Acupuncture
Acupuncture is one of the most widely accepted natural healing methods used in the world today. It is used for relief of many common ailments, for the prevention of disease, for some symptoms during pregnancy, during childbirth, for health promotion, for anesthesia, for removal of allergies, headaches, migraines, and of course for the reduction and removal of pain throughout the body.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture as a safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of health disorders including such varied ailments as acute sinus pain, asthma, hay fever, stomach ulcers, diarrhea, irritable bowel, face pain, migraines, stress headaches, arthritis, blood pressure, PMS, anxiety, bed wetting, withdrawal treatments for nicotine or alcohol, fibromyalgia, incontinence, and certain prostate problems. Many acute conditions respond in just a few treatments, a chronic condition may require as many as 15-17 treatments, while a degenerative condition may require more with some ongoing maintenance. Virtually all acupuncturists in the United States use sterile disposable needles so there is no chance of infection.

In many cases, temporary pain and even additional injury can be minimized and even avoided by a simple application of ice. Ice, applied in a timely manner and in an appropriate way, can reduce inflammation. Inflammation left unchecked can allow the source of the pain to continue doing damage to muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other structures.

Ice causes the veins in the affected tissue area to constrict. This reduces the flow of blood while acting as kind of anesthetic to numb the pain. But when the ice is removed (and this is key), the veins compensate by expanding, which then allows a large volume of blood to rush to the affected area. The blood brings with it important chemicals that aid in the healing process.

Back and neck injuries frequently involve muscle sprains and strained ligaments, which can spasm and become inflamed.

Ice massage, or cryotherapy, is effectively used to treat many kinds of injuries, including those associated with back or neck pain.

Ice massage can provide a number of benefits, including:

  • Assisting the body in minimizing tissue damage
  • Mitigating muscle spasms
  • Reducing or eliminating pain by numbing sore soft tissues

Ice therapy is not recommended as a form of treatment for any kinds of rheumatoid arthritis, Raynaud's Syndrome (a circulatory disorder of blood vessels of the extremities), colds or allergic conditions, paralysis, or areas of impaired sensation.
