Medical acupuncture helps neck, elbow, and back pain

Acupuncture is a safe treatment using small sterile needles. Sessions last up to 20 minutes. Here are three conditions that respond to acupuncture illustrated with individual treatments, following a full assessment.

Neck pain is a common complaint. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture by leaning over your computer or workstation. Osteoarthritis, (wear and tear ) is also a common cause of neck pain.

Elbow pain has a number of causes. Overuse and sports injuries cause many elbow conditions. For example golfers, tennis players, and boxers often have elbow problems. Tennis elbow is common in gardeners, cooks, painters, carpenters, mechanics, and plumbers.

Back pain is common with about nine out of 10 adults experiencing it at some point in their life, and five out of 10 adults having it every year. It is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. In most cases rest, acupuncture, or injections have similar pain resolution after one year.
