Did you know over 85% of acupuncture patients receive relief and it’s rare that pain is not satisfactorily reduced? Whitefish Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine treats all kinds of patients, but the chief motivation for many of those patients is living life pain-free so they can enjoy all Montana has to offer.
How Does it Work?
By inserting thin needles, heat or pressure to specific points on the body, the source of pain is inactivated by modulating endorphin levels, regulating the nervous system, immune system and endocrine/hormonal system.
Acupuncture may sound like an exotic or even improbable treatment for chronic pain, but it’s been around for centuries.
According to the National Institute of Health, several recent studies have shown that acupuncture provides long-term relief from pain. Doctors now routinely recommend acupuncture to treat chronic pain such as back and neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, planter fasciitis and sciatica.
Pins & Needles
If you’ve been thinking about trying acupuncture to relieve pain that just won’t go away, there are several reasons why you should take the next step. Acupuncture works when other treatments fail or provide no relief from pain. Most patients start acupuncture as a last resort for dealing with stubborn chronic pain or illness, but ironically, it can be the most effective solution for many.
The side effects of acupuncture are minimal, and often patients notice better sleep and digestion with treatment. Acupuncture is able to shift the brain into a baseline state of relaxation. Many patients feel better in their bodies as well as their minds.
Great improvements are routinely seen in cases involving chronic pain from injuries, overuse and pain unrelated to specific incidents.
Treatment plans are laid out carefully from the beginning so patients know exactly what to expect, how long recovery will likely take, and when they should start seeing results.
