Acupuncture for Chronic Pain
Are you one of the over 1.5 billion people in the world struggling with chronic pain? Are traditional pain relief methods not doing the job, and/or are you concerned about the negative side effects of traditional approaches?
The sad truth is that standard pain management treatments are often not enough, and many come with negative and even potentially dangerous side effects. Opiates and other pain relievers can cause irritability, anxiety, drowsiness, nausea, and other issues. Many pain medications are addictive, and in some cases have led to severe issues - and even death.
Over the years, research has increasingly pointed to safe alternative to pain medication: acupuncture.
Did you know that as many as 85% of chronic pain patients have found relief from acupuncture? Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny, hair-thin needles into specific points on the body to correct imbalances and positively affect neurotransmitters and hormone levels. In particular, research has found that acupuncture releases endorphins, the body's natural pain-killer, and has been found to be 200 times more effective than morphine at relieving pain.
Pain relief can often be felt in as little as one single acupuncture treatment, although a series of acupuncture treatments are typically necessary for chronic issues.
Whether you are an athlete trying to get back to your training and competitions following injury or heavy training, or are looking for pain relief to improve your overall quality of life, acupuncture may be the answer you've been looking for.
Acupuncture can be a viable pain relief option for many types of pain, including:
