Acupuncture may help reduce stress and ease pain associated with certain conditions. Acupuncture may be useful when included in an integrative pain management program. Ask your doctor whether it's right for you.
Intro to Acupuncture
During acupuncture very thin needles are lightly inserted into your skin. Acupuncture has been studied for its benefits with many types of pain. Acupuncturists believe it corrects energy imbalances in the body.
Acupuncture may be a useful treatment for many pain-related conditions, including:
* Low back pain
* Menstrual cramps
* Myofascial pain
* Osteoarthritis (especially of the knee)
Western doctors believe acupuncture stimulates natural chemicals in your body called endorphins that block pain signals.
Acupuncture may be used as an integrative treatment for headache, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, low back pain and side effects from cancer treatment.
According to Chinese traditional medicine, acupuncture affects the life force called "chi." More than 2000 acupuncture points in the body are connected by meridians, or pathways, through which energy must pass freely.
