Chronic and Acute Pain Relief With Acupuncture

Chronic and Acute Pain Relief With Acupuncture

Chronic pain would not be chronic if patients had found a sufficient solution to their injury or condition. This is often the result of patients going through the traditional medical channels for diagnosing and “treating” injuries.

Unfortunately, unless you have been in a car accident, in most cases, insurance will traditionally cover pain pills. What this leads to is masking the pain through toxic medications.

Many of these painkillers are simply narcotics and opioids that can be detrimental to the patient’s overall health and are extremely addictive and habit-forming.

This is why we aim to limit the use of pain medications to last resort/ extreme scenarios.

This is not to say that modern medicine does not have its place in the field of health and wellness. However, it should not overshadow the legitimacy of Eastern medicines that have been around for thousands of years.

Take a walk on the not-so-wild side by going with a treatment method that has been used far longer than modern medicine, acupuncture. Acupuncture has had many medical applications over the years, however, its most legitimate medical application is for the use of pain relief for chronic conditions.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupunctureacupuncture phoenix is a form of ancient chinese medicine that utilizes fine needles to influences specific points in the body in order to improve health and wellness.

Developed around the belief that an energy (chi) flows through the body along certain pathways (meridian lines), acupuncture works to free up these pathways in order to create physical, mental and emotional strength and balance. It is believed that when these meridian lines are blocked, it can create a sensation of ill-health and pain that acupuncture needling can free up these blockages and create a sense of overall wellness.

Benefits of Acupuncture for Chronic Pain Relief

While patients have expressed dozens of benefits after their acupuncture appointments, confirming exact results and benefits of acupuncture can be challenging.

This is due to the many variances that can occur from treatment to treatment, patient to patient and acupuncturist to acupuncturist, such as:

  • the amount of needles use in a treatment,
  • the length of the treatment,
  • the number of treatments,
  • the time between treatments,
  • the effectiveness of the acupuncturist,
  • patient’s openness to the effectiveness,
  • and legitimacy of the acupuncture treatment.

That being said, there is clinical support backing the benefits of acupuncture beyond just simply feeling relaxed. The following chronic conditions can be improved through acupuncture:

I have known Dr. Boris Schwartz for a few years now. I originally came to him for an issue with my diabetes, which he reversed, saved my life there. Over time I noticed how he pioneered the latest ED treatment with an acoustic wave in the Phoenix area. He is continuously looking for new and effective therapies and always has the patient’s well-being in mind. Highly recommend Dr. Schwartz to anyone looking for a doctor whose methods are holistic, safe, and effective.

I came to see Dr. Schwartz two month ago for my ED problem. Before that i tried other treatment options for about a year with some results. My primary doctor prescribed me pill but side effects got so harsh I had to stop using them.Dr. Schwartz offered a treatment plan with combination of regenerative medicine and a new pulse wave therapy. I was skeptical first as I've tried so many things. I felt slight improvements the same night after a first treatment and continues improvements with each treatment session. Now I see how less and less i have to rely on medications to get an erection. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwartz to any man with men's health issues. My initial consultation was free, which was great. Overall I am happy with the treatment and results I am getting.

What I really love about Dr. Schwartz is how knowledgeable he is & the time he took with me @ my appointment. He took his time in getting to know "me" & to really understand what is going on with my body & then educate me on my diseases/disorders. Even though I am just beginning my treatment, I feel very confident that I will get more benefits here @ OIH, then thru traditional medicines in which I've already tried & failed!
