Pain Affects Your Quality of Life
At HopeSpring Wellness, we specialize in acupuncture for pain management because we understand that chronic pain is a global problem. Acupuncture for pain management uses the notion that energy known as Qi flows through the meridians (energy pathways) in the body.
Many adults experience chronic pain. There are three common chronic pain sources:
Migraine (severe headache)
Low back pain
Chronic pain, whether it be sciatica that runs down your leg causing numbness and tingling sensation, neck or shoulder pain that aches when you try to turn your head around, or knee pain that is making it very difficult to stand, acupuncture can be very effective in alleviating the pain and improving the healing process.
The effects of chronic pain may trickle down to impact other areas of your life. Chronic pain may make it difficult to sleep, making it difficult to have enough energy to complete the necessary activities in daily life. This may even lead to impacts on your ability to work, causing financial strain or difficulties.
Why Choose Acupuncture for Pain Management?
Most doctors prescribe medications as the first line of chronic pain treatment. However, this may not be the preferred treatment method or an effective method for all individuals. But acupuncture is effective in reducing pain, which is the main reason it has gained worldwide popularity. Acupuncture is effective for the following conditions:
Acute pain that does not respond to painkillers
Chronic lower back or headache pain
Musculoskeletal pain, such as osteoarthritis
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture has been proven to be effective in activating the body’s natural opioids and enhancing the brain’s reaction to those opioids. Other pain reduction hormones, including adenosine, are also released and regulated during acupuncture stimulation.
Our acupuncture treatment is based on traditional Chinese methods, western methods, and a combination of the two techniques. You will discuss with our experts to choose the points you want to be stimulated. A typical acupuncture session lasts for 45 minutes to 1 hour, and most patients require regular sessions to achieve and maintain the best results.
