Acupuncture Orlando is very good for the healing of severe body pains, which drugs such as antibiotics or painkillers fail to effectively address. Whether one suffers from severe migraine/headache, joint pains, arthritis or back pain acupuncture offers such a wonderful remedy for one’s extreme painful conditions.
Acupuncture is about the insertion of needles into the skin at points called acupuncture points to allow vital energy, which the Chinese call chi to flow unhindered once again.   This ancient Chinese belief states that chi travels along invisible networks of energy vessels called meridians and when chi gets tied up in certain parts of the body, instead of flowing freely throughout the body, that will lead to pain and distress. Acupuncture needles are then introduced to remove factors that impede chi flow and allow energy to flow normally once more throughout the body relieving any pain and distress along the way.
One particular type of pain whose symptoms acupuncture can effectively neutralize is arthritis.  Arthritis literally means inflammation of the joints but the condition also applies to inflammation of the tendons and ligaments as well.  Arthritis can manifest in severity from mild joint stiffness to extreme painful and incapacitating disability.  It greets you from your sleep with severe pain.  Arthritis can be categorized as gout, osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis all of which are characterized with severe pain.
Acupuncture for the treatment of arthritic ankle or knee can be cured in just three to four sessions. A few (4) to several (10) needles are inserted in the skin and left there for 30 to 40 minutes.  Specific acupuncture points are selected that would allow the pain and inflammation to be treated.
Another great use for acupuncture is for the treatment of headaches, sinus and migraines.  Sinuses and migraines are more painful types of headaches typified by the pulsation, pounding or throbbing of nerves in the head.  Migraine is characterized with pain localized in one part of the head while sinus pain affects parts near the nose the eyes and the temples.
Acupuncture is more potent for the relief of migraine and sinus symptoms than pain medications. Acupuncturists sometimes use approaches like auricular (ear) acupuncture, electro-acupuncture or manual acupuncture to treat sinus or migraine conditions.
Another painful condition this time felt in the hand and wrist is carpal tunnel syndrome.  The symptoms of this problem are numbness, tingling and severe pain in the hands and/or fingers, which travels up to the elbow.  One effective technique used by acupuncturists for this condition is scalp needling. Scalp needling involves needles being inserted at different areas in the scalp and on the face and hands and the use of staples, small metal balls and magnets attached to the earlobes and face to quicken and optimize the treatment
