Acupuncture For Inflammation/Swelling

DID YOU KNOW? Acupuncture can address inflammation and swelling both directly and indirectly: Local needling at the inflammation site engages the inflammatory agents directly via histamine released in the tissue. Over a period of a few days, the cascade of triggered chemical reactions plays itself out & an anti-inflammatory response occurs. Frequently, this is accompanied by a decrease in swelling and pain from pre-treatment levels.

Studies have shown that the body responds to acupuncture by producing cortisol (located in the adrenal gland), which is the body’s natural steroid. Cortisol release along with peripheral nervous system regulation, combine to assist in resolving inflammatory disorders.
