Acupuncture point injections are most commonly used in people with painful conditions, like arthritis. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese therapy that involves inserting needles into the body at specific points (called “acupoints”) to stimulate certain areas of the nervous system and help relieve pain.
Acupuncture point injections can be used for a number of different purposes and conditions, including:
- back pain
- headaches and migraines
- joint or muscle aches or pains
- abdominal cramps or constipation
They can be combined with acupuncture to ease pain.
With acupuncture point injection, you can have the benefits of acupuncture without having to endure needles. The needle should not be painful and it is quick and easy to perform this procedure at home or in the office.
The patient may experience slight discomfort from the small amount of pressure needed to insert the needle into their skin. This is usually relieved by a small amount of local anesthetic cream applied before injection.
