For many, Acupuncture is a much better holistic solution to a variety of physical and even mental hardships in contrast to traditional medicine practices and pharmaceutical drugs. A more natural and holistic approach to treating health is on the rise! Even after over 4,000 years, Acupuncture's influence on personal health, happiness, and bodily healing are ever-growing, effective, and necessary, especially when it comes to prioritizing your life's balance in health and wellness.
As an ancient alternative medical practice, Acupuncture is known to help treat different kinds of pain while simultaneously enhancing the mind, balancing the body, and improving overall well-being. Acupuncture treats Acute and Chronic Pain by stimulation of fine needles inserted into acupoints. This stimulation will increase flow in blood circulation and supply great energy to maintain or restore balance in your health and wellness.
Acute Pains are described as unanticipated and can be sharp in feeling. Acute pain can usually be caused by incidences such as pulled muscles, burns, or broken bones. In some cases, Acute Pain can potentially be brought on by infections, fever, menstrual cramps, labor contractions, and surgical or traumatic events. Acute pain can be a bodily warning of disease or something that may be a threat to the body.
Chronic Pains are described as reoccurring and can be dull or achy in feel. For pain to befittingly be determined as Chronic, it must last for at least a 12-week duration. Chronic Pains may also tend to feel like burning or sharp nerve sensations. Causes of Chronic Pain include dysfunctional nerves, long-term effects from an old injury, inflammation, arthritis, or another ongoing illness.
The Difference Between Acute and Chronic Pain:
Chronic pain keeps coming back over time and lasts for longer durations than Acute Pain. Acute pain is a more temporary or incidental pain compared to Chronic Pain, which can be experienced for years.
Can Acute Pain turn into Chronic Pain?
When there is a constant over-simulation of a pained nerve, it will eventually create multiple and alternative passageways of pain. This is what central sensitization and debilitating central nervous system mechanism are caused by. It transforms Acute Pain into a more Chronic Pain as nerve complications, pain expansion, or pain spell reoccurrences happen over time.

Through time, Acupuncture has assisted with more struggles apart from only pain. Upon acupoint stimulation, the human body releases Endorphins. This hormone is best known for its natural pain killer chemicals and serotonin-provoking properties, thus, promoting natural pain relief and an authentic mood, energy, and soul booster.
