Benefits of Acupuncture for Neck and Back Pain
Here at Health Advantage Physical Medicine of Pasadena, we specialize in chiropractic care that is aimed at relieving pain and reducing symptoms related to neck and back injuries and disorders. One way in which we help our clients find the relief they are looking for is with an integrated care approach that utilizes the power of acupuncture. This procedure has been used for centuries for pain relief and many benefits can be enjoyed from using acupuncture for neck and back pain. Here are some of the most common that our clients see after just a few sessions:
The biggest complaint we get from clients when they first come to us is that they are in pain. Acupuncture allows us to address specific trigger points that can cause pain, without the need for medications that can be addictive or cause side effects or the need for potentially dangerous surgical procedures. Acupuncture has been used for centuries as a safe and effective way to reduce pain and is becoming a common tool for chiropractors who understand the practice.
Acupuncture has been shown to stimulate special areas within the body and can help reduce the inflammation that is causing compressed nerves and other issues with the neck and back. Many of our clients have been living with neck and back pain for much of their adult lives when they first come to us. Some have tried medications and surgeries, only to still be dealing with the painful inflammation. Acupuncture can reduce inflammation and related pain quickly and safely.
A common side effect to neck and back pain is a significant reduction in a person’s ability to move. Pain that affects the back and neck affects the entire body because it is the spine that controls all mobility and nerve control throughout the body. Acupuncture can help get individuals on their feet quickly and safely by reducing pain and providing them with greater mobility and stamina and strength so they can get back to their everyday lives.
The final benefit that our clients can enjoy when they come to Health Advantage Physical Medicine is much faster healing following an injury or surgical procedure. Acupuncture stimulated trigger points in the body and can be used to improve blood flow, lymphatic system function, hormone release, cell regeneration, and other important responses that can help an individual recover faster. It also helps them stay healthier for longer periods.
