What Causes Neck Pain?
Neck pain can be caused by many different factors. We treat patients both with unknown causes for their pain and patients with diagnosed conditions under the care of physicians. Our providers have attended top universities to receive their masters degrees and are able to interpret your MRI or X-ray results. From muscle strains, arthritis, degenerative diseases and trauma, our team is able to provide relief for neck pain.
How Does Western Medicine Treat Neck Pain?
Western medicine treats neck pain differently depending upon the severity of pain. Muscle relaxing medications, steroid injections, physical therapy and surgery may be recommended. Modern physicians and orthopedic surgeons also recommend acupuncture for natural pain relief.
How Does Acupuncture Treat Neck Pain?
Acupuncture effectively treats neck pain of most types. When inserting the acupuncture needle, the body responds quickly and immediately relaxes muscles around the needle and increases blood circulation. This natural response is how acupuncture works to reduce pain. The brain responds to acupuncture by releasing powerful natural chemicals, like endorphins and enkephalins, which are very strong, natural pain killers.
We frequently incorporate other healing modalities to treat neck pain, like moxibustion, cupping, and infrared heat. We also use deep tissue massage after the acupuncture to create further pain relief. We may recommend herbal supplements to help the circulation continue between visits. Our providers have Masters degrees in Herbal Medicine and are licensed to provide herbal therapeutics by the state of Vermont. We are experts at knowing contraindications with medications and will communicate with your other providers about what we recommend for you.
