Acupuncture for Pain Management
Pain can be felt in many different sensations such as sharp/stabbing, dull achy, burning, etc. The fact is whatever kind of pain we’re feeling, we don't want it!
In Chinese Medicine, pain is due to a blockage of qi and blood or some type of imbalance in the meridian pathways. Acupuncture not only helps alleviate the pain but can also help restore function and reduce swelling. Acupuncture does this by breaking through the blockages and guide the qi and blood in the right direction to help bring the body back into a balanced state.
When you come to DeCicco Acupuncture your practitioner will go through a proper intake and evaluation to determine where the imbalance lies and will work with you to correct it.
Pain Management Benefits of Acupuncture
Rather than turning to opioids or regular overuse of over-the-counter pain medicines, the release of qi and rebalancing the meridian pathways can give the body back its ability to function and heal normally. But you don’t have to take our word for it; the more studies that are done on acupuncture, the more research reaffirms its benefits for both the mind and body.
The National Institute of Health has aggregated several studies over the years regarding the use of acupuncture for the purpose of pain management. The results of these studies have shown that acupuncture is particularly effective for chronic pain management issues such as back pain and osteoarthritis. Acupuncture is also well known for its relief of pain for tension headaches and migraine prevention. In addition, research funded by the NCCIH (National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health) is currently underway to study acupuncture for reducing the prevalence of menstrual pain and for reducing symptoms related to chemotherapy. Acupuncture studies can be found on the NIH website, nccih.nih.gov.
