Acupuncture is a natural, safe, and effective treatment for all types of acute or chronic pain. It is approved by the medical community as well as the World Health Organization as an effective alternative to prescription pain medications. Though some people view acupuncture as too woo woo, in reality acupuncture has a strong basis in modern science.

 

Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms. This is great since the body has an amazingly efficient system of synchronous patterns in order to heal. The body views the needle as a micro trauma, causing the body to release endorphins that relieve pain as well as other hormones that reduce inflammation. Moreover, more blood flows to the local area, which starts the healing process. This is why acupuncture not only relieves pain but eventually heals the root of the pain as well.

 

Distal points, which are located on the opposite to the site of pain, are especially effective for pain. Acupuncture works on the nerves and the fascia layer. There are multiple nerve pathways throughout the body while the fascia layer surrounds your muscles, bones, and nerves. An easier explanation is to think of turning on a light. Do you walk up to the light bulb or do you flip the light switch? The switch may be located far from the bulb but the electrical pathway allows the bulb to turn on.

 

Acupuncture treats all types of pain in this way. The most common pain conditions I treat are neck and back pain, sciatica, migraines, neuropathy, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, and acute injuries.
