Millions of Americans suffer from pain that is chronic, severe, and not easily managed. Pain from arthritis, back problems, other musculoskeletal conditions, and headache costs U.S. businesses more than $61 billion a year in lost worker productivity.
Estimated more than 100 million Americans suffering from some types of chronic pain everyday but are not receiving the treatment they need. Many fall between the cracks in their own private health insurance, workman’s compensation, and disability benefits. Others are simply helpless because of a lack of health insurance. The common thread is the lack of appropriate treatment for chronic pain.
Chronic pain whether it be sciatica that runs down your leg causing numbness and tingling sensation, neck and shoulder pain that aches when you try to turn your head around, or knee pain that’s making it very difficult to even stand, acupuncture can be very effective in eleviating the pain and improving the healing process.
What Acupuncture Can Do For Your Pain:
There are many theories behind how acupuncture treats the pain. Some believe it’s related to the nerve pathway, some is convinced that it has to do with collagen fibers. The easiest way to explain is that acupuncture removes the blockage in the body which is causing the pain. Unless it’s a structural change such as spinal deformity due to external injuries, in most cases acupuncture can ease the pain by removing the blockage. Due to improper body posture, lack of exercises and sometimes as a result of the repetitive movement, pain occurs. Pain causes local swelling and forms an internal blockage similarly to a roadblock on the highway. Acupuncture when done correctly, can remove the blockage almost immediately, thus the pain and swelling. No matter acute or chornic, most people experience very positive improvement even after 1 or 2 sessions.
