What’s the most common ailment in America treated by Acupuncture? Pain. It’s no wonder that Acupuncture and pain management go hand in hand. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), a number of studies suggest Acupuncture is particularly effective for treating chronic pain such as back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, and headaches.
Natural, non-invasive pain management.
Acupuncture is a great and viable alternative to taking pain medications. You can embrace natural pain relief without the risk of becoming addicted to medication, or without functioning through your daily life feeling groggy or cloudy with no relief in sight.
Through a number of consecutive weekly treatments, pain levels for issues ranging from musculoskeletal to neuropathy can be addressed and quite often greatly reduced if not completely resolved.
For tendon and muscular injuries, Acupuncture can have a two-fold effect. Not only can it help address the pain issues; it increases circulation and blood flow to injured areas which reduces healing time in some cases by up to 33 percent!
How often should you get Acupuncture for pain management?
Every pain condition is different for every individual. While one treatment can greatly reduce your pain, it likely will not completely alleviate it with just one treatment. The usual course of treatment is one or two sessions per week for five to six weeks. It’s best to discuss treatment options with a 7 Stones professional, as well as your physician.
