Has life been a pain the the neck lately? Do you spend hours on computers and have a sedentary job? Neck pain is one of the most common pain syndromes. Neck pain can be caused by poor posture and muscular tension in the neck and upper back. Neck pain can also be the result of cervical disc herniation and pinched nerves. Acupuncture to the rescue!
A recent study showed acupuncture is more effective that drugs for treatment of disc herniation of the neck. Cervical herniation symptoms can include neck pain that can radiate down the arms into the hands with numbness and/or weakness. The study contemplated how acupuncture therapy stacked up against Meloxican, an anti-inflammatory drug with analgesic effects. Researchers used objective testing including X-ray and CT scans. Acupuncture therapy was found more effective for long and short term treatment of cervical disc herniations.
