Can Acupuncture Help My Pain?
Two of the most common questions asked by patients who come in with pain (whether it’s new or old) are “can acupuncture help with my pain?” and “how long does it last?”
Treating pain with acupuncture has proven to be one of the most successful and oldest methods for treating pain. The approach we take is based on a detailed evaluation and history in order to figure out the true source of the symptoms as well as how it is affecting function. One of the reasons we have such success with treating pain is that through acupuncture we are able to treat the both the cause of the pain as well as the symptoms that it is causing from many different aspects to maximize the effectiveness. What does this mean? There are thousands of acupuncture points throughout the body that stimulate different tissues in many different ways. We are able to treat the symptoms through many “avenues” and “angles” directly as well as indirectly. A perfect of this are certain types of headaches. Let’s say the cause of the headaches is from tension or tightness in the neck which means that our approach may be treating points for tight muscles, along with points that treat the nerves that supply the related region, along with points specifically for pain, along with points for relaxation, as well as points for the symptoms.
