Acupuncture is a very effective approach in treating a variety of acute and chronic neuromuscular and joint disorders. Its effectiveness is obtained by inserting a very thin needle into the skin and underlying soft tissue at specific points. Acupuncture has been identified and accepted as an effective treatment of a wide range of health problems including:
- Neurogenic musculoskeletal disorders
- Headaches and Migraines
- Neck, Back and Sciatic pain
- Frozen shoulder, tennis & golfers elbow, carpal tunnel, tendinitis & bursitis.
What acupuncture does?
Acupuncture releases natural pain killers (endorphins) and natural anti-inflammatories (cortisol) causing local and general physiological responses. Acupuncture assists in providing your body with an optimal environment for tissues to heal quickly and naturally by stimulating the repair process at the site along with providing long lasting effects of pain reduction and reduced inflammation. At Livemax, we implement acupuncture as a pain management method and as an approach to restore proper functional movement while maximizing the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The effects of acupuncture can be further enhanced by adding an electrical stimulation to the acupuncture needles similar to T.E.N.S. and I.F.C. units.
