TCM & Acupuncture for Chronic Pain

In Chinese medicine, practitioners incorporate the use of herbs, acupuncture, and comprehensive changes to diet and lifestyle to reduce and manage pain.

Generally speaking, Chinese medicine views pain as a condition where the energy of the body (Qi) has become stagnated or stuck or an area where the qi flow has become diminished.

Our pain clinic not only focuses on sciatica, migraines, frozen shoulders, tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis, but we also solve any other pain problems such as anxiety, postpartum syndrome, menopause syndrome, etc.

Causes of Pain

Some discomfort may be caused by meridians that have been damaged, while others may be caused by an internal organ disorder. The flow of Qi and blood throughout your body could also be the source of your discomfort. An external invasion of wind, cold, dampness, or heat may cause pain in the lower back area. When our defensive Qi or immune system is compromised, we become more vulnerable to external intrusions through our skin’s pores. Another theory is that Qi and blood can become stagnant as a result of trauma (i.e. lifting, repetitive strain over time, an accident or similar sprain).

Finally, a lack of Qi or blood may cause sluggishness or stagnation of movement throughout the channel (s). This is an internal cause or weakness with a variety of aetiologies including: poor diet, insufficient rest combined with too much activity or overwork (ie, busy lives, excessive sex), drug abuse, chronic illness, heredity weakness, an excess of the emotions fear and anxiety, and general ageing as our Qi naturally declines.

How TCM Addresses Pain

Acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine entails inserting extremely fine needles into the skin at specific “acupoints.” This may relieve pain by releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that controls serotonin, a brain chemical associated with mood.

Acupuncture Results for Pain

The acupuncturist typically inserts four to 10 needles and leaves them in place for 10 to 30 minutes while you rest. A usual course of treatment includes six to 12 sessions over a three-month period, although pain conditions and the intensity of pain will depend on every individual’s case. To start off, plan weekly treatments until you start to see a benefit, then gradually lengthen the time until the next visit. Your acupuncturist will recommend a schedule that is right for you.
