As part of an ongoing commitment to healthy pain management, acupuncture is offered at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation. Acupuncture is a painless, drug-free, and effective treatment for the relief of pain. It is also effective in reducing anxiety, enhancing mood, and lowering blood pressure. Modern studies have shown that acupuncture enhances the release of certain neurotransmitters, namely serotonin and endorphins. Both of these play a role in the relief of pain and in improving the mental state of patients.
For some patients, misalignments in the spine due to trauma or long-term postural issues can lead to pain and disability. Studies have shown that certain spinal misalignments (known as subluxations) can, over time, degrade health and lead to a shorter lifespan. On a more basic level, it’s important to view the health of the spine as a crucial element in pain management. When the spine is not in perfect health, the nervous system (responsible for pain) cannot function properly. Chiropractic care ensures the total health of the spine so that the nervous system (as well as the immune system) is free to operate properly.
