According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), a number of studies suggest that acupuncture works particularly well on chronic pain such as back and neck pain; osteoarthritis/knee pain; and headache. It often reduces the incidence and severity of tension headaches and may prevent migraines. “Therefore,” the NIH concludes, “acupuncture appears to be a reasonable option for people with chronic pain to consider.”
Researchers found that pain relief with acupuncture comes from inactivating the source of pain by modulating endorphin levels. Other area’s of pain that acupuncture can help are with:Muscle soreness, Tendonitis, Nerve Pain, Carpal Tunnel…and more.
