Acute and Chronic pain

pain picture

Pain is a universally distressing feeling, and an unpleasant physical and emotional experience, either acute or chronic. It hurts. It is stabbing or throbbing pain. It is prickly sensation. It is violent. It is simply distraction no matter where the pain is. If the acute pain lasts through 6 months or more of periodic or remitting episodes, the pain become chronic.

Acute pain is often reflection of events in your body, is tied to its source if you notice it at all. It is a message that body sends it to you after trauma such as bodily injury or abnormal physical /emotional state. Acute pain is often a protective warning that body requires you to take immediate action to correct it.

Chronic pain is much more complex than acute one. Not only does this disease respond to standard medical treatment poorly, but also has uncertain origins of the pain. The sensory nerve system is affected by many other factors such as pain medications, culture, personality and others. Chronic pain disables millions of people across the world.

How does acupuncture work to relieve pain?

Acupuncture is well known for its promising analgesic effects. Many studies demonstrated that It helps relieve the pain by stimulating the release of endorphins (natural painkiller) in your brain, promoting the blood circulation and direct muscular relaxation. From traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)'s perspective, pain is a result of blockage in our body and the disharmony of Qi-Blood or Yin-Yang, and TCM is able to regain the Yin-Yang balance and to eliminate this blockage by stimulating Qi and Blood flow in meridians, thus it can achieve therapeutic purpose.

How we successfully help patients with acute and chronic pain.

While some kind of acute pain may be relatively easier to be cured, many pain conditions such as chronic pain syndrome are complex and difficult to be treated. According to the 2011 report from Institute of medicine of National Academy, about 100 million of Americans are suffering from chronic pain annually. The treatments for acute and chronic pain are as diverse as the causes ranging from pain medications, surgery and psychotherapy to alternative therapies such as acupuncture, meditation and nutritional supplements.
