30 Jun 3 Ultimate Reasons To Choose Acupuncture For Pain Relief
Acupuncture is a highly effective pain treatment for various pain disorders. Here are top 3 reasons why you should choose acupuncture at San Diego’s leading pain clinic, Sorrento Valley Pain Relief Center.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) recognized acupuncture as a therapeutic intervention of complementary medicine in 1997. In addition, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends the use of acupuncture for many problems associated with musculoskeletal and neurological disorders. In the United States, about 3 million people receive acupuncture treatments every for chronic pain with 70-85% of chronic pain patients achieving pain relief.
Acupuncture points are regions with sensory nerve supply, TRPVI receptors (pain sensors), and connective tissue. Acupuncture in San Diego works as a mechanical stimulus activating certain receptors and sending signals to the central nervous system pain processing areas. With this, neurochemical processes are activated, working for pain modulation and inducing analgesia.
Clinical studies also show a reduction in the production of pro-inflammatory molecules following acupuncture treatments. This effect was observed in patients with chronic pelvic pain syndrome and osteoarthritis pain. Acupuncture in San Diego appears to have an anti-inflammatory effect by increasing the release of certain mediators in the body.
