If you have chronic pain due to a medical condition such as arthritis, migraines, or joint injuries, acupuncture could be your best method of pain management. Acupuncture has been proven to immediately reduce chronic and acute pain. Here are a few benefits of using acupuncture for pain management.

Minimally Invasive

Acupuncture can seem scary because fine needles are placed in your skin. However, it is actually minimally invasive and does not cause any pain during treatment. Acupuncture is completely safe for most people, with few, if any, side effects. Most people also find it very comfortable and relaxing.

Reduce Dependency

You can greatly reduce or even eliminate your dependency on prescription pain medications, including opioids, with consistent acupuncture treatments. Studies have shown that the relief you get from acupuncture is long lasting, and there is no risk in repeating the treatments as necessary for continued relief. This is much safer than pain medications, which can have harmful side effects and cause addiction.

Prevent Future Pain

Acupuncture has been shown to actually prevent pain in some cases. When used to treat tension headaches and migraines, many patients report that these instances are few and far between with regularly scheduled acupuncture treatments. You can completely prevent your pain from returning with continued treatment.
