Acupuncture for Seniors

By Toni Twitty

As we get older, our aches and pains become a little more pronounced and life begins to create some new challenges. For many seniors, schedules become impacted with doctor’s appointments and trips to the pharmacy. If you haven’t tried acupuncture, you should give it a try as it can greatly help some of the greatest health challenges facing seniors today. Studies have shown that acupuncture is highly effective at treating chronic pain conditions which become more common as we age. For example, acupuncture has been proven to be a powerful tool in addressing the inflammation common in arthritis and pain conidtions, which then relieves the pain, discomfort, and swelling that often comes with disease.

Acupuncture has been shown to be highly effective at treating back and neck pain as well as neuropathy pain, particularly for those with diabetes. Neuropathy impacts the peripheral nerves of the body and for those suffering from it, it feels like a tingling, itching, burning, or numb sensation in the legs or arms. Acupuncture helps by reducing inflammation and promoting nerve conduction. Get back to living your best life!
