Acupuncture

Safe, alternative pain relief options. Our Certified Acupuncturist provides relief for back pain and many other conditions.

ABOUT ACUPUNCTURE FOR PAIN RELIEF

Acupuncture is a traditional form of Chinese medicine used to help alleviate back pain, neck pain and many other pain conditions. Acupuncture is offered at The Spine & Rehab Group, often in combination with other non-surgical treatment options for pain management and recovery, most commonly for back and neck pain or injury.

Acupuncture works by stimulating the nervous system and promoting a feeling of relaxation. In a typical Acupuncture session sterile, hair-thin needles are inserted into the body by a Certified Acupuncturist for anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. Due to the thinness of Acupuncture needles, pain is not often experienced during an Acupuncture session.

Acupuncture has been recommended by the American Pain Society as an effective alternative treatment for pain relief, especially low back pain.

THE EFFECT OF ACUPUNCTURE ON BACK PAIN AND OTHER PAIN CONDITIONS

An Acupuncture session not only reduces a person’s stress level, but also physically works to reduce pain. Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system which is responsible for the release of chemicals.

Important natural chemicals released during Acupuncture are opioid peptides, or amino acids that promote pain relief naturally. Acupuncture also promotes endorphins, or neurotransmitters to the brain, which changes the brain’s perception of pain
