Acupuncture can access deep healing systems within the body, especially the endocrine system. For patients with adrenal fatigue or chronic fatigue syndrome, the needles can act as a catalyst to bring blood and nourishment to the affected glands. This brings them out of a state of dormancy and wakes them up, so to speak, to begin functioning at a healthy level.
Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation’s acupuncturists can treat patients with hormonal imbalances, causing problems such as fertility issues (women who have low levels of progesterone/estrogen, for example). In this case, acupuncture helps to strengthen the endocrine system and promote the increase and release of sexual hormones.
The World Health Organization has documented numerous studies and updated research on acupuncture and has compiled a list of various diseases and conditions that acupuncture can help treat and/or cure. Acupuncture is not a meta-physical or philosophical system with no science as a foundation. Acupuncture is a physical medicine that provokes deep responses in the central nervous system and brain, endocrine, and immune system, which creates local and distal tissue activity.
Acupuncture has its limits and is not a “fix-all/cure-all” system of medicine, but here are some of the researched and scientifically validated conditions/diseases it can help:
- Infertility (men or women)
- menstrual disorders
- chronic pain (idiopathic or diagnosed)
- autoimmune diseases
- degenerative diseases
- chronic fatigue syndrome
- irritable bowel syndrome
- digestive disorders
- headaches (multiple including migraines)
- weight loss
- endocrine disorders
- childhood behavioral disorders
Pain Relief with Acupuncture at Our Monmouth & Ocean County Rehabilitation Facilities
In Chinese Medicine, pain is considered blocked energy. Acupuncture has been a primary modality for thousands of years to provide people with pain relief by removing this blocked energy through acupuncture needles. It is believed that acupuncture contributes to pain relief by releasing opioid peptides in the brain that have a natural painkilling effect. Acupuncture may also alter the secretion of specific neurotransmitters that play a direct role in the sensation of pain.
Our licensed acupuncturists are trained in the Chinese tradition. The treatments are painless and can provide immediate long term relief from acute and chronic pain. Conditions such as chronic severe low back pain, headaches, and neck pain are commonly treated here at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation.
