How acupuncture from your medical professionals in Reno, Nevada can help relieve pain.

If you are dealing with a chronic disease, have you thought about acupuncture? The truth is, acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of therapy, and it’s been around for more than 3,000 years.

The medical professionals at Reno Health Institute in Reno, Nevada offer a wide range of medical services, including acupuncture, to help you feel better.

Acupuncture works by releasing your body’s own energy sources, which increase circulation and enhance healing. Ultra-thin needles are inserted at exact points along the energy centers, called meridians, of your body. Energy is released to areas of your body where healing is needed.

Acupuncture has also been shown to promote increased production of natural anti-inflammatory substances including cortisone. Treatment also increases the production of endorphins, which are a natural pain control remedy. Acupuncture treatment can also stimulate body and brain chemistry to help you feel your best.

The World Health Organization, or WHO, has tested the effectiveness of acupuncture in a series of clinical trials and determined that acupuncture is effective to treat:

  • Chronic pain, including pain of the neck, lower back, and knees
  • Sciatica and postoperative pain
  • Rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Sprains and strains
  • Dental, facial, and TMJ pain
  • Headaches, depression, and stroke
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • PMS issues and chronic menstrual pain
  • Asthma and blood pressure issues
  • Ulcers, nausea, and vomiting
  • Chemotherapy and radiation effects

The number of treatments recommended will vary based on your individual characteristics and the chronic diseases being treated. Acupuncture is effective as a stand-alone treatment, or it may be combined with other medical services to help you feel your best.
