Acupuncture helps with pain.

A pain-relieving biochemical, adenosine, is released from tissue surrounding an acupuncture needle. Adenosine has been shown to affect the local area, as well as the anterior cingulate cortex, which is the area of the brain that senses pain.

Whether the pain is from inflammation or nerve damage, clinical trails have shown the pain reducing effects of adenosine to the area.

Back, shoulder, neck, knee, or wrist pain--whichever you are dealing with now--acupuncture is an option that works well to ease these types of pains. It can help you get back to the activities you used to do.
