Acupuncture Davis for pain relief is one of the most popular and potent forms of treatment for various kinds of pain (acute, chronic or non-chronic). This part of traditional Chinese medicine have been around for thousands of years providing the Chinese people with answers and relief from their disorders and various health needs. One of the ways acupuncture helps the person is by restoring energy balance to the body after a blockage of the energy causes weakness and sicknesses due to the energy deficiency in some major organs caused by the blockage. Acupuncture for the removal or complete relief of pain is very effective in treating chronic joint pain as well as chronic arthritis pain. How acupuncture effectively neutralizes these types of pain is by stimulating the brain to produce and release beneficial chemicals such as endorphins, enkephalins, etc.; the body’s own painkillers to neutralize the painful and distressful sensations and replace them with a feeling of tranquility and comfort.
Acupuncture uses hair thin, stainless steel, sterilized, new and disposable needles that may cause a slight tingling but fleeting sensation as they are inserted in the skin that are replaced by a feeling of tranquility and relaxation after a little while. Depending on the severity of the pain, treatment sessions may merely entail a few visits to up to two or three visits a week for many months. A typical treatment session usually lasts 30 to 40 minutes. Severe knee and back pain is no problem when it is treated with acupuncture. Acupuncture is a very potent analgesic. In fact, it is sometimes used as an analgesic for surgeries where the patient needs to remain conscious during the course of the surgery. Apart from its effectiveness in treating all sorts of pain, acupuncture can effectively treat extreme emotional problems such as stress, anxiety and depression. With acupuncture, pressure and pain on the nerves are mitigated causing the stiff muscles to loosen up and relax helping thus to improve blood circulation in that area of the body.
Acupuncture is also used for the treatment of nausea, behavioral and chemical addictions, respiratory and digestive problems and for bladder disorders as well as for arthritis and migraine headaches.
Acupuncture is hands down the best treatment for pain relief. Unlike medications, it does not have any side effects and besides removing pain, helps the body revitalize itself. It has treated innumerable cases of pain of unknown origin. This type of pain is usually chronic in nature since pain of unknown origin is a prolonged condition addressed superficially with painkillers that work for mere hours and eventually lead to renal and liver problems. Acupuncture effectively addresses this type of pain if not on a permanent basis, at least on a long-term basis.
