How can acupuncture help in pain management?
When it comes to the process of treating pain with the help of acupuncture it involves the insertion of fine needles on specific points of the body. The acupuncture specialist carefully inserts the needles in place to revive the flow of energy, or commonly called as 'Qi', in the body. This helps in relaxing the muscles, thereby reducing the pain. Stagnation of Qi can often lead to stress, pain, and lower energy levels. Acupuncture effectively restarts the flow of Qi and helps in speeding up the healing process. It also improves the flow of blood, which helps tone the muscles and relieves pain.
Another healthy benefit of acupuncture is that it activates the glands of the body to release the body's 'feel good' hormones. This, combined with traditional Chinese medicine and massage, is the best way to relieve both chronic and acute neck pain.
Acupuncture treatment, along with Chinese medical massage and cupping is found to be the best cure for neck pain. A trained acupuncture specialist establishes a customized treatment plan to suit your condition, which depends on the region of pain, the severity of pain, the cause and also the present medical condition.
