Acupuncture is a time-honored healing practice that traces its origins to ancient China. For thousands of years, it has been used to promote wellness, alleviate pain, and address a wide range of health concerns. At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, our pain management specialist offers patients the benefits of acupuncture as an integral part of a comprehensive approach to health and wellness.

How does acupuncture work? 

Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body called “acupuncture points” or “meridians.” These points are believed to be interconnected pathways that stimulate the flow of energy for natural healing and to treat acute and chronic pain.

The benefits of acupuncture

Acupuncture has been recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a safe and effective treatment for a range of health conditions. Some of the key benefits of acupuncture include:

  • Pain relief: Acupuncture is renowned for its ability to relieve pain, making it a valuable option for individuals dealing with chronic pain conditions, such as arthritis, back pain, and migraines.
  • Stress reduction: Acupuncture promotes relaxation and reduces stress by stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's natural "feel-good" hormones.
  • Enhanced healing: Acupuncture can accelerate the body's healing processes, aiding in recovery from injuries, surgeries, and illnesses.
  • Improved sleep: Many individuals report better sleep quality and relief from insomnia following acupuncture treatments.

What is the treatment experience?

At Premier Orthopaedic Associates, we prioritize your comfort. When you arrive for your session, we will perform a thorough assessment of your health condition. During the treatment, you will be resting comfortably on a treatment bed. The acupuncture process involves the gentle insertion of sterile, hair-thin needles into specific acupuncture points on your body. Most patients feel no discomfort.

You may experience a sensation of warmth or tingling at the insertion points. Sessions typically last between 30 to 60 minutes, during which you'll have the opportunity to unwind and allow the healing energy flow. Whether you're seeking pain relief, stress reduction, or improved overall well-being, our acupuncture treatments offer a gentle and holistic approach to pain relief.
