acupuncture-for-chronic-back-pain

Chronic back pain can make life miserable. Using ice, heat, balms, and physical therapy can help alleviate the pain. However, acupuncture is a good alternative. The American Pain Society and American College of Physicians have stated that if a patient with chronic back pain is not cured by conventional treatment; medical practitioners should consider acupuncture as an alternative therapy.

How does acupuncture alleviate chronic back pain?

Acupuncture for chronic back pain involves inserting very thin needles into various parts of the body at different depths. When the needles are inserted in the body, the imbalances in the flow of energy are corrected. More specifically, this is how acupuncture works.

  • It enhances the relay of electromagnetic signals. Pain killing chemicals like endorphins are released into the blood stream. Immune system cells are also released into the body.
  • Neurotransmitters and neurohormones are released. Neurotransmitters can either stimulate or subdue the nerve impulses. Neurohormones, on the other hand, affect the working of an organ in the body.
  • It releases Opioids. They are chemicals in the brain that reduce the feeling of pain and enhance sleep.
