Acupuncture is very effective for relieving pain. There are a number of mechanisms that are responsible for this:

1) Inserting needles into precise anatomical locations creates a very small injury, which your body must quickly heal. This stimulates healing of the surrounding tissues including muscle, fascia, nerves, skin, and connective tissue.

2) Acupuncture helps the central nervous system alter the way the body delivers the pain message to the brain to help decrease the sensation of pain.

3) Acupuncture causes a release of the body's own natural pain killers called endorphins that alter the bodies perception of pain.
