Neurological diseases are disorders of the nervous system. They can manifest a series of symptoms due to abnormalities in nerve structure, biochemistry or electrophysiology in the brain, spinal cord, or other nerves. Most of them are related to injury or to aging, but all of them can be managed with Acupuncture treatment.

How does Acupuncture treat neurological disorders? It can inhibit the accumulation of toxic proteins in neurological diseases, modulate energy supply based on glucose metabolism, depress neuronal apoptosis, and promote a wide range of neuroprotective effects.
As a traditional alternative medical treatment, Acupuncture has been clinically proven to treat neurological diseases, especially neurodegenerative diseases.
How Acupuncture promotes neurological improvement.
Acupuncture plays a strong role in helping to slow the onset of neurological diseases and the effects that come with them. For example, regular Acupuncture for patients with Parkinson’s Disease can often bring tremors under control if not completely eliminate them.
Alzheimer’s is another neurological disorder that’s positively impacted by Acupuncture treatment. A Chinese study that measured verbal orientation and motor coordination in patients after a 30-day treatment regimen showed that patients’ cognitive level significantly improved.
Acupuncture can also create a much better long-term prognosis for such disorders. Regular Acupuncture sessions slow the progression of the disease and stave off common effects or symptoms for longer periods of time than what’s typically seen in patients who are treated with Acupuncture.
