Acupuncture works by using tiny, sterile needles to penetrate various pressure points throughout the body and restore energy balance throughout the body. The process is not painful, although patients often report feeling other sensations when the needle penetrates the skin, such as numbness or warmth. There are more than 2,000 pressure points all over the body, and by stimulating them, the needles encourage your body to release hormones and neurotransmitters the help manage pain and improve natural immunity.
Acupuncture for Back Pain, Neck Pain and More
Some of the most common ailments that acupuncture benefits include neck pain and back pain. That is why we find that the ancient Chinese medicine works so well in our clinic - because we see a lot of patients suffering from pain in the neck and back. However, many people also receive relief from sciatica, plantar fasciitis, and headaches including those that are recurring. In fact, acupuncture is a common treatment for individuals suffering from chronic migraine headaches, as the treatment's affect on the body's central nervous system seems to improve the condition.
Have you ever used acupuncture to treat pain or other symptoms in your body? If so, did you find the treatment effective for your pain?
