At some point in your life, you will likely suffer from some type of bodily pain. Your plan of action is to significantly reduce your pain and accelerate your time of recovery, whether your pain is the result of a sports injury, from gardening or a serious illness.
In the case of back pain for example, around 82.5% of individuals will experience this type of body pain at some point. Unfortunately, for their problem, a few of them, will ever consider getting acupuncture treatment.
Most people are likely to merely cover their pain by taking prescription analgesics or over-the-counter painkillers such as aspirin, paracetamol, or ibuprofen. Occasionally, these drugs are useful for acute pain, but can result in addiction or have adverse side effects when taken long-term.
Only as a last resort will a few of these people consider acupuncture. This is after they have tried cortisone shots, a lot of drugs, physical therapy or even surgery, and still live in pain.
The thing you have to realize is that you don’t have to live with pain. Consult with your doctor or healthcare provider to know the cause of your pain. If you are an open-minded person, consult with an acupuncturist. This professional has the ability to cure your condition completely. Your acupuncturist can determine if MRIs are needed, can perform exams, and treat your ailment’s underlying problem instead of merely masking the pain as drugs are designed to do.
To look for a Vancouver licensed and accredited acupuncturist talk to your doctor or healthcare provider who can refer you to one. Besides treating you with acupuncture, your practitioner can recommend changes in your diet since it can lead to inflammation in your body which can cause bodily pain. Too much consumption of sugar increases inflammation in your body and weakens your immune system.
Your body pain can also generate more stress in your body. And since stress not only creates stress, it also tends to exacerbate pain even more. What a vicious cycle. To break this cycle and help you overcome stress and pain once and for all, you need to try acupuncture which relieves inflammation and can help you to get some really good quality sleep.
So, think of acupuncture first, if your plan of action is to live a pain free life.
