When you have pain from any type of condition, injury, or accident, there are several types of pain relief, and often more than one option is used to help combat pain. Acupuncture is a pain relief method that is often used. It can be used on its own or as an additional therapy alongside other methods. Getting chiropractic care can also be helpful or you can get acupuncture at our chiropractor’s office. If you are experiencing pain and live in or around Danbury or Brookfield, contact Integrated Health & Wellness LLC to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bailey.
Acupuncture is a great way to control pain and to do so without medications that can lead to addiction. The process uses many tiny needles and can significantly reduce pain. You may need regular sessions with our chiropractor to get the relief you need for your chronic pain. It's a helpful therapy to use for post-surgical pain, after accidents, painful medical conditions, and more. It has been used for thousands of years for pain relief and it's been found to be highly effective.
When you go to the office for an acupuncture session, you will lie down comfortably for your session. Then, very thin needles are placed in specific areas and pressed shallowly into the skin. These needles are very small and your discomfort should be minimal. The needles are administered to an area that corresponds with the area that has pain. Once the needles have been set into place, they will be activated with one of several activation methods. This may be with hand motions or another way such as electrical stimulation.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
There are many pathways throughout the body for life energy to flow and blockages in those pathways can cause pain and health problems. Acupuncture has long been used to break up those blockages and restore the flow of energy along the pathways. Today, we also know that when you get acupuncture, it causes your body to release more of its natural pain-fighting substances. This allows your pain to be relieved naturally instead of with harsh treatments like surgery or medication.
