physical pain

Often times, people suffering from pain take medication to dull the pain. It may be helpful to dull the symptoms for a short period of time, but it will not get at the root of the problem and correct it. It is like hitting the snooze button on an alarm. Unless the cause of the pain is treated, your body will keep sounding the alarm and reminding you that something is wrong. Eventually the pain may get worse or become chronic. It is also possible for the medications to cause unwanted side effects and further compromise your health.

Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe, effective, natural and drug-free way to eliminate pain. Unlike other methods of handling pain, there are no side effects. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) acknowledge the benefits of acupuncture in treating and eliminating pain due to a wide range of causes.

Acupuncture practitioners recognize that there is a vital energy, called Qi (pronounced “chee”or "Ki "), circulating within the body. Qi or Ki flows through a series of pathways called meridians. Meridians are like rivers within your body. The diagram to the right shows the meridians throughout the body. Wherever a river flows it brings with it water that provides nourishment and life to the land, plants and people around it. Likewise, meridians transport life-giving Qi or Ki that provides nourishment to every cell, tissue, muscle, organ and gland in the body.

Many things can cause Qi to become blocked:
What Causes physical pain
pain can be rooted in many different causes, including

  • Injury or trauma to the area

  • Degeneration of the spinal discs

  • Poor posture

  • Poor diet

  • Emotional trauma

  • Inherited weakness of Qi Ki

  • Chemical, physical, and/or emotional stress

  • Scoliosis

  • Sprain or strain

  • Muscle or ligament tear

  • Spinal stenosis and sciatica

  • Lower back spasm

No one should have to live with pain, but which treatment is right for you?

especially Since your spine is the foundational structure of your entire back and neck region, not resolving neck or lower back pain may create long-term problems that can result in severe immobility issues.

A blockage in the flow of Qi Ki anywhere in the body will inhibit the amount of nourishment that reaches our cells, tissues, muscles, organs and glands. Under normal circumstances, your body can easily return to good health and vitality. If the disruption of Qi Ki is prolonged or excessive, or if your body is in a weakened state, the flow of Qi Ki becomes restricted and a variety of symptoms, including pain, may arise.
