Acupuncture for Chronic Pain Relief
Chronic pain impacts over 1.5 billion people in the world. Nearly 1/3 of adults in the United States are living with chronic pain. It is an epidemic, one that severely impacts quality of life.
What’s more, standard treatments for pain are often not enough, and many come with negative side effects. Opiates and other pain relievers can cause anxiety, irritability, nausea, drowsiness, and other issues. Many of them are addictive, and in severe cases have led to severe issues, and even death.
Thankfully, there is hope for people suffering from chronic pain: acupuncture.
Acupuncture works to correct imbalances in the body, impacting neurotransmitters and hormone levels. In particular, acupuncture releases endorphins, which are the human body’s natural pain-killing chemicals. Science reports that endorphins are 200 times more effective a relieving pain than morphine.
“Went for neck pain and numbness that didn’t respond to physical therapy or steroid injections. Symptoms were gone after 3 sessions. I now go regularly to keep that in check, but Marlo also treats whatever is bothering me that day and I always feel amazing when I leave. Highly recommend for any type of ailment. So much better than drugs!” - Judy B., 5 Star Google Review
Not only has acupuncture been used for centuries worldwide, but research has found it to be “an effective and safe form of treatment for many forms of chronic and acute pain,” with as many as 85% of chronic pain patients reporting relief after receiving acupuncture. Furthermore, the FDA recommends acupuncture as a method of pain relief prior to the use of painkillers.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny, hair-thin needles. Patients report little to no pain — and enormous benefit. Many patients report improvements in their pain in as little as one session, though a series of acupuncture treatments may be necessary for chronic issues.
Acupuncture can be used for pain throughout the body, including:
Sprains & Strains
“Knowledgable, professional and exceptionally effective. I have two herniated discs in my neck, after months of pain with no relief from traditional or chiropractic care or pain meds, I went to see Marlo. Within a few treatments I felt considerably better and now am pretty much pain free without surgery. I highly recommend Four Seasons and Marlo as a holistic solution.” - Kevin H., 5 Star Google Review
