Acupuncture can be excellent for lumbar pain.
Recommend that you see your physician or orthopedist to evaluate for cause of pain. Surgery is sometime indicated. One of the things i treat most often is lumbar pain with sciatica. It often responds well to acupuncture with e-stim. Pens treatment or circle the dragon.
