The most common reason why people explore acupuncture is for pain. There is a good reason why. Acupuncture is fast and effective for pain relief, and it’s a safe drug -free option to reduce pain.

People looking for pain relief also quickly discover that acupuncture can work in conjunction with other treatments without adding to the list of side effects of pain medication. This is a significanly huge benenfit. Every working with pain, every little bit helps.

But how does acupuncture treat pain?

Research has demonstrated through MRI’s that there is a connection between nerve function and acupuncture points. These acupuncture points stimulate neural pathways which sends signals to the brain such as endorphins and other natural painkillers, controlling blood vessels and organs, muscles and the nerves, thereby reducing inflammation the pain naturally.

A recent study printed in JAMA Internal Medicine on acupuncture concluded: “Acupuncture is affective for the treatment of chronic pain and is therefore a reasonablereferral option. Significant differences between true and sham acupuncture indicate that acupuncture is more than a placebo”

Acupuncture is a very effective non-drug treatment for both acute and chronic pain. In over 85 % of the patient we treat at the center for pain there is significant improvement without being reliant on pain medications or surgery.
