Acupuncture is a popular treatment for many men's health problems because it's an effective alternative to medication or surgery. Whether you're suffering from migraines or trying to recover from a sports injury, this treatment can be incredibly beneficial. Here, Cindy E. Levitz, Licensed Acupuncturist, in New York City, NY explains more.
Acupuncture Can Help with These 4 Men's Health Conditions
1. Headaches & Migraines
Acupuncture has been shown to relieve migraine pain and lessen the frequency of attacks, according to a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine. By treating specific points chosen for you personally, pain is reduced or eliminated completely. All types of headaches are resolved with this natural, age-old system of medicine.
2. Back Pain
Studies have found that lower back pain can be alleviated with acupuncture. Your acupuncturist can determine the muscles involved and where the pain originates; then not only treats the symptoms, but also the underlying weakness. In addition, acupuncture has been shown to increase the release of endorphins and other bio-chemicals, which can provide great pain relief.
3. Sports Injuries
In the same way acupuncture helps with back pain and headaches, it is beneficial for healing sports injuries and other musculo-skeletal problems. It is very effective in reducing inflammation and relieving pain. According to a study in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, stimulating specific points on the body encourages fresh blood flow to that area. This helps the injury to heal faster. As a Certified Sports Medicine Acupuncture Specialist, Ms. Levitz, treats many athletes and weekend warriors to help them continue their activity.
4. Anxiety & Depression
By focusing on acu-points and your body's natural energetic channels, the acupuncturist redirects the flow of energy to relieve blockages and restore balance to your system. Patients leave appointments feeling less anxious and refreshed because the treatment slows down the production of stress hormones, according to a study in the Journal of Endocrinology. As Cindy tells her patients, she can’t do much about the sources of your stress, but she can help your system handle it differently.
