5 Most Common Injuries That Acupuncture Is Good For

The human body is a complex machine, and not every problem has a quick fix. If you have been experiencing pain for some time now, finding relief from just popping pills or going to the chiropractor might be challenging. The good news is that acupuncture can help people with all sorts of problems – from arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome to migraines and infertility! Here are the five most common injuries that Acupuncture Huntington Beach  is suitable for:

1) Back Pain – Although back pain isn’t a disease but rather a symptom of an underlying condition, it still affects millions worldwide every year. This condition affects many parts of your life – your ability to move freely and perform daily tasks like cooking or driving; not only that, but it can also affect your emotional state – you may be depressed and stressed out because of the pain. Luckily, acupuncture has been shown to help relieve back pain – how? Targeting specific points on the body releases neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine – chemicals that allow us to feel good and happy!

2) Infertility – Many things can cause infertility in both men and women. One of the most common is stress, which leads to increased cortisol levels, resulting in more estrogen being produced by the body. This excess estrogen inhibits some sperm cells from maturing properly, while some sperm cells don’t work as well due to higher cortisol levels. Fortunately, there are methods at our clinic that help regulate cortisol levels and therefore improve fertility in many cases.

3) Fertility – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects women of reproductive age. It can cause irregular menstruation, heavy bleeding, acne, excessive hair growth on the face and body, and weight gain. It also causes high testosterone in women, which makes it very difficult to become pregnant naturally. Fortunately, acupuncture and herbal medicine can help with PCOS symptoms. We use a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine to regulate the menstrual cycle, balance hormones, reduce excess facial/body hair growths, and treat weight loss through dietary changes.

4) Menopause – For most women, menopause happens between ages 45-55, but every woman’s body is different, so that it can happen anytime within that ten-year range, earlier or later. Women go through menopause because of a decrease in estrogen levels caused by reducing ovarian function each month during their menstrual cycle. Symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, irregular periods, vaginal dryness, fatigue, and insomnia. We offer natural treatments for these symptoms to minimize discomfort, including acupuncture and herbal medicine.

5) Pregnancy – One of the most exciting times in a woman’s life is pregnancy, but it’s also one of the times when she needs additional support from her body to make sure both mommy and baby stay healthy throughout the process. Acupuncture has been used since ancient times to aid women in having uncomplicated pregnancies while preventing miscarriages and improving the health of babies. Many women come to our acupuncture clinic precisely for this reason, and they leave feeling more energized and healthier than before. So far, we’ve helped many women have full-term pregnancies with happy and healthy babies!

Acupuncture is one of the safest forms of treatment available today; its benefits outweigh any potential risks by over 100 times, making it suitable even for pregnant women seeking relief from their symptoms. With almost no side effects, there are simply no other forms of medicine that can compete with the safety profile of acupuncture. Next time you experience uncomfortable or painful symptoms, make sure you get yourself to an acupuncturist right away instead of taking pharmaceutical drugs.
