Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years as a natural way to treat various health conditions. One of its many benefits is its ability to boost the immune system.
The immune system is the body’s defense mechanism against illnesses and diseases. When it’s working well, it can prevent infections and keep you healthy. However, when it’s not functioning properly, it can lead to a weakened immune system and leave you susceptible to illnesses. At Monmouth Pain, we offer acupuncture as part of our holistic approach to healthcare. If you’re looking for a natural way to strengthen your immune system and stay healthy, acupuncture may be the solution you’ve been searching for.
How Acupuncture Can Help Boost Your Immune System
Acupuncture works by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. When the needles are inserted into specific points on the body, they activate the nervous system and increase blood flow. This, in turn, triggers the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers that also help to reduce inflammation. When it comes to the immune system, acupuncture can help in several ways. First, it can help to regulate the immune response. This means that if your immune system is overactive (as is the case with autoimmune disorders), acupuncture can help to calm it down. Conversely, if your immune system is underactive, acupuncture can help to boost its activity.
Acupuncture can also help to reduce stress, which is important for immune function. Stress can weaken the immune system and make you more susceptible to illness. By promoting relaxation and reducing stress, acupuncture can help to keep your immune system functioning at its best. Finally, acupuncture can help to reduce inflammation, which is a common cause of many health problems. Chronic inflammation can lead to a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, heart disease, and cancer. By reducing inflammation, acupuncture can help to prevent these conditions from developing and keep you healthy.
Acupuncture for Immune System Support
Whether you’re dealing with a chronic condition or simply looking to boost your immune system, our experienced acupuncturists can help. During your acupuncture session, you’ll lie comfortably on a treatment table while the acupuncturist inserts thin needles into specific points on your body. You may feel a slight tingling or sensation of warmth, but the treatment is generally painless. Acupuncture is a safe and effective way to boost your immune system and stay healthy.

Did you know there are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and is also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease. Osteoarthritis is a result of “wear and tear” on the joint overtime, causing the protective cartilage that provides cushion at the ends of your bones to wear down, and commonly affects the joints of the hands, knees, hips, and spine. This often results in pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion at the joint. Arthritis symptoms may remain the same, but often progress with time, resulting in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities, and even joint deformity.
Inflammatory arthritis is the result of an overactive immune system, causing inflammation of the joints. Common types of inflammatory arthritis include rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis, and even gout, just to name a few. Unlike OA, which is caused by physical wear and tear, inflammatory arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, and is the result of a pathological misfiring of immune cells attacking healthy tissue and causing inflammation at the joint. Symptoms include joint pain and stiffness, swelling, redness, warmth at joints, weakness, and fatigue. Unlike OA, inflammatory arthritis conditions often affect multiple joints at once, tend to be symmetrical in nature (affecting both sides of the body), and symptoms can fluctuate in severity, known as “flares.” According to a 2009 study conducted by the Outcome Measures in Rheumatology Clinical Trials (OMERACT) RA Flare Group, the danger of untreated RA flares is they can place you at greater risk of joint damage, poorer long-term outcomes, and even contribute to worsening cardiovascular disease. Because of this, it’s important to listen to your body and be able to identify a flare when it starts and begin early interventions.
While both forms of arthritis vary in their onset, both are manageable with physical activity, lifestyle modification, and pain management interventions. At Monmouth Pain, our comprehensive team is well equipped in treating all your needs. Monmouth Pain’s number one objective is to provide pain management strategies that allow patients to rehabilitate without excessive drug use or unnecessary surgery. Because of that, our pain management doctors offer an abundance of less invasive treatment options, from steroid injections to viscosupplementation, and more. In addition to our pain management team, our physical therapists are skilled in various techniques and approaches, which are all tailored to your comfort. Our physical and occupational therapists are here to assist in regaining range of motion and strength, as well as educate you on joint protection techniques and environmental modifications to make daily tasks easier and pain free. In addition to therapy, our acupuncture team plays a critical role in helping you navigate your symptoms and manage pain.
If you have arthritis or are struggling with pain, please stop in to one of our offices and let us develop a customized plan that is comfortable for you!

Acupuncture is a science and art that originates in China and has spread its way across the world.
The practice uses tiny, sterile needles at specific points along the twelve meridians. Each meridian corresponds with a different organ system. Acupuncture improves the balance and flow of energy through the meridians to ensure there are no blockages allowing each organ system can work to the best of their ability.
The mind and body connection can become entangled, blocking energy. Thoughts and emotions of the mind can create a physiological response which directly influences emotional and physical health. It is important to keep the energy flowing freely otherwise the pipes get clogged, allowing health issues to arise.
Thankfully, our skilled acupuncturists at Monmouth Pain are here to unblock your energy traffic jams. Not only will they help ease pain, they can also reduce inflammation, stimulate nerve function, improve digestion, boost your immune system and help you sleep more soundly.
