Acupuncture Orlando for Chronic Pain

Care try using acupuncture Orlando for chronic debilitating such as arthritis?  Are there any risks in using it?

Despite incredible leaps in medical technology and pharmaceutical inventions, there is really no cure-all treatment for chronic pain.  This may be so because chronic pain not only affects the physical aspect of the person but his mental and emotional as well, affecting also his loved ones in a negative way.

Because of its great ability to negatively affect a person’s life, treatment for chronic pain involves a multidisciplinary approach that specifically caters to each individual’s concern.  This approach often involves a teaming up of drug and other kinds of non-drug therapies. The latter may include acupuncture, cognitive behavioral therapy, massage, biofeedback, physical treatment exercise, chiropractic treatments and osteopathic manipulative therapy.

Acupuncture has been around for greater than two hundred centuries in China and other parts of Asia; however, it seems to be taken with a grain of salt by Western medical science.  Still, the rest of the world has fully endorsed its healing potency in the form of the World Health(Wellness) Organization which officially stated that acupuncture is a very qualified as a treatment for over 40 healthcare conditions, including chronic pain.  Not wanting to look silly, the United States in the form of the National Institutes of Health agreed with the World Health(Wellness) Organization in acupuncture’s role as an effective treatment for many types of health problems especially pain management.

Acupuncture actually does not really “cure” a health problem but it does initiate physiological and biochemical processes in the body that allows the body to correct itself.  Also, each person reacts to acupuncture treatment in different kinds of ways, which means acupuncture may or may not be effective for certain types of people.  Here is a list of the chronic painful conditions that acupuncture has been shown to help ease:

  • Post-surgical pain
  • Degenerative arthritis of the joints
  • Low back and cervical pain
  • Pelvic discomfort
  • Migraine headaches
  • Tooth pain
  • Fibromyalgia and soft-tissue pain
  • Lateral Epicondylitis

Under the hands of a licensed and experienced acupuncturist, acupuncture treatment is a very safe treatment that is not painful at all.  At the most a slight sensation may be felt when the needles are inserted into the skin.  Also, make sure you go to an acupuncturist who uses disposable single use sterilized needles to avoid cross infection.

If Chinese herbal medicine is used with acupuncture make sure that the herbalist is licensed and preferably uses brand name products that include UPC certification on the label so you may be sure that the herbs in the formula are exactly what is listed on the label.  Taking these certain measures helps prevent any unexpected problems that may arise using the wrong herbs for your chronic pain condition.
