Carolina Family Acupuncture can help you find relief from various chronic pain conditions, including:
Prescription drugs and over-the-counter painkillers are often the immediate choice for many people who experience pain or headaches. These drugs may bring immediate relief, but the relief doesn’t last because the root cause of the pain has not been addressed.
Chronic pain, headaches, and migraines can stem from hormones, improper diet, stress, overworking, relational and emotional stress, or physical trauma. Understanding the root cause of your pain is essential to bringing true healing.
How Does Acupuncture Work for Pain Relief?
Acupuncture is best known for pain management, both chronic and acute pain. But how does it work?
The human body has incredible self-healing powers–acupuncture helps activate them. Acupuncture increases the size of blood vessels (vasodilation), which brings new blood to the affected area and heals the tissue. Acupuncture also helps increase beta endorphins, the natural pain relief that your body produces.
