Acupuncture as a treatment for pain relief

Acupuncture is a Chinese therapy that works miracles for different diseases, especially for relief of pain. According to Chinese medical theory, there are energy pathways called meridians that flow through your body. A blockage of these pathways results in health related issues. When needles are inserted in the areas which influence the energy flow through the meridians this relieves the pain.

Recent research shows positive results for people who were treated through acupuncture for post surgery pain and chemotherapy. Acupuncture is helpful in treating patients in rehabilitation after a stroke as it helps the patient in relearning the skills lost due to the effects of stroke. Acupuncture is also very useful for treating patients of osteoarthritis. In this health issue the cartilage and the tissue that cushion the joints break down. Recent studies also indicate that knee pain can be reduced by acupuncture.

The World Health Organization has noted that acupuncture may be a helpful part of a treatment plan for illnesses that include addiction (such as alcoholism ), carpal tunnel syndrome, facial tics, fibromyalgia, headaches, osteoarthritis, stroke rehabilitation, tendonitis, tennis elbow, urinary problems such as incontinence, sports injuries, sprains, strains, neck pain, sciatica, nerve pain due to compression, pain resulting from spinal cord injuries, anxiety, and many other disorders.
