Acute and Chronic Pain Management Using Acupuncture

Acute and Chronic Pain

Whether your pain is acute or chronic, living with pain can be debilitating.  Unlike pain medication and cortisone shots which only mask the issue, Acupuncture gets to the root of the problem and can heal the source of the pain.  How does Acupuncture do this?

First, acupuncture releases endorphins. These natural pain killers block pain sensation and reduce nerve inflammation without the harmful side effects of opiate drugs. The best part about Endorphins is that they produce a sense of well-being and calm which can help to reduce stress.
Secondly, Acupuncture for pain management in Berkeley CA increases circulation and relaxes muscles.

It helps microcirculation, inside and outside the cells, allowing for a healthier cellular state to exist. It increases blood flow to the muscles and breaks the cycle of muscle spasms.

Lastly, Acupuncture breaks up scar tissue and helps healing.  Post-surgical acupuncture stimulates blood flow to the site of the scar, promotes healing to the injured area and decreases the buildup of scar tissues.
