Neck Pain Q & A
What causes neck pain?
Neck pain and stiffness is a common ailment that may be due to degenerative changes or arthritis in your spine, which may also cause inflammation and irritation of nerves in the neck region. Injuries sustained during an auto accident or sporting event are also common culprits.
How does acupuncture help with neck pain?
Acupuncture originated in Asia over 3,000 years ago and has become an increasingly popular form of health care that’s often recommended by a wide range of medical specialists for treatment of chronic pain. It’s a drug-free solution to pain that can help improve your overall mobility and quality of life without the risks of addiction and other health consequences associated with pain medications and surgical procedures.
Acupuncture triggers your body's natural healing response as very fine/thin needles are inserted at acupressure points throughout the body. This action enhances your ability to resist or overcome illnesses and conditions by correcting imbalances.
Acupuncture also prompts your body to produce chemicals (endorphins) that naturally decrease or eliminate painful sensations. Other benefits of acupuncture include a reduction in inflammation, which is often a significant component of pain.
Is acupuncture safe?
Acupuncture has a very low-risk profile and is considered quite safe when provided by a licensed/certified acupuncturist like those found at Family Wellness Acupuncture.
Care must be taken to maintain a sterile environment and reduce the risk of infection by utilizing single-use disposable acupuncture needles that are sized and positioned correctly along energy pathways (meridians).
The practitioners at Family Wellness Acupuncture have undergone years of specialized training and have extensive experience in providing acupuncture treatments to relieve neck pain.
How many acupuncture treatments will I need?
Each case is different and the number of treatments you may require for optimal results can vary. It’s generally recommended, however, that you undergo a series of treatments once or twice a week for 10-12 sessions and then return for maintenance treatments periodically to continue experiencing the benefits of acupuncture.
