Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years, and there are many documented benefits to the practice for pain relief. At Martin Chiropractic Wellness in the Los Angeles, Pasadena, Glendale, and Eagle Rock CA areas, you’ll be sure to have the best chiropractor in the business. Below are some examples of how you might benefit from acupuncture.
One well-researched effect of acupuncture is reducing inflammation throughout the body. Acupuncture stimulates chemicals that reduce swelling and slow down unwanted immune responses and allergic reactions. Acupuncture also helps strengthen the digestive system, which can be a source of unrecognized inflammation, making allergies worse. With just weeks of regular treatment, acupuncture can help eliminate the symptoms of allergies.
Gas, bloating, constipation, or bowel changes are signs that there is something wrong with your digestive system. Acupuncture is known to regulate digestive function. There is an entire school of thought in Chinese medicine that treats the digestive system for any illness, based on the belief that when the gut functions properly, the entire system can maintain its balance.
Sciatica is a painful disorder caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve, a very long nerve that begins in the low back and branches down into each leg, continuing to the feet. Those who experience it know sciatic pain is challenging to calm with over-the-counter medication. The pain can be felt anywhere along the nerve and keeps you from enjoying daily life. Acupuncture can be incredibly useful in treating sciatic pain. I have seen a patient pain-free for the first time in years after only a few acupuncture sessions. It’s worth a try.
Insomnia can come in many forms. Some people have difficulty falling asleep while others feel tired only to find that as soon as they lie down, their brains become active. Others have no trouble falling asleep but wake up during the night and have trouble going back to sleep. Some people struggle with both falling and staying asleep. Properly placed acupuncture needles coupled with lifestyle changes can greatly help insomniacs sleep through the night.
