Acupuncture Neck Pain
How Good Is Acupuncture for Neck Pain?
Acupuncture can help treat a variety of ailments affecting the body and mind. It has been used to treat anxiety, headaches, and osteoarthritis, and even help people recover from chemotherapy. But is acupuncture for neck pain effective? The answer depends on the cause and severity of the pain. Acupuncture won't instantly heal a fracture or muscle sprain, but it can relieve neck pain and stimulate the body's natural healing process. It does this by calling attention to the puncture wounds. While not painful, these wounds signal the body to send aid in the form of oxygen and nutrients. The treatment is ideal for neck pain caused by minor injury and poor posture. When combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, acupuncture can relieve pain and restore mobility not only in the back, but throughout the entire body.
Whether it's for neck pain or anxiety, acupuncture is only effective when performed by a licensed practitioner.
