Can I Manage My Pain With Acupuncture?
Riverside Pain Management Clinic uses acupuncture as the main therapy for all types of pain. There are an estimated 28 million people in the UK who suffer with pain in some form or another (Fayaz et al, 2016). Acupuncture is often the choice for many people who are looking for a solution to manage their pain.
What Pain-related Conditions can Acupuncture Help to Manage?
Acupuncture can be used to help relieve discomfort from conditions associated with a variety of pain. These can be dental pain, headaches, tension headaches, and migraines. Labour pain and lower back pain. Neck pain and menstrual cycle cramps as well as osteoarthritis.
Acupuncture may help relieve pain by releasing endorphins which are our natural pain-killing chemicals within the body. Our brain governs the levels of serotonin which is the chemical that is responsible for moods. Acupuncture can help improve these levels. We all respond to acupuncture and complementary health treatments in different ways. Some people may feel the benefit almost immediately, whilst others may feel the benefit after a few treatments.
