Acupuncture for Pain Relief

Natural healing to relieve pain
Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions.

Research has shown that acupuncture relieves pain through a number of mechanisms: in spasmed muscles, it can deactivate the malfunctioning neuromuscular junction so that the muscle may finally relax its contraction, thus reestablishing proper circulation to the area.

In the absence of spasms, the local tissue cells will still react to the insertion of an acupuncture needle with a complex chain reaction, releasing a variety of endogenous biochemicals that promote local healing and help modulate the pain signal.

Acupuncture has also been shown to have local and systemic anti-inflammatory effects, and to affect the central nervous system. This is particularly relevant for chronic pain patients, whose nervous systems have often been oversensitized by their condition, as well as for patients whose pain coincides with high levels of stress.

Acupuncture has thus been shown to be effective in the treatment of conditions including:

– Temporomandibular joint and jaw pain

– Headaches, often caused by tense muscles in the shoulders, neck and jaw

– Lower back pain, neck pain, both chronic and acute

– Sciatica

– Muscle strains in any part of the body

– Tendinitis, bursitis (elbow, shoulder, hip, knee)

– Frozen shoulder

– Carpal tunnel syndrome

– Trigger fingers

– Plantar fasciitis

– Bell’s Palsy
