Acupuncture for Pain Management
Nearly 1/3 of adults in the United State suffer from chronic pain
As many as 85% of chronic pain patients have experienced relief acupuncture
Scientific research has found acupuncture to be an effective and safe form of treatment for many forms of chronic pain
Acupuncture has been found to release endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals, which have been found to be 200 times more effective than morphine at relieving pain
Living with chronic pain can severely impact quality of life. Oftentimes standard treatments like pharmaceuticals, physical therapy, ice/heat, and the like aren’t enough. What’s more, standard pharmaceutical treatments can come with negative and even dangerous side effects. It comes as no surprise then that people are increasingly turning away from harsh and addictive opiates and pain relievers, and exploring more natural methods to find relief.
Scientific research has begun to recognize the efficacy of acupuncture as a method of effective pain management.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny, hair-thin needles into specific points to balance the flow of energy, as well as impact neurotransmitters and hormone levels, including serotonin and endorphins. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter responsible for mood. Endorphins are your bodies natural pain-relieving hormone, and have been found to be 200 times more effective than morphine at relieving pain.
Some patients report improvement in as little as one acupuncture treatment, although a series of treatments may be necessary for pain management.
Acupuncture can be used for many different types of chronic and acute pain, including:
Headaches and migraines
In addition to being an effective treatment for the management of pain, other science-backed benefits of acupuncture include reducing anxiety and stress, improving digestion, promoting restful sleep, boosting energy, and enhancing mental clarity.
