Attention commuters, snow shovelers and all those suffering with neck pain — Acupuncture can help relieve stiff necks!
Sometimes shoveling Nature’s bounty, working endless hours hunched over a computer or all those hours spent commuting can be a literal pain in the neck. The neck is more subject to injury than any other portion of the spine, because of its position and range of motion, and because it plays such a vital role in the support of the head.
There are so many tendons and connecting tissue structures that enable the movement of the neck and arms, and we can also store our stress there. It is easy for nerves to get irritated in the mix, and when we add extra strain of commuting long hours or lifting endless piles of snow, this can really cause problems.
Neck pain can be mild enough so that it is a mere annoyance, or severe enough that it can interfere with quality of life. Sometimes a stiff neck occurs in conjunction with a headache.
Acupuncture can relieve both!
Studies have shown acupuncture to be effective in relieving certain types of neck pain, particularly those caused by whiplash. In many cases, acupuncture has worked for patients whose conditions could not be solved using conventional approaches.
Acupuncture is very helpful and quickly so. Often relief is felt at the first treatment, and usually only a few are necessary, unless longstanding injuries are the cause, in which case more treatments will be needed. We treat local point sites, and include points at the neck area, as relieving the extra tension there gives immediate improvement.
We will look into your history of health, and include your other symptoms in our considerations. Acupuncture gives quick and steady improvement, without use of drugs, and is gentle and relaxing.
Wouldn’t it be nice to feel pain-free?
