Relief from Neck Pain through Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a practice of Chinese medicine; it is particularly suited for the treatment of pain disorders because, through the stimulation of certain points on the body, it prompts the release of naturally occurring opiate-like chemicals. This produces an effect that helps patients to avoid the excessive use of both over-the-counter and prescription pain medications by harnessing the body’s natural ability to fight pain and anxiety.

Acupuncture also increases levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter responsible for mood; increased levels of serotonin can also inhibit the stimulation of nerve signals that cause pain.
