Whether you are experiencing chronic pain from a longstanding medical condition or injury, or acute pain from a sports injury, or even simply bending over or getting up off the couch,
ACUPUNCTURE AND CHINESE HERBS CAN HELP RESOLVE YOUR PAIN
However, they go deeper than simply resolving pain. Pain is simply a distress signal sent from the body letting us know there is a situation requiring attention. If you not only want to resolve your pain, but also restore your body’s capacity to function at its full potential and maintain your health, it is necessary to choose a medical intervention that works to stimulate the body’s innate healing response and self-regulatory mechanisms.
ACUPUNCTURE AND CHINESE HERBS WORK WITH YOUR BODY TO RESTORE ITS ABILITY TO HEAL FROM INJURY AND MAINTAIN FUNCTIONALITY
A good Acupuncturist will work to not only resolve your pain, but tend to the underlying issues that have made it hard for your body to heal, and may have even left your body susceptible to injury and dysfunction in the first place.
Current pain management intervention in modern science is largely centered around reducing pain, as opposed to helping the body regain functionality. Modern medicine has developed unparalleled technology to intervene with the body, and supersede its function in order to stabilize critical dysfunction. Pharmaceutical drugs and surgery are fantastic at creating immediate change in the body to avoid disaster. However, this type of medical practice should not be utilized as primary medicine. Primary medicine should work WITH your body to help it restore its innate ability to self-regulate and heal. Acupuncture was developed 2,500+ years ago. At that time, science had not advanced to the point of being able to supersede the body’s function. Instead, Chinese medicine had to develop a system that worked to optimize the body’s functionality in an effort to eliminate dysfunction, restore balance, and maximize our health. The medical system that developed 2,500 years ago has not changed. That’s pretty amazing: and a testament to the foundation upon which the medicine was developed.
When it comes to dealing with pain, there is an order of operations we should adhere to:
- Make sure we are not in imminent danger. Make sure our condition is stable enough to allow for primary intervention.
- Utilize a medical approach that will work with our body to help alleviate our pain, restore functionality to the affected body parts, and put the future of our health back in our hands.
- Once we reestablish our body’s highest level of function, we can determine if it is necessary to utilize more invasive interventions, like pharmaceutical drugs or surgery in order to stabilize a serious threat to our health and well-being.
In order to navigate through this process, it is important to have a health care team that knows how to communicate together in order to recommend the appropriate care at the appropriate times. At Awakenings Health, we are always ready to discuss your health care needs with all of your doctors and entire health care team. We believe healthcare should be centered around the patient, and always geared toward the patients’ wishes and overall well-being.
