Discover the Benefits of Acupuncture for Vancouver Back Pain Therapy

Acupuncture is an ancient treatment modality that has recently risen to prominence across the modern medical community. The treatment involves harnessing thin metallic needles across pathways on the body to treat persistent conditions. Our trusted Vancouver back pain therapy experts have many years’ experience using acupuncture within our therapy processes and in this latest post, we’ll highlight the benefits that acupuncture can bring to your treatment regimen.

Stimulation of Electromagnetic Points

The stimulation of electromagnetic points on the body through the use of acupuncture needles helps encourage the release of endorphins. These endorphins offer pain relief during treatment and may help relax your sore back muscles as you move forward in the treatment process.

Release of Opioid Peptides

Acupuncture also works to release opioid peptides within the brain. Opioid peptides have an analgesic effect on the body, thereby reducing back pain issues over time. The latest data shows that acupuncture also stimulates the central nervous system, supporting the continued release of opioid peptides both during and after the treatment.

Pain Relief Duration

Compared to many other alternative treatments for back pain, acupuncture therapy can offer a significant increase in the duration of pain relief post-treatment.New research shows that a 5-week course of acupuncture can help relieve back pain for over 6 months after the treatment has been completed, helping patients build strength in their back muscles and achieve greater freedom to enjoy their day-to-day activities.

Acupuncture’s popularity has risen as a result of the numerous benefits it provides various types of patient. To discover more on acupuncture and its benefits, book a consultation with one of our Vancouver back pain therapy specialists today via 604 684 1640.
