Many people show a rapid response to acupuncture and experience immediate pain relief, in other cases the condition may require several courses of treatment. Pain relief through treatment with acupuncture can also reduce the need for medication. For more chronic pain, acupuncture can play an important role in maintaining a healthy back.

Acupuncture, manual therapy and exercise are recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the early treatment and management of persistent or recurrent low back pain, defined as non-specific low back pain that has lasted for more than 6 weeks, but for less than 12 months.
