Acupuncture for neck pain
Neck and shoulder pain is caused by poor posture, a poor pillow, stress, sleeping badly and by a cold wind. Often people with neck problems will have back problems too.
Symptoms include a stiff neck, which can affect daily life.
Treatment for neck pain
Treatment for chronic neck pain, such as cervical spondylosis in western medicine is the use of strong pain killers, which have side effects.
Scientific research published in the British medical journal compared the acupuncture group to a control group and proved the people you receive acupuncture had long term relief from neck pain. A study published showed that it helps reduce neck pain and is a effective treatment.
Due to concerns about the safety of acupuncture in the neck, treatment should only be carried out by a medical professional such as myself.
