How Does Chinese Medicine Work for Neck and Back Pain?
Pain is often the result of your blood not flowing smoothly either due to swelling, tight muscles, poor circulation, or damaged tissue. When blood circulation is impaired old blood collects in the tissues. This stagnant blood can result from an injury, overstrain, stress, weakness, inherited tendencies or a combination of these factors.
Acupuncture works from the outside to stimulate blood flow and relax the body by releasing tight muscles, calming nerve and tissue inflammation, and stopping spasms. Modalities like cupping and gua sha manually stimulate fresh blood flow while encouraging the body to flush out the old blood promoting proper healing and pain relief.
Sometimes herbal treatment is necessary to nourish and relax the muscles from the inside to alleviate pain. Traditional herbal formulas to treat back and neck pain are available in capsules or a customized formula tailored to your individual needs can be provided in powder form to take as a tea.
