Like it or not, bodily pain will be experienced by every person at some point in their life. Whether it’s from a serious health condition, a sports injury, or from gardening, your next plan of action can mean a significant reduction of your pain and a faster length of recovery.
In the case of back pain, for example, around 83% of people will suffer from back pain at some point. The question is, has anyone ever considered acupuncture as treatment?
A lot of individuals are just contented to learn to deal with the pain or mask it with prescription pain killers or over-the-counter drugs such as analgesics or ibuprofen. From time to time, these drugs can qualitatively quell acute pain; over time however, negative side effects or addiction can develop.
Only as a last resort do people consider acupuncture. At the end of the day, they are still living in pain despite having had cortisone shots, an abundance of medications, physical therapy, MRI, and even surgery.
When you start to realize that you don’t have to live in pain, that’s when your real treatment for bodily pain really begins.
Looking for help from medical professionals that can treat you is your next step of action. This means searching for and visiting a reputable and qualified acupuncturist preferably one practicing near your location. These health professionals can determine if MRIs are needed, perform exams, and address the underlying cause of the problem instead of metaphorically covering the symptoms with a band-aid.
From your acupuncturist, certain acupoints are inserted with needles and small dietary changes need to be done in order for you to enjoy life free of pain. Did you know that the inflammatory response in your body is increased and your immune system is suppressed by eating a high amount of sugar? More inflammation means more pain!
Moreover, more stress is created in your body when you suffer from bodily pain and stress actually creates more pain. With acupuncture this vicious cycle is immediately stopped as this treatment can help you get longer and high quality sleep, remove inflammation, and reduce stress –things the body needs in order to reduce pain.
So then, think of acupuncture first in your next plan of action to eradicate bodily pain.
