For those who suffer from acute or chronic pain, acupuncture can provide quick relief. The process involves inserting thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body. This therapy stimulates the nervous system and releases chemicals that help to block pain signals from reaching the brain. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for many conditions, including inflammation of the limbs, joints, neck, shoulder, back, and leg. It can also provide relief for chronic pain with a severe flare-up. In addition, acupuncture can help to reduce swelling and improve circulation. As a result, it is an excellent choice for those looking for quick and lasting pain relief.
Painless acupuncture for pain-free
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine used for centuries to treat various conditions. The process involves inserting thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body. This therapy stimulates the nervous system and releases chemicals that help to block pain signals from reaching the brain. In addition, acupuncture can help to increase blood flow and reduce inflammation. As a result, acupuncture can be an effective treatment for both acute and chronic pain.
In many cases, acupuncture can provide quick relief from pain and swelling. For chronic pain sufferers, acupuncture can help reduce flare-ups' frequency and severity.
Causes of acute and chronic pain
Musculoskeletal and connective tissue injuries like acute and chronic pain lead to many clinic visits per year. Causes of these injuries may be external (sports injuries, car accidents, trauma), internal (lasting wear and tear of muscles, ligaments and tendons; bones weakened by osteoporosis), or both. Acute injuries are characterised by severe pain, swelling and inflammation, and in some cases, internal bleeding. Treatment of critical injuries should focus on relieving pain, reducing swelling and redness, and stopping the bleeding. Chronic wounds are dull pain, stiffness and numbness, and decreased muscle mass and strength. Treatment of chronic injuries includes pain relief and restoration of physical and physiological functions.
Pain killer medication is not the answer.
Pain is the first bodily sensation induced by a noxious stimulus that causes physical discomfort. Pain may be acute or chronic. For severe pain, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents (NSAIDs) and opioid analgesics offer immediate and reliable relief effects. Though these drugs have serious side effects, short-term use is justifiable because the benefits often outweigh the risks. For chronic pain, on the other hand, the use of NSAIDs and opioid analgesics are usually not the desired treatment options, as they symptomatically relieve pain but do not change the underlying course of illness. Unfortunately, the convenience of these drugs contributes to the vicious cycle of pain, followed by continuous and repetitive use of drugs to relieve pain symptomatically. When the medicines' effect dissipates, patients are often left with nothing but more pain and more complications from side effects. Therefore, it is essential to understand that while these drugs may be beneficial for acute pain, they do not adequately address most cases of chronic pain. Additional treatment modalities with fewer side effects, such as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, should integrate with the treatment plan to ensure adequate and complete recovery from chronic pain conditions.
Acupuncture offers quick and lasting pain relief.
Treatment of chronic pain is a sophisticated balance of art and science. Proper treatment of pain requires a careful evaluation of the type of disharmony (excess or deficiency, cold or heat, exterior or interior), characteristics (qi and blood stagnation), and locations (upper body, lower body, extremities, or internal organs). Moreover, optimal treatment requires integrative use of herbs, acupuncture, cupping and tui-na massage therapies. All these therapies work together to balance the underlying deficiencies, strengthen the body, and facilitate recovery from chronic pain. Our acupuncture pain management targets both the symptom and the cause of pain and, as such, often achieves immediate and long-term success. Furthermore, TCM pain management is often associated with few or no side effects.
In conclusion, for treating mild to severe pain due to various causes, acupuncture for pain management offers similar treatment effects as pharmaceutical drugs but has significantly fewer side effects. Though TCM therapies may not be as convenient as the drugs for acute pain management, they are often superior [better results with fewer side effects] for stable and quick pain relief.
