acupuncture-img2What the Science Says about Acupuncture

Research has found that acupuncture does a variety of great things for healing, including releasing endorphins, increasing immunity, increasing circulation of lymph and blood, and relaxing muscles–all of which produce a perfect environment for the body to heal on its own.

Acupuncture has been widely studied as a means for treating an extensive array of pain conditions. Some of these include carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, headache, low-back pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, and tennis elbow.

Although people use acupuncture for various types of pain, back pain is the most commonly reported use, followed by joint pain, neck pain, and headache. Acupuncture is considered safe when performed correctly.

acupuncture-img3Side Effects and Risks of Acupuncture

Like all other medical treatments, acupuncture has side effects and risks. However, acupuncture is considered safe and FDA approved when performed by an experienced and liscenced practitioner using sterile needles. Relatively few complications from acupuncture have been reported, and serious adverse events related to acupuncture are rare. Additionally, there are fewer adverse effects associated with acupuncture than with many standard drug treatments (such as anti-inflammatory medication and steroid injections) used to manage painful musculoskeletal conditions.
