What Is Acupuncture Injection Therapy?
Acupuncture injection therapy involves the injection of small amounts of liquid administered by a qualified acupuncturist. Just like acupuncture, fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points or trigger points just under the skin or into muscles. This therapy evolved from standard acupuncture and has been routinely practiced in China for many years.
The liquids used in the injections can include herbal extracts, saline, liquid vitamins, and even sterile water. Acupuncture Injection into acupuncture points activates them in a similar way to the insertion of acupuncture needles. But the injection will stimulate the acupuncture point for a much longer period of time, thus enhancing the therapeutic effect. It is a very useful technique in hard-to-treat, or poorly responding conditions.
This technique can be very effective in treating chronic conditions such as allergies, chronic pains that even cortisone shots do not help, fibromyalgia, migraines, low back pain, tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, thumb pain, heel pain (plantar faciitis), knee pain, shoulder pain, and many other diseases. It is also effective in treating chronic auto-immune conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis.
