Have you been feeling under the weather? Maybe you’ve just experienced a car accident or received a chronic pain diagnosis. Whatever the case, medical acupuncture can help. Medical acupuncture is a natural treatment dating back to ancient China that uses thin needles to stimulate parts of your body. Thinking about voluntarily getting needles inserted may make you shudder, but acupuncture is surprisingly effective and can treat a wide range of conditions. From sciatica pain to arthritis to post-operative recovery, adding acupuncture to a treatment plan has been shown to help accelerate recovery and relieve stress, which helps you heal more efficiently.
