Acupuncture may offer the relief you have been looking for.  Proven as an effective means of treating all kinds of pain, acupuncture can be a safe and natural alternative or addition to Western medical treatment.  It can reduce both pain and swelling and is successful in treating pain no matter where it is in the body and whether it is acute or chronic.  If you have an old injury that never properly healed, a new injury, a recent surgery, or muscle tension, acupuncture can help.  It increases the circulation of blood and other important fluids, bringing nutrients and oxygen to the area of pain or tension, stimulates nerve activity, and relaxes muscles and tendons, all leading to a reduction in both pain and inflammation.

Currently, a significant body of evidence is being amassed on the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of pain.  In countries around the world, large, rigorously designed clinical trials are being carried out and positive conclusions are being drawn.  In one of these trials, clinically significant data showed that acupuncture and electroacupuncture were effective in the treatment of lower back pain. Based on this evidence, NICE (National Institute for Heath and Care Excellence) added acupuncture to the NICE Guidelines, recommending it as an effective means of treating lower back pain, and these recommendations are also noted on the NHS Choices website.  In America, there was another large randomised control trial for acupuncture in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis.  Once again, clinically significant data showed that acupuncture effectively reduced pain and improved physical function of the knee.

The above clinical trials are two amongst many.   Listed on the NLM website (National Library of Medicine), the primary medical resource of the United States government, are reports from other trials evaluating acupuncture’s effect on specific conditions:  Neck PainChronic Neck Pain, Chronic Neck and Shoulder Pain, Tennis Elbow, Ankle Pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Gouty Arthritis, Knee and Hip Arthritis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, Peripheral Diabetic Neuropathy, Shoulder Pain, Chronic Shoulder Pain, Frozen Shoulder, Sore Throat, Sciatica, Fibromyalsia, Period Pain, and Bell’s Palsy. Acupuncture is also recommended by Arthritis Research UK and the Arthritis Foundation as an effective and safe means of treating arthritic pain, and in a recent review by the Harvard Medical School, acupuncture has been found effective in the general treatment of Chronic Pain.

Whatever kind of pain you have, acupuncture can help, and when you come for treatment, several approaches are used, including a special method developed by Dr. Richard Tan, one of the foremost experts in the field of acupuncture for pain relief and management.  His extraordinary approach leads to an immediate reduction in pain, attaining clinical results within minutes after treatment has begun. With this method along with other treatment modalities (electroacupuncture, cupping, moxa and tui na), exceptional results can generally be achieved within one to six treatments, where the pain is either significantly diminished or alleviated altogether.

With nerve conditions (such as sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, trigeminal neuralgia, multiple sclerosis and others), involving numbness, pins and needles, and nerve pain, a modality called electroacupuncture is often used and to great effect.  Nearly any area of the body can be treated, including arms, legs, back, face, hands, feet, fingers and toes, and this modality is safe and relaxing.  It has been proven effective in relieving nerve-related pain and discomfort and in reducing and often times eliminating numbness altogether.

If you are tired of living with issues like pain, swelling, numbness, or weakness in your joints or muscles then acupuncture may be your solution.  It offers very potent and effective relief, and you will find that no matter what kind of pain or discomfort you have, acupuncture can help.
