Why Acupuncture Isn’t Like Any Alternative Medicine

For the first time that I heard of acupuncture, I was a little skeptical. After all, I had grown up being told that alternative medicine is full of quack doctors and snake oil salesmen. But acupuncture is not what I had been told.

Recently, I had chronic pain. Since I don’t know much about alternative medicine, I went to my doctor with a question. He said that I had to visit an acupuncturist to determine whether or not acupuncture was a good treatment for my pain.

Finally, I agreed. And guess what? They gave me some acupuncture. This was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

Acupuncture has several benefits over natural medicine. The first is, it works. With all-natural treatments, it’s hard to tell how effective they will be. Acupuncture is an outlier in that it is very effective.

The second benefit is that acupuncture has very low effectiveness when used alone. If you have chronic pain and are treated with acupuncture alone, you are likely to see no improvement.

The final benefit of acupuncture is that you don’t need to take it with a prescription. Some people who are on a prescription painkiller can feel relief when they receive acupuncture. It doesn’t matter if you are taking a prescription painkiller or not. It works just as well as it does with any other type of medicine.

The last benefit of acupuncture is that it doesn’t work with everything. In my case, I still felt pain with an injection of NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, etc.). However, I did not feel anything at all when I received acupuncture.

The acupuncture that I received in my initial visit was very mild. I still felt pain after my treatment, but it was much less intense than it had been the day before.

While I am not a fan of needles, I wouldn’t mind having it done more often. I have a lot of chronic pain, and it’s worth trying a couple of times before I try something stronger.


My biggest concern was the discomfort that might come with the treatment. I didn’t have a reaction to the acupuncture during my initial visit, but my second appointment with the acupuncturist was much more uncomfortable.

As you can see, acupuncture can help many people with chronic pain and have very little effect on some. If you are concerned about needles, acupuncture might not be the best option for you. However, if you want to find relief without hurting yourself, it might be worth checking into.
