Acupuncture can be very effective in treating pain, even when other treatment options haven't worked. This is true for several different kinds of pain, both musculoskeletal conditions such as:

And also internal & neurological conditions such as:

Acupuncture works on several different levels in the body to provide comprehensive pain relief. It decreases inflammation and muscle spasms in the affected area and improves circulation, which helps to reduce pain right at the source. These pain-reducing effects of acupuncture don't just treat symptoms, but also help tissues heal and return to their normal states.

Acupuncture also has powerful effects on the central & peripheral nervous system. For example, acupuncture works to block the transmission of pain signals in spinal nerve connections. It also inhibits pain perception centers in the brain by affecting neurotransmitter levels and stimulating production of pain-reducing chemicals called endogenous opioids.
