Living with chronic pain can be stressful, depressing, and tiring. With the recent opioid epidemic and the regulations that followed, many people are seeking out alternative ways to decrease their chronic pain. There are two main treatments that we offer that can greatly help you decrease chronic pain, regardless of the cause.
Many people think of yoga as a calming and relaxing meditative practice, and for the most part that is exactly what it is. But because of the nature of yoga and what it does to the brain, it can actually help relieve chronic pain. Recent studies have shown that lifestyle practices such as yoga and meditation change the way the brain functions. Chronic pain also affects the brain, and yoga can counteract these changes.
Acupuncture has long been used as a treatment for chronic pain. There are certain pressure points in the body that releases endorphins that can counteract chronic pain. Proper placement of acupuncture needles and leaving them in place for a specified period of time can give you some relief from your chronic pain. Results may last for a day or for a week, depending on your body and your level of pain.
