Hello all! My name is Emma and I am a new acupuncturist in a new town, Durham, NC. Today is my first day in my new office. I am working at Holistic Chiropractic at Hope Valley Commons. Today all my patients had back pain. Interesting that this is such a common problem all over. What is more interesting is that acupuncture can heal it remarkably quickly. Depending on how severe your back pain is, it can take anywhere from one to three months to fix. Most likely though you will start seeing results after the first session! Acupuncture works well because it helps your body become stronger and healthier.
