Chronic pain is a major problem in the United States. According to a study by Johns Hopkins University, it affects more people than heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined. Chronic pain can be debilitating, preventing sufferers from enjoying their lives.
Chinese medicine offers a comprehensive and holistic approach to chronic pain management. Herbal remedies, acupuncture, and chiropractic solutions are all part of Chinese medicine’s approach to managing pain.
Acupuncture is one of the most popular methods of pain relief in Chinese medicine. It involves the placement of thin needles into specific points on the body. This stimulates the nervous system and releases endorphins, which are natural painkillers.
Chinese medicine practitioners may also recommend herbal remedies for pain relief. Herbs can be taken internally or used externally in the form of compresses or ointments. Common herbs used for pain relief include ginger, turmeric, and licorice root.
