ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT

Acupuncture is a centuries-old practice that is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). However, it did not become popular or even known in Western medicine until the early 1970s. Since then, numerous respected medical organizations like the National Institute of Health (NIH) have said acupuncture is an acceptable and reasonable option for people who have chronic pain.

There are several studies suggesting that acupuncture is a particularly effective treatment for specific types of chronic pain, including pain from osteoarthritis, back and neck pain, and even chronic migraine pain. Patients who have frequent tension headaches often find that regular preventative acupuncture treatments reduce the number of headache days they experience as well as the severity of their headaches. Practical Pain Management, a respected journal, published a review article showing measurable and undeniable evidence that acupuncture helps to regulate endorphins in the body.

ACUPUNCTURE FOR NECK PAIN

Most patients who have chronic pain issues will see their acupuncturist (or acupuncture specialist) regularly, even if their symptoms have gotten better, in order to maintain their overall sense of wellness. The frequency with which patients should undergo acupuncture depends on their own unique situations. Those who have very severe and currently unmanaged chronic pain may need acupuncture as often as twice a week; those who have found relief from acupuncture and other treatments may return to their acupuncturist only once a month.

Each state has different licensing requirements for acupuncturists, so be sure to understand the laws in your state before making an appointment. Most states require this certification, and their online tool will help you search for certified providers in your area – or even verify that the provider you have chosen has the required certifications.
