Electroacupuncture in Troy, IL: Troy Pain Relief Center provides this modality as it covers larger areas of the body than traditional acupuncture.
What is electroacupuncture?
Electroacupuncture is an innovative technique in which electricity is used to help enhance the benefits of traditional acupuncture. While electroacupuncture may be new to most people, when compared to traditional acupuncture it is has shown to provide effective results when used in the treatment of neurological diseases such as chronic pain, and muscle spasms.
How does electroacupuncture work?
Electroacupuncture works with metallic needles that are inserted at specific points along your body. These needles are connected to a device that generates electrical impulses through small clips. A benefit of choosing electroacupuncture over other modalities is that it covers larger areas of your body. This feature makes this type of acupuncture more effective than traditional acupuncture.
Who can benefit from electroacupuncture?
Everyone can benefit from electroacupuncture. It doesn’t matter if you are a younger athlete with pain from overused or injured muscles or an elderly person suffering from degenerative joint disease. Electroacupuncture helps activate your sympathetic nerve fibers which causes a release of endogenous opioids such as endorphins, which help to reduce inflammation. These activated nerve fibers also help reduce the sensation of
persistent pain making this technique a great alternative for chronic pain.
