Many people suffer from chronic pain with little relief from traditional medicines, which mostly serve to mask pain but carry with them many unwanted and detrimental side effects. Opiates are the most common pain relievers prescribed in western medical culture for those who suffer from chronic pain disorders. Although these can be effective, they can cause other problems such as constipation, digestive disorders, sleep deprivation and addiction.
A growing number of people who require pain management treatment have sought out acupuncture as an adjunct or alternative treatment to prescription drugs. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for numerous disorders such as low back pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and sports related injuries. Additionally, acupuncture can help alleviate pain for cancer patients by mitigating pain in various parts of the body that is caused by liver, lung, gastric, pancreatic and colon cancers.
