At our Springfield practice of Back and Body, we have just announced our new service there, acupuncture. It’s available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays if you’re ever in the Springfield area and want to try it there. Here at our New York practice, it’s something that we’ve offered for many years now, but with the new service in NJ, thought it would be a good time to go over the benefits that acupuncture has to offer.
As many may know, acupuncture goes way back to the ancient Chinese days and has been used on millions of people throughout the ages. While studies are still ongoing as to why and how it works, it has and continues to help many different people in pain or discomfort.
It is the process of applying thin needles at strategic points throughout the body and at varying depths which are then thought to stimulate the nerves and increase blood flow which in turn promotes healing.
The most common symptoms that it is said to help with are pain points such as back pain, neck pain, sciatica, headaches and symptoms such as that. It can also help with other areas of health and well being such as blood pressure, fibromyalgia, arthritis, dental pain, stroke risk reduction, gastric issues and certain sicknesses.
The treatment is still being researched and controlled studies setup to fully understand how it helps. Over time, this research will not only provide these answers but also discover new and great ways to help with a patient’s pain and well being. And of course, it is natural, no medication needed, thus fewer side effects.
