Alternative Medicine Resources - What Conditions Can Be Treated with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a form of complementary and alternative medicine which goes back a long way in Chinese medicine history. It involves the use of tiny needles to help stimulate particular points on the body.

These acupuncture points seem to be connected with some kind of paths, which are called meridians. These meridians are carrying the vital energy (also known as chi) all through the body.

If this transport of energy is blocked for some reason, disrupting the chi, the well-being of the body is not as it should be and this can lead to health issues. By practising acupuncture, these blockages are broken through, causing the energy to flow the way it is supposed to and restoring normal function. There are several health issues which can be resolved, using this type of alternative medicine. Most of them being complaints of pain.

Acupuncture to relieve you from migraine or headaches.
There are some research studies which reveals that treatment with acupuncture is just as effective, maybe even more effective than prescribed medication to fight migraines. Another research report reveals that acupuncture could be very helpful for people who have problems with chronic tension headaches.

Acupuncture for arthritis.
There are some studies available which show that acupuncture can be a very helpful remedy for people who suffer from arthritis. A specific study show that people with arthritic knee pains have had pain relief benefits in a very short time.
Acupuncture in order to treat lower back pains.
This is a very successful one. Studies show that people with lower back pains who have undergone ten sessions of acupuncture have had larger improvements with their symptoms rather than the people who had received the conventional care. Also one year after the treatment the participants were still showing substantial improvements.

Acupuncture in general is considered to be a safe treatment and side effects are very rare. In fact there are less side effects related to acupuncture treatments than there are with the conventional treatments with drugs.

Where conventional medicine prescription often effects the whole body, acupuncture really concentrates on the part of the body where the problem is located. Besides this, there is no risk whatsoever to get addicted to a prescribed medicine if you need more treatments.

These types of treatments are more and more finding their way into the modern Western cultures and more and more health organizations are making funds available in order to put the treatments to the test and get some scientific results. After all, the Eastern part of the world has been practising these treatments for centuries and they are in pretty good shape, therefore it is definitely worth the time and money to investigate.
