Treatment for chronic pain

By Dave Chandraratnam

Dealing with chronic pain can feel like a never-ending battle. Whether it’s nagging back pain, relentless migraines, or those stubborn sore joints, finding relief can sometimes seem impossible. This is something that acupuncture and even Chinese Medicine can help you with.

For those unfamiliar with it, acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. It’s a key component of traditional Chinese medicine to bring the body back into balance.

Studies have shown that acupuncture can be incredibly effective for managing chronic pain. A major review published in the Journal of Pain in 2018 found that acupuncture significantly reduced pain.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), the United States’ medical research agency, acknowledges acupuncture as a valid option for treating chronic pain, including low back pain, osteoarthritis, and even tension headaches.

Acupuncture is a recommended treatment option for chronic pain from the NSW Department of Health for all doctors to give as an option to their patients.

If you’re new to acupuncture, the thought of needles might be intimidating, but the process is typically painless and even relaxing.

You’ll lie in a comfortable position while the acupuncturist places the needles at specific points on your body. Sessions usually last about 50 minutes, and many people find them a calming escape from their daily stress.

If you’re tired of chronic pain controlling your life, acupuncture might be the answer you’ve been looking for. Acupuncture is a promising option for anyone struggling with chronic pain. Plus, it’s a natural treatment with few side effects compared to many pain medications. You can book an appointment with Dave here:
