Pain Management with Acupuncture
Traditional Chinese Medicine can help with all types of pain. Acupuncture works by stimulating the nerve endings in painful tissue. This stimulation releases chemicals that enhance blood flow, nutrients, and oxygen in areas painful to relieve pain and relax knotted muscles. Acupuncture is known to boost endogenous opiates and release corticosteroids into the bloodstream in order to reduce pain, inflammation, and accelerate the healing process. Cupping and gua sha increase blood circulation to a body area, draw waste material out of painful tissue, and trigger the tissue's self-repair mechanisms. Below are a few pain conditions commonly treated with acupuncture:
Muscle pain is a sign of dysfunction in the body's soft tissues. This dysfunction can be affect one or more of the muscles in the body. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine increases blood flow to a painful area, and promotes our bodies natural healing ability in order to alleviate pain and the root cause if the pain.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMD)
The temporomandibular joint is a joint that connects the skull to the jaw. When it gets inflamed, it can cause pain and poor muscle control in the joints of the jaw. Acupuncture and Traditional Chine Medicine can decrease inflammation and promote healing in this joint. This will increase muscle control, improve joint function, and alleviate pain.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when the nerve that runs down the forearm into the palm of the hand becomes pressed or squeezed by surrounding tissues. This can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help relieve this pain and decompress the median nerve.
