How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is a therapy service used to relieve pain and pressure. Needles are inserted into trigger points, which are tender or painful points on the body caused by a blocked energy pathway. The needle is then maneuvered to appropriately hit a certain part of that point to release that pressure for therapeutic purposes. Acupuncture can release the tight muscle bands, decrease pain, and improve function. The utilization of pressure on specific trigger points is a way to manipulate the soft tissue of the body to relieve pain and balance the nervous system.

Relief From Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of physical therapy that helps to relax overactive muscles that have become extremely tight and may have begun to spasm. Acupuncture is commonly used for the treatment of myofascial pain and dysfunction. Myofascial pain is a chronic pain disorder where pressure on one point of your body can trigger pain in a completely unrelated area of your body. Your body will refer pain through other areas of your body. To find relief, you have to release the pressure off of the trigger points. This allows a reduction of pain and restores normal length and function to the muscle being treated. Acupuncture procedures do just that. Don’t let your chronic pain pester you any longer.
