When dealing with chronic back and neck pain that will not subside where do you turn? While some turn to over-the-counter pain relievers and others try the often-tedious physical therapy sessions, an increasing number are discovering the transformative effects of acupuncture.

Sasha Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine, a renowned clinic in the Garden State, discusses how acupuncture offers relief when traditional treatments might have fallen short.

The Science Behind Acupuncture's Effectiveness

Acupuncture is rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced for over 2,500 years. But what makes it so effective, especially for back and neck pain?

The treatment involves the insertion of fine needles at specific points (acupoints) on the body, believed to be connected through pathways or meridians. When stimulated, these points can help correct imbalances in the flow of 'Qi' or vital energy.

Modern science offers a complementary perspective. The insertion of needles is believed to boost the body's production of endorphins – natural painkillers. Furthermore, it can stimulate blood flow and body’s own repair mechanisms which will aid in repair of nerves, muscles, and connective tissues, aiding in the healing process and offering relief.
