A. The previous answer is correct. The back pain you are experiencing is most likely related to menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea). Acupuncture is very effective in regulating the menstrual cycle and relieving this pain. Additionally, many acupuncturists offer Chinese herbal medicine that can also help your condition.
