Medical acupuncture is truly a remarkable treatment. It stimulates the body’s nervous system, thereby encouraging the release of chemicals that dull pain, encourage healing, and more. But what specific conditions can it be used to treat? Read on below to see some specific examples.

Musculoskeletal Pain

Countless millions of people suffer from arthritis, chronic back pain, carpel tunnel, neck pain, sciatica, and other musculoskeletal conditions. Acupuncture is often incorporated into a holistic treatment plan for such conditions because it can encourage your body to release endorphins, which are natural pain-killing chemicals.

Emotional Problems

Emotional and mental health disorders are quite complex, and there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment for such conditions. However, acupuncture might be able to play a role in helping you lead a calmer, happier life. It is often associated with a decrease in symptoms of anxiety, depression, and general nervousness. It has also been shown to help patients who are struggling with insomnia.

Respiratory Issues

It might seem strange to think about, but acupuncture might be able to help you breathe better! For example, it has been shown to have positive effects for patients who are struggling with sinusitis, which is uncomfortable inflammation of the mucous membranes that line the sinuses. It may also be able to relieve seasonal allergies and bronchitis!

Digestive Problems

There is noteworthy anecdotal evidence showing that acupuncture can help to relieve issues like gastritis and hemorrhoids. It is also commonly recommended for individuals struggling with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), which can cause a number of symptoms, including constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, and stomach pain. One theory suggests that acupuncture’s ability to relieve IBS stems from the fact that it encourages the release of feel-good chemicals that lower stress levels. Stress is known to be a trigger for IBS flare-ups.

Neurological Conditions

Headaches and migraines are complex problems that affect millions of people. Fortunately, many people have noticed a decrease in the frequency and severity of such issues after they incorporate acupuncture into their wellness routine.

The neurological applications of acupuncture go even further. It may play a valuable role in helping patients recover from stroke and in promoting healing and pain relief after complex surgeries.

More Applications

Here are a few more examples of conditions that medical acupuncture might be able to help with:

  • Menstrual cramps
  • Female infertility
  • Male infertility
  • Some forms of impotence
  • Addiction
  • High blood pressure
  • Bladder dysfunction

Benefitting from Medical Acupuncture

Without a doubt, medical acupuncture has the potential to help your entire body function and feel better. Of course, to fully benefit from it, you may need to combine it with other therapies. You should also receive it only from a qualified medical team, rather than a traditional acupuncturist. Once you begin treatment, you may quickly notice a decrease in your unwanted symptoms and an increase in your overall wellness!
