Acupuncture for Neck & Back Pain Relief

Chronic pain in the muscles and joints can make life miserable. Standard anti-inflammatory treatments, physical therapy, and appropriate exercises can often ease pain but when they don't acupuncture is worth considering.

Over the years there has been substantial debate about whether acupuncture really works for chronic pain. A Recent Study in the Archive of Internal Medicine says Yes it does with results from a study of nearly 18,000 participants saying that acupuncture relieved their pain by 50%.

Acupuncture treats muscle pain in a variety of ways, the most direct being that when a disposable painless hair-thin needle is inserted into the skin, the body releases chemicals called endorphins. Endorphins are the body's natural painkillers and they help you feel relaxed, alert and mobile. 

Releasing endorphins do more than just mask the pain. The stress relief from the endorphins, helps to relax the entire body, so that tense muscles which contribute to the pain are not longer a factor.

Acupuncture can also help if the pain is the result of a tight muscle or some tissue between muscles sticking together. If a patient doesn't have a lifestyle that aggravates this problem, then this tension tends to go away quickly, perhaps in as few as 1-2 treatments. Otherwise, acupuncture can work to prevent damage from overuse or repetitive strain until a patient can find ways to adjust.

Another point worth mentioning here is that acupuncture brings fresh blood to an area where a needle is inserted. The body is doing this to engage the immune system which will then deliver fresh blood to the area of the body that needs healing. This can speed recovery for tissue that is damaged like torn tendons, or that by its nature tends not to get much fresh blood, like cartilage.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can help ease a wide range of pain conditions such as:

  • Joint and Soft Tissue Repair
  • Neck and Shoulder injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Knee and Foot Injuries
  • Headaches
