How Does Acupuncture Relieve Pain (What’s the Science behind it)?
Acupuncture works on pain by lowering inflammation and by moving stuck “Qi” energy or circulation which has become blocked, usually by injury or trauma. Improved circulation brings blood and nourishment to the stagnant, injured tissues.
Pain is relieved by stimulation of specific acupuncture points on specific meridian energy pathways (similar to nerve pathways). This prompts nerve fibers in the extremities (where points were stimulated) to communicate with the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland.
Acupuncture Treats Pain by Treating the Root Cause of the Pain so that the pain does not return. Acupuncture differs from pain medication in that it is not necessary to continue once symptoms have subsided.
Warning Signs After Head/ Neck/ Back Injury (When to See a Doctor):
- Severe Headache with Stiff Neck and Flu-like symptoms. This could be Meningitis. Meningitis is a medical emergency as brain damage (with possible vision loss, hearing loss) may become permanent and may even result in death.
- Any sudden, severe headaches or pain
- Neurological symptoms such as sudden loss of sensation
- Any time concussion or Traumatic Brain Injury is suspected
Whether due to a rear-end collision or head-on impact collision, injury from long ago (chronic pain) or more recent-onset injury (acute pain), acupuncture can help relieve the pain to help you return to your life again.
Acupuncture is non-invasive, unlike surgery and non-habit forming, unlike pain medications. Acupuncture is a great alternative treatment for pain relief.
