Acupuncture needles were classified by the FDA as a medical device in 1996. Countless studies that have been performed since that time have supported claims this Chinese healing art is actually effective. While it has many uses, acupuncture is highly effective in pain management along with herbal medicine, cold laser, nutritional therapy and other treatments.
Managing pain does not always require taking analgesics or other pain medications. In order to provide proper treatment or therapies for pain management, it is necessary to pinpoint the root cause of pain in the body. In conventional medicine it is normal for doctors to treat symptoms to alleviate pain rather than exploring what is actually causing it. Ancient Chinese medicine and acupuncture are extremely helpful for those who prefer a natural approach toward pain relief and achieving wellness in the body.
