Acupuncture & Chronic Pain

Home » News » Acupuncture & Chronic Pain

Regrettably, persistent (chronic) pain is a widespread problem in the UK and affects some 8m people. Long term chronic pain can lead to depression and potentially the loss of a job. Currently £3.8b is spent annually on incapacity benefit payment to those diagnosed with chronic pain.

Here at the Tattenhall Clinic for Health and Well Being we know how Acupuncture can help...

Well conducted studies support the advantages in receiving acupuncture treatment.
In general, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the nervous system and cause the release
of neurochemical messenger molecules. The resulting biochemical change, influences the
body's homeostatic mechanisms, thus promoting physical and emotional well-being.

Stimulation of certain acupuncture points has been shown to affect areas of the brain that
are known to reduce sensitivity to pain and to stress, as well as promoting relaxation and
deactivating the analytical brain, which is responsible for anxiety.

Acupuncture may also help relieve chronic pain by stimulating nerves located in muscles and
other tissues. The resultant release of endorphins, the changes in the processing of pain in the brain and spinal cord, the reduction in inflammation, the improvement in muscle stiffness and spasm and the improvements in joint mobility are all areas that can derive benefit from receiving acupuncture treatments.

Give me a call and pop into the clinic for a chat about possible options available to you.
