Tired of Pain Medications? Acupuncture Can Help.

You're probably reading this article because you deal with some form of pain and are wondering if acupuncture could help. What kind of pain are you in? Over the past seven years I've helped hundreds of people significantly reduce and even stop their pain from problems like:

  • migraines
  • fibromyalgia
  • sciatica
  • osteoarthritis
  • tennis elbow
  • frozen shoulder
  • carpal tunnel
  • both acute and chronic pain
  • post operative recovery
  • menstrual cramps
  • musculoskeletal skeletal pain
  • pain as a result of occupational repetitive motion
  • idiopathic pain associated with cancer treatments

The range of intensity could be from a mild discomfort like a numbness and tingling, to sharp stabbing pain that is debilitating.

In addition to the discomfort itself, the impacts of suffering from physical pain are many. It could be preventing you from doing the things that you normally enjoy. It could stop you from getting regular exercise, which impacts your energy, sleep, appetite and weight. Chronic pain produces a constant low level of stress on the nervous system and can lead to depression. Some medications, if taken long term, can cause stomach problems. Independent from that, who wants to be on pain medications for the rest of their lives?

Most types of pain are effectively treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Utilizing a natural solution like acupuncture provides many benefits including:

  • Alleviate the pain
  • Reduce your intake of medications
  • Prevent surgery
  • Expedite recovery from surgery
  • Let you resume exercise again
  • Help you get back to the things you enjoy

Some people ask me how acupuncture works to relieve pain. Acupuncture activates your innate healing abilities. It invites the body to release endorphins, your body's natural pain killer. Acupuncture also increases your blood circulation. In Chinese Medical theory most pain is caused by poor circulation. This lack of circulation could have started in any number of ways. Two of the most common are from injuries and a sedentary lifestyle.

If you have been on pain medications for a long time or haven't found anything that works yet, it would be worth it to try acupuncture and Chinese medicine. You might be pleasantly surprised that not only will you have less pain, you will also notice improvements in your overall vitality and well being.
