Choosing the right method to alleviate pain can be sometimes confusing and difficult. Unfortunately for many of us, the methods we choose can be unsatisfactory, expensive, and be the cause of additional adverse effects. Whether you are aware of it or not, most analgesic drugs in the health industry only focus on eliminating the sensation and perception of pain without targeting what is causing the pain.
There is however a very cost effective practice that has been around for well over 2000 years that has been treating all types of painful conditions since its inception. And would you believe that such a practice is either just around the corner or within a 10 minute drive away? This ancient healing art that we are talking about here is none other than the amazing art of acupuncture!
There is a multitude of modern scientific research today that supports the effectiveness of acupuncture for the treatment of many types of painful disorders including headaches, lower back pain, sciatica, arthritis, period pain and gastrointestinal pain. There is research that shows acupuncture assists with the recovery of all kinds of invasive surgeries and is beneficial for cancer patients.
Want to know something else that’s really cool about acupuncture? There’s no side or adverse effects! Other than feeling great after a treatment, there’s nothing at all. What’s more important, acupuncture has close to no risks of affecting or interfering with medications. Acupuncture also focuses on treating the cause of the pain and the reason why it is happening not just the pain itself. In this way acupuncture is able to stop pain coming back rather than just trying to mask the problem.
