Acupuncture can be used for a variety of conditions. It is most commonly used for pain management. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into various points throughout the body. This creates a regulatory response to our central nervous system. It also releases pain blocking chemicals and increases blood flow locally to produce healing. Many patients leave the office visit feeling quite relaxed and optimistic. The treatment is generally well tolerated, low risk and can provide a means of managing pain without stronger medications.
