Have you ever tried acupuncture to treat a pinched nerve?
For those suffering from chronic neck pain, and for those who receive little relief from drug induced pain medications that don’t seem to help with the pain, alternative therapies are readily available such as acupuncture.
There are many people who have benefited from this therapy. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese therapy that relieves pain by correcting the flow of energy in the body through the pathways that have been damaged. Acupuncture is performed by a qualified acupuncturist through the use of small harmless needles inserted into the pathways (acupuncture points).
Acupuncture / Acupressure For A Pinched Nerve
Acupuncture and acupressure have been used with great success for the treatment of pinched nerves. Either of these acupuncture methods release the block of energy flow in the meridian channel where swelling and inflammation can build up resulting in the compression of a nerve. It is unbelievable how many people in Canada suffer from pinches nerves each day while on the job.
It has been reported by professional acupuncturists in Canada, that the release of this blockage, will allow the flow of the energy in the tissues surrounding the pinched nerve area resulting in the relaxation of the nerve. Sometimes, another process called cupping (combined with acupuncture) may be used for complete relief from pain due to a pinched nerve.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the process of inserting tiny (very thin) needles into specific points in the body, called meridians. These meridians actually correspond to different parts of the body, including the nervous and lymphatic systems.
A qualified acupuncturist will tell you that penetration of these points will unlock the body’s flow of energy and help with the immune system aiding in promoting good health and healing. Though acupuncture is sometimes controversial, and seen as an alternative medical procedure, many patients with pinched nerves can experience relief only after a few acupuncture sessions.
What Else Can Acupuncture Help With?
The National Institutes of Health, back in 1997, approved acupuncture for all kinds of pain condition and diseases. Some of the things that acupuncture can help with are addiction, carpal tunnel syndrome, asthma, chronic neck pain, pinched nerves, and menstrual cramps.
Now in 2015, acupuncture has come along way in the treatment of PTSD, lower back pain, Parkinson’s disease, and has been written about in dozens of new studies each year. Dozens of general practitioners (doctors) in Canada have now incorporated acupuncture into their practices with amazing results.
