Acupuncture for Pain - Benefits of Acupuncture
North Shore Acupuncture and Natural Medicine
Beverly, MA Acupuncture Clinic
According to the National Institutes of Health there are a number of evidence based studies that suggest that acupuncture is beneficial for pain conditions.
Acupuncture works by applying hair-thin needles to acupuncture points to release or redirect the energy or Qi. Blockages or incorrectly positioned Qi cause illness or pain. The illness or pain can be acute or chronic in nature. Typically, the more acute the illness or pain the less acupuncture treatments are needed to resolve the issue. On the other hand, if you have been suffering from issues such as, chronic low back pain or chronic knee pain, expect that there will be a need for additional acupuncture treatments for the symptoms to completely resolve. Do not let the extended treatment plan discourage you from receiving acupuncture treatment. There are evidence based research studies to show that pain relief occurs even after one acupuncture treatment.
Whether you are suffering from acute or chronic illness/pain, North Shore Acupuncture and Natural Medicine has acupuncture treatments to provide relief from symptoms that have been lowering your quality of life. Call us today to learn about the benefits of acupuncture!
