Acupuncture Works for Chronic Pain
Growing numbers of Canadian have sought out acupuncture for chronic pain issues as well as for the treatment of other health issues such as migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, PTSD, anxiety, and insomnia. Acupuncture is now a common treatment for sports injuries, workplace injuries, and everyday pain symptoms.
Recent technology studies have revealed the biological mysteries of this 2000 year old medical mystery. Researchers are now closer to understanding how the acupuncture needle can adjust the body’s nerves and tissues to create a better lifestyle for most Canadians. The NIH and the World Health Organization (WHO) have formally approved the use of acupuncture as a recent treatment for chronic pain.
Chronic pain in the joints and muscles can certainly make life miserable. Most people have sought out alternate treatments like ice and heat, as well as certain anti-inflammatory medications, and physical therapy to no avail, only to discover that the only thing that works for them for pain relief is acupuncture. As a result in 2015, acupuncture for pain is deemed a common practice in Red Deer, Alberta, and most folks are lining up in numbers to give it a try.
How Does Acupuncture Relieve Pain?
Acupuncturists like Dr Arlo Chinnery of the Red Deer Acupuncture Clinic, insert hair thin needles into the skin at specific points in the body. This painless treatment for chronic pain should only be performed by an experienced practitioner like Dr Chinnery.
Insertion of the needles is thought to correct imbalances in the flow of energy in the body often called the qi ( pronounced“chee”). According to most medical journals on the subject, acupuncture is thought to ease pain in certain areas of the body by affecting neurotransmitters (nerve endings), hormone levels, or the immune system.
