Acupuncture for Pain Management

Are you looking for pain relief? Give acupuncture a try for your pain management in Austin,TX. 

Chances are you know someone who experiences either chronic or acute pain daily. According to Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, pain affects over 116 million Americans, and 31 million Americans experience back pain alone. Although acute pain is a normal sensation that is triggered by the nervous system to inform your body of a possible injury that may need more care, chronic pain is different. Chronic pain can persist because an injury never fully healed or because pain signals continue to fire in the nervous system.

ACUPUNCTURE & TCM CAN HELP 

Acupuncture sends signals to the brain to reevaluate the injury and turn off any pain receptors that are unnecessary. Acupuncture also relaxes muscles, increasing blood flow and bringing relief to tight or stressed tissues. 

According to the National Institute of Health, studies suggest that acupuncture works particularly well on chronic pain such as back and neck pain, knee pain, and headaches. It often reduces the incidence and severity of tension headaches and may prevent migraines. Unlike pharmaceutical pain-relievers, acupuncture is free of cumulative side effects and is completely non-addictive.
