Acupuncture works for Pain!

how does it work?

Acupuncture has been known to be highly effective for pain management.  This is true because rather than masking the issue, it gets to the root of the pain.  We specialize in Acupuncture for pain management at our Acupuncture clinic in Franklin. When pain exists in the body it is because there is a lack of conduction or flow in the nervous system and Acupuncture helps to restore this sense of flow so the body is reconnected and the nerves are firing.

 Why Does The Body Experience Pain?

And How Does Acupuncture Help?

When there is a lack of connection in the nervous system, the body then sends a message to the brain telling the brain that there is a disconnection.  This is translated into a message that our body can understand as ‘pain.’  Pain occurs as a symptom to alert the person that there is something wrong in the body.  Medication acts on the brain to block the pain signal.  This alleviates the brain’s interpretation of the pain, yet the root of the pain, the blockage, is still there.  If you have pain, our Franklin Acupuncturist can help to relieve it, at the root so it does not return. Acupuncture works by increasing the flow of blood, and of nervous system activity at a bio-photon level.

How Does Acupuncture really Work?

Acupuncture is effective because as a needle is inserted,  it reaches the level of the nervous system.  This fires 3-15 micro volts of energy, creating electrical conductivity, which gets to the root of the issue.  This increases flow in the nervous system while decreasing inflammation at the nerve root.

Finding a Balance

To live a healthy life, it is important to find balance.  Like a car, the body is based on mechanics.  It must be maintained through regular treatments of massage, cupping and acupuncture to stay limber, relaxed and optimally performing.

Building a Routine

It is important to get pain addressed immediately, when in the acute phases versus waiting for it to become chronic.  With maintenance performed routinely, the body moves properly, leading to less problems later in life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Acupuncture Works

Does Acupuncture Help With Neck Pain?

Yes, Acupuncture treats neck pain very effectively.  In fact, we use Acupuncture to treat pain anywhere in the body.

Does Acupuncture Help Sciatica Pain?

Yes, the sciatic nerve runs just beneath the piriformis muscle in the buttocks.  Acupuncture helps to alleviate the inflammation and pressure of this muscle on the sciatic nerve.

Can Acupuncture Help with Fibromyalgia Pain?

Yes, Acupuncture is a very effective remedy for Fibromyalgic pain.  Because Fibromyalgia usually has a root Adrenal deficiency issue, our Franklin Acupuncturist can speak to you extensively about this issue as it is one of her specialities.

Does Acupuncture Treat Herniated Disks?

While Acupuncture itself cannot put a herniated disk back into place.  Often a disk is herniated because the muscles alongside the spine have become very tense for a long period of time.  This causes strain on the bones of the spine, causing the disks to herniate.  Acupuncture helps with pain management near the herniation, but with massage and cupping, it can help to alleviate the tension on the spine.  This can help an overall herniation problem.

Can Acupuncture Help with Nerve Pain and Neuralgia?

Yes, because Acupuncture targets the nervous system directly, it is the most effective remedy for nerve pain.

Can Acupuncture Help with Arthritis Pain?

Yes, Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis.  It gets to the root of the issue and allows the nerves to fire properly.
