acupuncture for the athletes would be to have their immune and digestion systems stronger and healthier. Strong immune and digestion would increase the performance during fight.


In Lifetime Acupuncture of Deer Park, we offer a clean and relaxing environment for our patients to enjoy their acupuncture treatment. Give us a call now to schedule your next acupuncture session with Hatice Daspinar, L.Ac, Dipl. Ac.
