Rockefeller Health Medical Offers Acupuncture in Midtown, NY for Pain Management
Chronic pain can cause a significant impact on your daily life. Individuals with pain are often unable to participate in normal activities and may isolate themselves from life’s mainstream, due to their efforts to manage their discomfort. Conventional medicine often relies on strong medications or surgery to correct painful conditions, but alternative methods, like acupuncture can offer another option. At Rockefeller Health Medical, our NYC chiropractic clinic in Manhattan, we provide a variety of services including chiropractic care and acupuncture treatments to manage pain and improve your ability to enjoy life.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a Chinese healing method that has been used for thousands of years to relieve pain. The practice uses very thin needles that are inserted into specific points in the body through which natural energy flows. The result is relief from pain and better function. It can be used to help back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, arthritis discomfort and even pain from cancer. Acupuncture offers a number of benefits because it relieves pain without the use of strong drugs, has no side effects and can be used, as needed, whenever the individual needs relief of discomfort.
How Acupuncture Works to Relieve Pain
Studies have looked into how acupuncture works and have found that stimulating specific points in the body disrupts the pain signals that travel to the brain. These actions also help the body to produce pain-relieving chemicals that reduce the sensation of pain. Finally, acupuncture releases healing body compounds. These mechanisms make acupuncture an effective method for pain management. At your Rockefeller chiropractic care office, you can receive acupuncture treatment at a convenient location.
Needleless acupuncture uses the same energy meridians in the body used by traditional acupuncture but stimulates these centers without penetrating the skin. They rely on more vigorous pressure on these points to provide the same effect.
Needleless acupuncture uses a variety of different types of devices to apply pressure to the energy meridians of the body, instead of using needles to directly affect these points. This method allows individuals who don’t like needles or have issues regarding breaking the skin to enjoy the benefits of acupuncture, without its drawbacks.
