Anyone who has spent any significant amount of time in front of a computer screen has more than likely suffered a sore, aching neck. When our bodies remain in forward bent, hunched positions for too long it leads to poor circulation and muscle imbalances. Over time, muscles become short and tight, or overstretched and weak.
Because of our increased reliance on computers, necks aches have become a common issue. As a result, acupuncture is increasingly being used to help relieve the pain cause by chronic neck pain.
There Is A Solution
At Longevity Acupuncture, we have treated many patients with neck pain. Acupuncture can be a very effective solution when treating most neck and shoulder problems.
At Longevity Acupuncture, gentle needling stimulation is applied to the neck and shoulder muscles to release muscle tightness, which in turn helps balance the nervous system.
Proof Acupuncture Works For Neck Pain
Studies have shown acupuncture to be effective in relieving many types of neck pain, including those caused by whiplash. Furthermore, some studies suggest acupuncture can treat degenerative neck disorders such as ankylosing spondylosis and cervical spondylosis.
According to a team of German and Swedish researchers, acupuncture provides greater short-term pain relief and increases range of motion better than traditional massage techniques.
“Our study shows that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chronic neck pain, if the objective is to relieve pain and to improve mobility of the cervical spine,” said Dr. Dominik Irnick of Ludwig-Maximilians University in Germany.
“As neck pain may be a chronic condition with considerable socioeconomic impact, single forms of treatment may be inadequate, and acupuncture merits consideration.”
