Why Should You Consider Professional Acupuncture?
Wednesday, September 5, 2018

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture has very recently become quite a popular form of therapy. It is designed to be a treatment for many illnesses and stress, including multiple kinds of pains. The National Institutes of Health have managed to fund a research with an immense budget dedicated to finding out the comprehensive benefits and effects of acupuncture.

Acupuncture, when practiced by a skilled individual, is usually painless. Modern disposable needles carry almost no risk of infection therefore are best suited to the task. While the theory behind how acupuncture works has not been validated by modern scientific investigations, many people have obtained substantial relief as a result of these treatments.

Research Says…

There are currently several large-scale studies under-way that are currently looking to uncover the benefits and properties of acupuncture. They are looking into how it can be better used to improve treatment for illnesses and conditions that are not easily treated by modern medicine. So much so, that some of these studies are even trying to determine how acupuncture can compare to other forms of treatments.

It is even being compared to multiple other means of treatment for patients that suffer from lower back pain as well. Soon the results of these studies will be available and can serve as evidence. But that’s after a short wait which might still be for at least a few more years.

What is it a treatment for?

Acupuncture is currently used as a treatment for the multiple kinds of sickness associated with pregnancy, chemotherapy, and after an operation. This is because it has the ability to restore certain balances to your body. It has also been studied as a useful means of treating addictions to cigarettes, alcohol, and drugs. This means it has strong detoxification abilities that literally reset the body and allow for a quick detoxifying heal. It is also considered to be a reliable method for alleviating symptoms and different degrees of headaches. It even treats menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, and even some very unique cases of asthma.

Acupuncture treatments are usually considered smart and sterile too. This is because it consists of placing these very thin sterile stainless steel needles into the skin. This is done by puncturing the skin and muscles in certain locations. These specific locations correspond to certain organs, their functions, and anatomic areas deep within the body. These cannot be accessed surgically without upsetting the delicate natural balance of the body. Upsetting that balance can have an adverse effect on your body functions.

However, there have been reported rare occasions where serious adverse events have occurred, such as infections and punctured organs. But the risk is minimal in the case of a professional that understands the nature of the problem. This is true in the case of chiropractors and neurosurgeons because they understand the function of those muscles and bones. Another smart measure could be to rely on a reputed neurosurgeon to get a proper treatment going. If you need a reliable acupuncture treatment, you can always contact us here.
