"We conclude that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of chronic pain, with treatment effects persisting over time."
In May 2018, a team of researchers from the Acupuncture Trialists Collaboration published an updated study that concluded acupuncture relieved people’s pain and improved their mobility when compared with sham acupuncture and not receiving any acupuncture. The researchers also showed the effects persisted for at least 12 months after the acupuncture treatments ended. This study adds to the growing body of literature that suggests acupuncture can be a viable treatment for chronic pain, and the findings cannot be explained away by the placebo effect since they did not observe significant changes in the group that received sham acupuncture.
Of all the afflictions acupuncture can treat,

It’s a natural treatment for Chronic Pain
Traditional Chinese Medicine uses completely natural treatment methods that leverage ancient herbal remedies and your body’s innate healing processes rather than synthetic medications. We help you get back to optimal health without drugs or harmful side effects.
We treat chronic pain by accessing your body’s natural healing processes
Acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins – our body’s natural painkillers. The stimulation also releases other chemicals that either change how the body experiences pain or triggers the release of other chemicals that activate the body’s internal regulating system. This process has a normalizing effect on nerves and hormones. By bringing the body into better biochemical balance, acupuncture promotes physical and emotional well-being and supports the body’s natural healing abilities.
