Acupunctuur en pijnbestrijding

Research shows that acupuncture can be highly effective in managing pain, including in the back, neck, shoulders, and head. Pain serves as a natural warning signal from the body to the brain and indeed has a purpose. However, virtually no one willingly endures pain, and so we use acupuncture to treat pain symptoms. Read on to see what pain management through acupuncture can mean for your complaints.

Western Acupuncture for Pain Management

In addition to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western acupuncture is also highly effective in combating pain. This form of acupuncture stimulates the production of endogenous substances and increases neurotransmitters such as endorphin. These boost the body's self-healing ability and function as painkillers and anti-inflammatories.

Acupuncture for Back Pain

Back pain originates from the nervous system and can be effectively treated with acupuncture. In acupuncture, we believe in energy blockages in certain parts of the body which can relax and flow again through acupuncture treatment. This allows waste products to be properly disposed of, reducing the pain. Read here all about pain management with acupuncture for lower back pain.

Acupuncture for Neck Pain

Like back pain, neck pain often results from poor posture or an incorrect (often sudden) movement. This causes tension in the body, leading to blockages of energy flows. The neck muscles are very sensitive and can cause significant pressure in the neck vertebrae if too tense. Both acute neck pain and chronic neck pain, as well as neck pain resulting from a whiplash, can be combated with acupuncture. Read more about acupuncture after a whiplash here.

Acupuncture for Shoulder Pain

Neck pain often coincides with shoulder pain. The pain from the neck then transitions into pain in the shoulders and vice versa. These pains often result from stress and cause blockages in the energy channels. Reduced blood circulation leads to waste products and eventually to pain. Our specialists' acupuncture treatments are effective in removing blockages and combating neck and shoulder pain.

Acupuncture for Migraines

Pain management with acupuncture is also frequently used for migraines. The feedback on this has been very positive. Read more about acupuncture for headaches and migraines here.

How can acupuncture help with pain management?

Acupuncture is perceived as highly effective for both acute and chronic pain. Often, six to eight treatments are already very effective in relieving or even resolving pain. Sometimes, a heated 'Moxa' stick is also used to warm pain points and let energy flow again. For chronic pain conditions where much consecutive pricking is necessary, electroacupuncture is sometimes used.
