Those Who Suffer from Pain Should Consider “Contemporary Medical Acupuncture” and Here’s Why.

  • Do you suffer from headaches, back pain, sciatica, pinched nerves, neck pain or other chronic pain issues?
  • Have you tried other pain treatment options that either didn’t work or simply mask the pain?
  • Are you experiencing change of life conditions associated with hormones or metabolic issues?

Many of our clients are a bit apprehensive of acupuncture at first.

This apprehension is partially due to the metaphysical association with the word acupuncture.
At Chiropractic Associates of Port Colborne, we take a scientific approach to acupuncture, specially defined as, “Contemporary Medical Acupuncture.”

The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of muscular and neurological conditions, digestive, respiratory, urinary, menstrual and reproductive organs. Other benefits include restoring function to the musculoskeletal system, increasing blood flow to specific areas of the body, normalizing communication within the nervous system, stress and anxiety relief through neurochemical release among many others.

Specific Benefits of Contemporary Medical Acupuncture include, but certainly not limited to:

  • Acupuncture promotes healing and improves body function by the insertion of ultra-thin needles in very precise points on the body. Unlike a hypodermic needle that cuts the tissue, these needles simply part the tissue, so it’s essentially painless.
  • The goals of medical acupuncture treatment are to provide clinical improvement of your condition and symptoms through the activation of the body’s natural pain control and healing mechanisms.
  • The modern scientific explanation is the needling of the points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals and hormones in the brain, spinal cord and muscles.
  • Considerable evidence has found that acupuncture initiates the release of the body’s natural pain control chemicals, opioid peptides, which create an analgesic effect. It does not just ‘mask’ the pain.

Through ongoing research acupuncture has been shown to be beneficial in treating many conditions and disorders which include:

  • Headaches
  • Acute and Chronic Pain
  • Facial and TMJ Pain
  • Neck and Back Pain
  • Sciatic Pain
  • Neuralgias
  • Tendonitis
  • Musculoskeletal Problems
  • Arthritic Conditions
  • Stress and Insomnia
  • Addictions (Smoking Cessation)
  • Nausea and Morning Sickness

If you have any of the conditions mentioned above or have tried other pain management solutions that either didn’t work or simply masked the pain – we’d love the opportunity to see if we can help.
