Acupuncture for Neck Pain

Acupuncture for neck pain can help with pain relief and management.

Neck pain and tension is one of the most common problems in modern society.

In fact, ‘Tech-neck’ has become a problem for so many people because of constant laptop and device use.

It is the most common cause of headaches and migraines and is right up there with back pain as causing the most day-to-day discomfort we experience.

Our patients have turned to acupuncture for neck pain.

What Causes Neck Pain?

Neuropathy is damage to the nerves which causes pain. It can be caused by diabetes, chemotherapy or is idiopathic (no known cause). Most neuropathy pain is in the hands and feet, but other areas can be affected. Symptoms typically include numbness, tingling, pins and needles and general discomfort and pain.

Neck Pain Symptoms

Acupuncture treatment can help with pain relief and management.

Acupuncture treatment for neck problems restarts healing in the neck and shoulders.  Where the very fine needles are inserted helps to  reprogram the central nervous system to kick start the body’s overall natural healing process to keep working on the problem.

When we treat your neck we will usually treat your liver function as well.  If you are stressed and have liver function problems, you neck will never come good until your liver comes good.  We use acupuncture to relax your liver – and when the liver is relaxed so too is the neck and shoulders.
