CAN ACUPUNCTURE HELP WITH CHRONIC PAIN?
Chronic pain, in any area of the body, is enough to make anybody’s life feel miserable. And while the recommended treatments like anti-inflammatory medication and heat rubs can work for a huge number of people, those with more severe and debilitating forms of Chronic pain syndrome (CPS) are often times not relieved by these more conventional means and further unconventional forms of treatment must be sought.
Acupuncture has a long and well-documented history of treating Chronic Pain in China and more recently has even been accredited and verified by several medical studies in the West as being an effective treatment for chronic pain.
So if you’re a long-term sufferer of chronic pain or even just exploring more natural treatments for your condition, you may want to look into what a professional and qualified acupuncturist like Qin (Kathy) could do to help you manage and treat your condition.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE HELP CHRONIC PAIN?
Acupuncture, in general, is all about reestablishing balance in your body and treating you as a whole rather than just your symptoms, acupuncture has been known to help activate the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms. In western medicinal terms, it is a combination of the effects of acupuncture on neurotransmitters, hormone levels and the immune system.
For most people suffering from CPS, they have exhausted all other medical options after a relatively short time. CPS can be difficult to manage effectively as rather than there being a single cause of the pain it can be a combination of a number of different medical problems and conditions causing it.
Acupuncture is perfectly situated to deal with these problems because as discussed earlier, it takes into account all the things that are happening in the body and helps to improve their overall condition. It is also very personalized to the individual being treated meaning your treatment plan will be tailored to you and the combination of conditions that result in your CPS.
