Acupuncture is an effective treatment for both acute and chronic pain. Whether it is your neck, back, elbow, knee, or other body parts, acupuncture has been proven helpful. Chronic pain is pervasive, affecting roughly one-third of adults in the United States. Acupuncture has been shown to effectively treat migraines, tension headaches, and other types of pain, including neck and back. This type of therapy is beneficial for people who can’t tolerate or have objections to pharmaceuticals and are not looking to do invasive surgeries.
