Pain Management Clinic Houston
Pain is triggered by the nervous system and can vary in intensity and location. Many people experience pain and most use over the counter drugs such as asprin, ibuprofen, etc. to relieve pain. Although these drugs can be effective in providing relief, they often have side effects and do not support long-term relief. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to pain management and treats the cause, not just the symptom.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest practices in the world and has successfully been used to treat pain for thousands of years. It is used to regulate the flow of qi (vital energy) along the body’s different meridians. By moving energy throughout the body, acupuncture can reduce pain and increase function and movement.
It is often found that acupuncture alone will be enough to manage pain, but it can also be a great adjunct form of care.
Acupuncture has been studied and proven extremely effective in treating a wide range of pain including:
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Neck pain
- Dental pain
- Menstrual pain
- Tennis elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
