Do you have pain, limited range of motion and are unable to do the things you once did? Acupuncture can decrease inflammation which causes pain, allowing you to move better and can improve your quality of life. Acupuncture can help manage many forms of acute and chronic pain. Acupuncture can be the first course of treatment for pain but if you’ve tried everything else, acupuncture can still help.
Migraines and Headaches
Migraines can be debilitating and can range from a slight aura and pain, to extreme pain accompanied with nausea, vomiting and the inability to tolerate light. Chinese medicine diagnosing looks at the root cause of the migraines and the accompanying signs and symptoms to determine the cause and may help decrease the frequency and intensity of the migraines.
Headaches can be located anywhere along the head, from the back of the neck to the top of the head, behind the eyes or the temples. The pain can be sharp, shooting, dull and achy or tingly. All of these factors help to determine the cause and with treatment can help prevent the onset by correcting the imbalance in your body.
Facial Pain and Bell’s palsy
Sinusitis, Trigeminal neuralgia, eye pain and Bell’s palsy are in this category. Acupuncture needles are placed around the face and can help sinuses drain better, decrease inflammation on facial nerves thereby decreasing pain, as well as improve mobility of facial muscles as in the case of bell’s palsy.
Neck and Back pain
Acupuncture can be used to help decrease tension and improve blood flow to the back muscles as well as the spine which helps to treat acute and chronic back pain. Falls or car accidents cause acute back and neck pain; sitting at a computer or standing for long periods can cause muscle tension on our back and neck area, and over long periods this can cause chronic neck and back pain.
Perimenopausal symptoms and Premenstrual pain (PMS)
Perimenopausal symptoms include hot flashes, insomnia, mood changes and irregular periods. While these are normal, naturally occurring symptoms, acupuncture can reduce the severity of them, improving your quality of life, quality of sleep and improving everyday activities.
Premenstrual symptoms can begin a week before a period begins and can include, breast distension, acne, abdominal cramps, headaches and migraines, irritability and moodiness, insomnia and much more. Acupuncture can decrease and may eliminate these symptoms allowing for a better menstrual flow, lessened PMS symptoms and better hormonal balance.
Repetitive Strain Injuries
Carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, golfers elbow are all injuries of the muscle that are overworked and the muscles become inflamed restrict movement and cause pain. Acupuncture helps to promote more blood flow to these inflamed muscles, this allows the body to heal the inflammation, restoring mobility and reducing pain.
Stress, Anxiety and Insomnia
Stress is the underlying cause of many diseases; anxiety can be mild or debilitating and both can cause insomnia. Acupuncture can effectively calm the mind and balance the underlying condition of the body allowing for a reduction in stress and anxiety and can improve sleep.
Diarrhea, Constipation and Abdominal Bloating
