Acupuncture has been a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine that originated over 5000 years ago and is now being offered as a holistic approach to pain management at Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation! Acupuncture can provide drug free pain relief for people with chronic pain and suffering by encouraging the body to promote natural healing. The needling of acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release pain-relieving chemicals (endorphins & serotonin) and hormones in the muscles, spinal cord and brain. These chemicals are the body’s natural painkillers. The body produces them to influence its own internal regulating system and healing abilities to fight disease and maintain a healthy physical and emotional state.
Acupuncture is a drug free way for our patients to receive pain management and help them progress along more quickly in their rehabilitation program. Physical rehabilitation plays a critical part of most patients care at NMR. Joint, muscle and spinal problems demand stability, strength and conditioning if one is not only to feel better but also to restore function and prevent similar or worse problems in the future. Incorporating acupuncture into a rehabilitation program can help people with chronic pain or suffering from such things as:
Headaches & Migraines Trigeminal Neuralgia
Back, Neck & Joint Pain Menstrual Cramps
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Osteoarthritis
