Acupuncture as an alternative for pain management

Numerous clinical studies have shown that acupuncture is effective in the treatment of a wide range of chronic pain conditions, without any adverse effects.

Postoperative pain, headaches, migraine prevention, neck pain, chronic low back pain, dysmenorrhea or gonarthrosis and other pain can be alleviated by acupuncture, such as cancer pain, childbirth pain or acute low back pain. Acupuncture also has results in the treatment of fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Acupuncture activates several opiates produced by the body. This reaction can be explained by a neurobiological model. Acupuncture also contributes significantly to the fight against the opiate crisis and helps patients suffering from chronic pain and opiate addiction by offering a non-addictive, non-pharmacological and harmless strategy.
