                              Using Acupuncture to Manage and Control Pain

The most frequently cited problem that leads patients to Chien Acupuncture in Colorado Springs, is a desire to live without pain. Many people suffer from the debilitating effects of acute and chronic pain, which can limit their ability to enjoy life, creating a cycle of sleeplessness and despair. Chronic pain often plagues patients for years before they learn that acupuncture and associated pain therapies can improve how they feel.

Surgery and prescription drugs are common pain management treatments offered within the medical community; however they are not always the only pain therapy route that is available. By employing a holistic approach, which includes the use of Chinese herbs, acupuncture, cupping, and other centuries old treatments, patients often find relief without surgery or prescription drugs.

                             Individualized Pain Management Treatment with Acupuncture

Individualized treatment is as important in traditional Chinese medicine as it is in modern medicine. Skillfully diagnosing the cause and adjusting treatments to treat the underlying condition is imperative to successful pain management. The science behind the process indicates that hormone levels, neurotransmitters, or the immune system are improved by acupuncture. Traditional Chinese medicine relies on its ability to balance qi and energy flow throughout the body.
