Below, Ohio’s leading chiropractic care specialists share a brief history of how acupuncture has been providing people with pain relief throughout the ages.

The first signs of the treatment were discovered on the body of a man who died in an Alpine glacier in 3300 BCE. His skin was covered with marks believed to have been made by an instrument used to help alleviate pain.

chiropractic careThe first recorded reference to acupuncture was in the medical journal The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, dating from 100 BCE. Over the next few centuries, the treatment would be used throughout China in tandem with herbs and massage to fight illness. The manual includes philosophies that are still used in some courses of treatment today.

The first writings about acupuncture included information about the flow of energy through the body, but they had no specific references to the anatomical locations of puncture points. This information was commonplace by the 15th century, as seen in statues used for medical lectures and examinations.  

Acupuncture as it is known today was invented during the Ming Dynasty. A book published at the time, The Great Compendium of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, details the 365 entry points for needle insertion and how the needles manipulate the flow of Qi energy.

If you want to try redirecting the flow of energy to help manage your pain, the team at Fick Chiropractic Centers is standing by to help. They have a wide range of chiropractic care and acupuncture options to provide back pain, sciatica, and joint pain relief. They will also provide exercise tips to help you get through the day pain free.
