Many of us experience it — not all of us do something about it. At Integrative Acupuncture, a leading provider of acupuncture & Chinese medicine, holistic nutrition and functional medicine in Delray Beach, we put a lot of emphasis on helping those in pain.
Our skilled team of acupuncturists have seen a lot of patients who complain of pain in various parts of the body, and acupuncture has proven to help them immensely. Outside of what we witness at our office, there are many studies out there that show that acupuncture provides relief from common forms of pain. Most recently, in a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers pooled results from 29 past studies of about 18,000 participants. The results shows that acupuncture relieved pain by about 50%.
Seeking alternative treatments, like acupuncture, for pain relief is not uncommon, especially for those who have tried countless other traditional approaches like anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, stretching and rest. Adding acupuncture to these standard remedies could be the missing piece of the puzzle!
Acupuncture can help relieve all kinds of pain. Studies support that some of the most common conditions it can help treat include low back pain, migraines, tension headaches and knee pain. It can also help with things like sciatic pain, neck and shoulder pain, heel pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
You might be wondering how acupuncture works for pain management. This is done by affecting several pain pathways and healing responses at the same time, including raising endorphin levels and diminishing the nervous system’s pain response, decreasing inflammation and swelling, relaxing muscles and stop spasm, and increasing circulation to the area in pain.
