How does acupuncture work?
It’s been over two millennia, and traditional chinese medicine is still used today. Acupuncture is one of the oldest but most enduring methods of treatment in Chinese medicine. It’s enduring because of how natural it is and how effective it can be, effectively relieving pain and supporting the body’s natural systems.
In the practice of acupuncture, tiny harmless needles are used to stimulate particular points in the body, which can help to relieve pain in the area and possibly even treat some health conditions. The procedure can be very therapeutic for many patients, especially because it can release endorphins in the brain. These endorphins are neurotransmitters that are the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals, and that are associated with the runner’s high. Also, acupuncture may affect the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a brain chemical that affects mood. A session of acupuncture can effectively relieve pain. Chronic pain and chronic conditions may be treated too.
What conditions can be treated with acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been proven to work in many cases. Somewhat recently, one of the largest studies on acupuncture and chronic pain was done. The study concluded that acupuncture has been effective for many years in treating chronic pain. Today, researchers are conducting studies in acupuncture and depression, anxiety, and even some kinds of cancer.
Currently, acupuncture is used to relieve pain, improve mood, and improve mobility. Chronic pain can be addressed too. Also, acupuncture may help patients with:
- Postoperative pain
- Chronic headaches/migraines
- Joint pain
Also, acupuncture may work well as a supplemental treatment with other, conventional treatments like physical therapy. For example, acupuncture may help treat:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
- Hot flashes
- And possibly some other conditions
How quickly does acupuncture work?
This depends on what the acupuncture is treating. For an acute condition, it usually takes several sessions (8 to 12) for a patient to experience significant benefits. For a chronic condition, it typically takes one or two treatments a week over several months for a patient to experience the benefits. When you come see us here at Veritas Medical Center, our acupuncture specialist will help you determine the best course of treatment for you.
