Acupuncture Q & A
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that involves super fine needles being inserted into your skin. The primary use for acupuncture is pain relief. The way this works is by stimulating the nerves, connective tissue, and muscles. This stimulation encourages inflammation into areas that are causing you pain, such as lower back pain or neck pain. This helps to speed up healing in these areas so that your body can reduce inflammation and swelling more quickly. In return, you benefit from natural pain relief. As for pain during acupuncture, you will not feel anything more than a light sting as the needles are inserted. Afterward, you are provided with aftercare advice by Brooklyn Urgent Care that will help your body continue to heal from the treatment.
Why Should I Consider Acupuncture for Pain Management?
If you are looking for pain management methods that do not involve prescription painkillers, yet are effective, acupuncture is an ideal choice. It is used to treat several medical conditions and diseases including osteoarthritis, dental pain, headaches, labor pain, menstrual cramping, and fibromyalgia. For individuals, such as expecting mothers, acupuncture is a useful tool for pain management since it doesn’t have any adverse side effects.
