Acupuncture offers many distinct benefits for a variety of patients with a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. We'll focus on the physical today, as acupuncture provides drug-free pain relief to patients who choose acupuncture as a treatment.
Below, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope provides more information about acupuncture and pain relief.
Acupuncture is now being used in the US and other Western countries to help treat conditions that arise from injury as well as everyday wear and tear, conditions like low back pain, nerve pain (like shingles), headaches, arthritis, inflammation, fibromyalgia, even menopause pains, and menstrual cramps.
Acupuncture is believed by many to be effective in pain relief through releasing the body's natural endorphins, the body's own pain-killing chemicals which are interconnected with the part of the brain that manages serotonin, which is a chemical in your brain involved with mood.
Acupuncture is virtually risk-free, too. The advent of more pragmatic, single-use, sealed needle packages has all but eliminated risks of getting blood-borne infections HIV or hepatitis B.
