Acupuncture for Chronic Pain Relief

Lasting Pain Relief

back painHave you been suffering with chronic pain? Do you feel like you have tried everything and relief is still nowhere to be found? When the heating pads, massage and medications are not working, consider acupuncture for pain relief.
Many people who are struggling with chronic pain have tried traditional medical approaches and are still in pain every day. Rather than live in misery, perhaps trying a new approach is appropriate. While not in the traditional repertoire of treatments for pain, acupuncture can bring much-needed relief and improve your quality of life.

A Natural Approach to Treating Chronic Pain

Acupuncture involves using thin needles (it’s pain-free) to stimulate the body internal energy flow. This internal stimulation helps to connect with and channel misdirected chi that is at the root of your pain. Chi (Qi) is the life force or energy that flows through all living things. Ongoing pain is an indicator that chi has been disrupted. In order to achieve lasting pain relief, chi must be released so that it’s flow is not impeded.
Acupuncture for Chronic Pain ReliefAcupuncture helps relieve many types of pain. Whether it is used to relieve migraine pain by targeting chi that is causing neurons to misfire or to resolve skeletal issues like arthritis and lower back pain, acupuncture may be the answer you seek.

A skilled acupuncturist assesses the issues causing your pain and devises a treatment plan specific to your needs. Pinched sciatic nerve limiting your range of motion and making each movement painful? There’s a targeted acupuncture approach that focuses on releasing misdirected energy around your back, hips and legs that can help. Limited range of motion due to a pinched nerve? Targeting specific pressure points along the nerve can bring relief, sometimes after one treatment and lasting relief with a continued treatment regimen.

Acupuncture doesn’t just help with muscular and skeletal pain. If you have had surgery and are having problems with post-surgery pain and healing, acupuncture treatment can help speed up recovery and bring faster relief.

Often, acupuncture for pain is used in combination with more traditional Western medicine treatments. Your chiropractor may recommend acupuncture as part of a regimen that includes chiropractic adjustments, electronic muscle stimulation and heated massages.

Because acupuncture involves redistributing the flow of energy throughout your body, its benefits extend beyond pain relief. Properly flowing Qi leads to more energy and greater overall well-being. You will think more clearly, rest better and feel more serene.  All of this is a great environment for healing and achieving a higher state of being.  It helps make your body less susceptible for future muscle pain.

While most people do not consider acupuncture until all other options are exhausted, it might be time to rethink when acupuncture becomes part of your wellness plan. For centuries, acupuncturists have been able to provide effective and drug free pain relief that exceeds results provided by Western medicine.
