Acupuncture is often used to treat back pain, knee pain, neck pain, and headaches. If you have been experiencing frequent headaches, the discomfort can prevent you from accomplishing certain tasks and affect your quality of life. At Meek Integrative Health in Springfield, MO, we offer acupuncture to alleviate your pain and improve your well-being.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient method that uses thin needs, which are placed in specific points of the body to eliminate pain and help you feel belter. Along with that, the needles must penetrate the skin at certain pressure points in order to release hormones that can help your body heal. In addition to relieving pain, acupuncture can reduce nausea, vomiting, and boost your immune system.
How Can Acupuncture Help with Headaches?
Various headaches are caused by tension and over-the-counter medications may only be able to provide temporary relief. However, acupuncture has been found to be incredibly effective at treating tension headaches and migraines. Placing the needles at specific pressure points of the the head and neck releases endorphins and stimulates the circulatory system. When your circulatory system is improved, it can help prevent headaches from occurring.
Acupuncture for Pain Relief
For headaches with more complex underlying causes, acupuncture can help relieve the pain, but not may not address the root cause of the discomfort. However, acupuncture can be beneficial in reducing the frequency and intensity of tension headaches and migraines. When you visit us, we will speak with you about your symptoms and determine if this treatment may be effective for your condition.
