Musculoskeletal pain is pain that affects the muscles, ligaments and tendons, and bones. These days most of us are guilty of putting demands on our bodies that they’re not designed to tolerate. From the serious runners and sports hobbyists to those who lift heavy weights as a daily part of their job to the office worker slouched at a desk, modern life puts tremendous strain on the machine we rely on to get us through each day.
As a result, many of us start to experience pain in the network of connective tissue that holds us all in one piece – the joints, ligaments and tendons that help us to bend and flex and perform all sorts of functions related to mobility that everyone takes for granted on a daily basis.
Acupuncture, rather than medication such as painkillers, is now a popular option for those of us looking for natural solutions to pain because it comes without side effects and can be helpful in resolving all types of discomfort, regardless of its cause or location.
By restoring the balance of the body’s natural healing energy and targeting the source of the discomfort, which isn’t always where your pain is located, acupuncture can have an immediate positive impact on pain resolution that can last for months.
