Rebecca    Acupuncture releases my back pain immediately!

I've been coming to the clinic for several months now and I really sense a difference in my lower back.  Acupuncturist, Jannie Chiang, pinpointed where was hurting and this have been a great help.  I have dealing with the back issues for a long while and acupuncture has been very helpful. I will definitely come back.
I really trust Jannie Chiang's abilities and professionals to help me and the clinic's environment relaxes me deeply. I have received a big difference in my back.  Thank you so much.

       Acupuncture for Pain Management


While the following article is relevant to pain in general, for a more in depth discussion of acupuncture or a specific pain complex, you may refer to our menu.

The main thing to keep in mind when considering acupuncture for pain is that acupuncture works with the body, thus promoting the body's ability to heal itself. In other words, the healing comes from within, not from without, whereby the process is relatively simple.   


According to Chinese Medicine, there exists in everything that lives a vital energy which flows along specific pathways called meridians.  These pathways are not random, however; each pathway is associated with one internal organ or physiological complex.  In view of this, it should not be surprising then, that Chinese Medicine views 'disease' - and, as a result, pain itself - somewhat differently than does Western Medicine.  In Chinese Medicine, disease arises from an imbalance (deficiency or excess) of energy flowing through the meridians, which affects a specific internal organ or physiological complex. 


It is the role of acupuncture needling of selected points along the meridians to restore balance to the organ or complex and, effectively, to the entire body.  While Western Medicine has attempted to explain acupuncture as simply a method to release pain-relieving endorphins into the body, the fact remains that acupuncture treats the underlying cause of the pain.  In other words, it is not the same as merely delivering an analgesic to decrease the pain, making the patient feel better temporarily, but neglecting to address the source of the pain itself. (And, incidentally, the idea of meridians and vital energy are not so far-fetched as one might think.  Western Medicine readily acknowledges the existence of electrical and/or electro-magnetic currents flowing throughout the human body!)


Nonetheless, despite the fact that we may not have a patent explanation which satisfies Western Medicine, there has been abundant validation, both anecdotal and scientific, for the efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of pain as well of various other disorders (most of which naturally include severe episodes of pain, either intrinsically or as a side effect). 


As far back as 1997, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) declared that "the data in support of acupuncture are as strong as those for many accepted Western medical therapies".  And subsequently, the World Health Organization (WHO) has recognized Chinese Traditional Medicine's ability to treat more than 40 common disorders in the following areas:


         Circulatory disorders


         Ear, Eye, Nose and Throat disorders

         Bone, Muscle, Joint and Nervous system disorders

         Gynecological disorders

         Urogenital disorders

         Gastrointestinal disorders




         Emotional and

         Psychological disorders, as well as for

         Chronic and Painful Debilitating disorders.


The anecdotal validation for acupuncture in the treatment of pain, on the other hand, can be readily assumed based on the following facts:


Over 40 states and the District of Columbia have legislated the practice of acupuncture and Chinese Traditional Medicine; according to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), in 1993 there were 9 to 12 million patient visits each year for acupuncture; acupuncture is used in over 20 states in more than 800 drug dependency programs.


In conclusion, again concentrating for the moment solely on pain in general, there are several important advantages for using acupuncture for pain management. 


First of all, there are absolutely no side effects in acupuncture, no fainting, no dizziness, no collateral damage to organ systems, etc.


Second, there is no risk of addiction as can often be the case with prescription or even OTC drugs, which can result in an additional problem that the patient really doesn't need.

Third, compared to the cost of prescription drugs and doctor office visits, acupuncture is a veritable bargain.


And last, but certainly not least, your acupuncturist follows you progression actively.  It is not a case of being prescribed 200 mg of a medication to take twice daily, meaning that you are taking 400 mg when your condition is at its worst as well as when it is almost completely resolved, which really doesn't make much sense. 


A good acupuncturist, however, will adjust your treatment according to your progress and to any new developments, reflected in adding or deleting acupuncture points from treatment to treatment.
