Pain relief for the Austin Area
At Sage Acupuncture we provide natural pain management for people in the Austin area who suffer from many painful conditions. Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine and is highly effective for providing relief from all kinds of pain including everything from musculoskeletal pain to joint inflammation, and injury recovery. At Sage, we specialize in pain related to menstruation, endometriosis, pregnancy, or when pain is hormonally triggered such as with certain kinds of headaches. Frequently, pain related to women’s health issues can be managed or alleviated in a way that is natural and non-invasive.
Reproductive System Pain
Dysmenorrhea (painful periods) affects women differently; some have only mild pain, while others experience pain that is almost unbearable. Menstrual pain is surprisingly common, in fact, more than half of all menstruating women have cramps and one out of every seven women experience severe cramping that can interfere with daily activities. Some issues not only cause pain but can impact fertility as well such as endometriosis.
Acupuncture addresses reproductive system pain by releasing endorphins, the “feel good” hormones that are the body’s natural opioids, reducing the stress carried in the body, and improving blood flow. It is important to note that as hormones are balances, circulation is increased, inflammation is calmed, and pain is relieved, fertility is also improved.
Women who are pregnant often suffer from sciatica, caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. Lower back pain is extremely common among pregnant women as their babies grow and more weight is put on the lower back. Carpel tunnel and pubic or pelvic pain are also frequent complaints during pregnancy.
Many conventional doctors today have come to realize the power of acupuncture in treating many issues and diseases, including pain in pregnancy. Acupuncture points traverse the surface of the body and are activated during a treatment to signal the release of endorphins and other chemicals in the brain that effectively block pain receptors and supports healing.
Acupuncture, nutritional therapy, herbal medicine, massage and other components of holistic medicine promote wellness and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
