How Acupuncture Helps Back PainUntitled design 17 300x300 Acupuncture for Back Pain

Acupuncture is a well-researched ancient Chinese medicine that consists of inserting tiny, thin needles into various pressure points. These needles trigger energy, known as “qi,” and stimulate the central nervous system to improve energy flow. As a result:

  • Natural opioids are released
  • The speed of electromagnetic signals increases
  • The release of neurotransmitters alters

These results of acupuncture cause pain to be lessened and could even better sleep. In Huntington, NY, the acupuncturists believe this ancient Chinese medicine is a successful option to decrease pain in the back.
