Acupuncture has been used to treat a great many ailments for 5,000 years. The ancient Chinese healers believed that acupuncture helped restore the balance of a mysterious life energy known as qi. Proper qi flow was essential for good health, so whenever an injury or other problems disrupted that flow, pain and sickness was the result.
To combat this, the ancients devised a complex map of acupuncture points, laid out over qi pathways called meridians. By inserting their fine needles at specific points along these pathways, they could redirect the errant qi to restore normal physical function.
This view of acupuncture holds up quite well to modern Western medicine if you think of nerve pathways as "meridians." The central nervous system functions much the same way, relaying essential signals and sensations to all parts of the body. Our Orlando chiropractor prescribes acupuncture (often alongside chiropractic adjustment and other treatments) to help normalize nerve signaling and trigger biochemical responses, thus permitting your body to work correctly again.
One of the most popular applications for Orlando acupuncture at our wellness center is pain relief and chronic pain management. You might find sticking needles into your skin an odd way of achieving this goal, but the needles themselves produce no significant sensation at all -- while their effect on the body's pain mechanism is significant.
Modern studies indicate that the acupuncture needles stimulate the release of calcium from muscles, which in turn triggers the production of endorphins, the body's natural painkilling substances. This makes acupuncture especially attractive for chronic pain sufferers who can't take certain painkilling medications, or those who simply prefer a drug-free solution to their pain issues.
