Back and Neck Pain
Most of the time, these conditions result entirely or in part from muscular spasms and resulting inflammation. When muscle fibers become shortened and “knotted”, sensations can occur ranging from mild achiness to sharp pain. While massage feels great, and can often release superficial muscular spasms, acupuncture provides longer-lasting and even permanent release of spasms. Furthermore, when muscles become knotted, blockages in circulation of energy and blood occur, creating pain and oxygen/nutrient deficiency at the affected area. With acupuncture treatment, inflammation and pain can also be relieved, facilitating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. If your condition involves skeletal changes, such as with scoliosis or disc injury, chiropractic treatment is recommended in conjunction with acupuncture, for the fastest and most lasting relief.
