New Discovery Explaining How Acupuncture Can Effectively Treat Pain


Although acupuncture has long been used for the treatment of pain, until recently, modern scientific research has not been able to offer a physiological explanation for just how it works.

According to the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), pain results when an obstruction in the body blocks the free flow of a vital energy called qi, causing qi and other substances of the body to stagnate. Acupuncture works to stimulate specific points in the body to remove these obstructions, thus regulating the flow of qi and freeing you from pain. 

While this theory, coupled with the fact that people simply feel better and see positive results after receiving acupuncture, is acceptable to some, many questions have remained unanswered for skeptics and scientists. Among those working to answer these questions are researchers at the university hospitals of Charité and
Würzburg in Germany, who have recently discovered that acupuncture causes important biological changes responsible for analgesia, stimulating the expression of a specific chemical which reduces pain and inflammation in the body. Acupuncture has now been confirmed by controlled laboratory tests as an "effective down-regulator of pain and inflammation responses", thus "eliminating the placebo effect as the active role in acupuncture analgesia".

This is a key discovery in acupuncture research, and is only a stepping stone leading to further understanding of how acupuncture is effective in contributing to the overall health of the body.

While most studies on acupuncture for the treatment of pain have focused on common ailments such as low back and knee pain, acupuncture is effective for numerous other musculoskeletal and sports injuries, as well as repetitive stress injuries (RSI), menstrual pain, and pain resulting from neurological conditions.
