Control Pain using Acupuncture
Acupuncture has many uses in today's world. Derived from ancient Chinese medicine, traditional practitioners believe that energy called Qi (pronounced Chee) flows through the body. Should this energy flow be blocked or disrupted, then illness of one type or another occurs. The idea with inserting the needles is that a skilled an experienced acupuncturist can manipulate Qi to flow in the right places to cure the ailments.
Thanks to the success of acupuncture in the west, more and more doctors are proscribing it. It is still seen as a largely alternative medicine, but the results do seem to be speaking for themselves.
Acupuncture and Pain
Currently, the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommends acupuncture as a treatment option to control lower back pain. There is also growing evidence that acupuncture can help with migraine headaches and nausea. Currently, more scientific based research is being undertaken in respect of other conditions which a growing number believe acupuncture can cure or at least provide pain relief.
Acupuncture as an Alternative Pain Control
One of the problems we face in Britain is that should we experience severe and constant pain, often our only option is to take painkilling tablets of one kind or another. This is not a pleasant experience by any stretch of the imagination. Often this can lead to other problems such as addiction, depression, and anxiety. More physical side effects can manifest themselves as well.
