Acupuncture Davis a Viable Remedy for Pain

February 5, 2012

Acupuncture Davis is a very good remedy for painful conditions.  This can include arthritis, shoulder pain, neck pain, knee pain and many other types of ailments. In East Asia, acupuncture is considered a part of mainstream medicine; in the Western world, it is classified as a type of alternative medicine.

Even if it is slowly being accepted in Western medicine as a treatment form for painful conditions, the procedures of acupuncture are quite unique and exotic. Whatever view the Wets have of acupuncture, it is still the most tested and safest type of medicine in existence.  Acupuncture does not encourage the use of prescription drugs in its treatment, it in fact, assists and relies on the body’s own defense mechanisms and healing power to cure and prevent health problems.  In reality, acupuncture and other forms of traditional Chinese modalities are quite practical, safer, less invasive and more effective than the ones Western conventional medicine offers.

Acupuncture is a part of traditional Chinese medicine, which is a collection of various modalities working on the basic principles of energy balance and flow to the body.  Acupuncture is about inserting filiform needles at certain parts in the body to enable energy (chi) balance and smooth chi flow throughout the body. This modality is 5,000 years old and is based on the belief that illness, pain and disease is due to interference in the flow of blood and energy in the body or that there is not enough chi and blood maintain proper energy balance and flow .

The insertion and manipulation of needles serves to restore blood and chi flow to relieve many kinds of ailments.  Because it stimulates the body to heal itself from disease and pain, acupuncture is powerful enough to help the body overcome many kinds of sickness and ailments.

The use of needles in treating many kinds of conditions is a very unique trait of acupuncture which Western conventional medicine finds very hard to verify. Chi and chi blockage is very difficult to prove by Western science since it deals with matters that it can see and detect, which chi and chi disruptions seem not to be.  Whatever dilemma, Western science faces regarding acupuncture, the World Health Organization (WHO) itself, nevertheless, has given its imprimatur to acupuncture, listing over 40 health conditions that acupuncture can treat.

A study at the University of Maryland has verified acupuncture’s ability to treat lower back pain when 33 subjects suffering from chronic back discomfort experienced substantial short-term relief after given acupuncture therapy.  These results along with numerous others done all over the world  has given proof of acupuncture’s health advantages and it should only be befitting that acupuncture should have its rightful place in modern medicine.
