Acupuncture Peripheral Neuropathy

There are many theories about acupuncture and its effectiveness in real life. While Western medicine principles deny the healing benefits oacupuncture, people who have felt better and healthier post acupuncture have a different story to tell. Despite all debate and opinions, over the past few decades, or perhaps centuries, acupuncture has been one of the most effective of all natural remedies and alternative therapies that has helped people with peripheral neuropathy.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest sciences of healing that was practiced for many centuries in China and some Asian countries. The theory of acupuncture is based on the flow of energy, or Chi, or Qi, which flows through our body as well as around the body along meridians or pathways. Acupuncturists opine that illnesses like peripheral neuropathy occur when there is something blocking or unbalancing the Chi. Acupuncture is the best treatment for unblocking or influencing the Chi so that it gets back to balance and flows smoothly. Acupuncture is performed by inserting very fine, thin needles into the skin at specific points on the body. This will increase the flow of energy in the body by unblocking the affected areas. Sometimes, pressure, mild electric transmission, or heat may also be used with needles for effective treatment.

How Does Acupuncture Peripheral Neuropathy’s Treatment Works?

Peripheral neuropathy is basically a neurological disorder, which affects the motor, sensory and autonomic nervous system. It is generally caused by abnormal functions of the nerves due to different etiologies. There are various etiologies that may be causing this condition, such as alcoholism, diabetes, toxins, HIV, vitamin deficiency, metabolic abnormalities and some drugs. The condition may affect various parts of the body, often causing numbness, pain and weakness. The best acupuncture treatment works by unblocking those nerves that have been damaged or comprised to cause symptoms.

We understand that the peripheral nervous system is one of the most important functions of the body. It sends information from the spinal cord and brain to other parts of the body. When there is something that is creating an imbalance in the body, it causes symptoms in the form of pain, ache or weakness. At that very point, it is important to address the condition and start treating the root cause. At our AcupunctureSG clinic, we work with trained acupuncturists who will take you through series of tests to understand your condition and plan your treatment. Only after proper physical examination and routine diagnosis, we will be able to help you out.

TreatmentThe Benefits of Acupuncture Peripheral Neuropathy

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese healing technique that involves the insertion of fine needles into different points on the body, which helps in reducing the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. You would require several sessions before you can actually notice any signs of improvement. Even the best acupuncture treatment will not be able to heal your condition at once. It takes time, and we believe that, with time it is possible to heal a person completely.

Acupuncture is all about how patient you can be and how much faith you have on this method of treatment. Because this treatment involves inserting needles into the skin, people often have a feeling that it can be a painful method of treatment. Whilst piercing needles do cause a sensation, it is not painful at all. Sterile needles are used for conducting this treatment, which may require several sessions before you can experience some really good result.

During our treatment, we do take into account other medical conditions that a patient may be suffering from. Because acupuncture is a holistic method of treatment, we aim to treat the person as a whole. For more information or to book an appointment, kindly email to
