Treat Neck Pain With Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been used as a method to relieve pain throughout the body for thousands of years. More recently, the practice of acupuncture therapy has been scientifically shown to relieve many types of body pain. This includes neck pain – a common aliment amongst too many people, especially those who stare at a computer screen every day at work. Acupuncture is a proven practice to reduce, and in some cases, completely eliminate neck pain.
Contrary to common belief, there is more than one muscle in your neck that can be the source of your pain. Most of these neck muscles also run through your back, shoulders, and head as well. Finding the source of the pain and treating that specific muscle, along with the surrounding muscles, will effectively treat the exact problem area. Having an acupuncturist treat your neck pain this way is much more accurate than only taking pain medications to cope with the pain. Acupuncture therapy will target the pain at its source to relieve it.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you can have your pain relieved by acupuncture therapy:
· Stiffening of the neck muscles
· Waking up with neck pain
· Experiencing pain when you turn your neck
· Experiencing a pain that runs through your neck, back, and shoulders
· Chronic, pinching neck pain
These symptoms are commonly caused by muscle spasms, strains, or pulls that could have happened as a result of a physical activity, accident, injury, or stress. Regardless of how the pain originated, acupuncture therapy can help to relieve your symptoms. Pain medications will only serve to provide short term pain relief, but acupuncture therapy can provide long-lasting results!
