Acupuncture: Needle-Based Stimulation for Pain Relief
Most of us have heard of acupuncture, but may not be convinced of its healing properties. After all, needles are known to cause pain; how can they relieve it? While acupuncture may feel a bit different from what you are used to, it has a special way of restoring balance and health to your body. Active Physical Medicine of Rancho Cucamonga, CA offers acupuncture to patients who have suffered from headaches and other chronic conditions and are looking for non-medicinal relief.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture typically involves the use of thin needles inserted into the skin. Magnets, lasers, and electrical pulses may be used as well. The purpose of these needles is to stimulate the invisible meridians that run through the body. Each meridian is connected to a channel. Sometimes these channels are blocked, and that's why we experience pain. The needle can unblock the channel and allow energy to flow through. As a result, body function returns to normal. You are also less likely to get sick.
What is it Good For?
Acupuncture can heal the following conditions:
- Back, neck and joint pain
- Post-operative pain
- Headaches and migraines
