Acupuncture for Neurological Conditions

Because our brain and nervous system plays such an important role in our daily functioning, health conditions involving the brain, spinal cord, or nerves can be incredibly debilitating. However, being diagnosed with a neurological disorder does not mean your quality of life has to suffer.

 

Adding acupuncture to your treatment regimen can help you regain mobility and dexterity, reduce pain, and reduce paresthesias. In addition, regular acupuncture can help reduce daily symptoms and frequency of ‘flares’ for chronic neurological conditions. 

If you are unsure if acupuncture can help with your specific neurological concerns, call our office at (385)242-0649 or email info{at}flowacupuncture.org to answer any questions you may have.

conditions such as MS, Fibromyalgia, and Parkinson's

Acupuncture has been proven to relieve numerous symptoms from chronic neurological conditions like Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease. Acupuncture can improve symptoms of fixed or moving chronic pain, fatigue, numbness, tremor, balance and coordination issues and many more. Many of our patients with fibromyalgia or MS will attest to regular acupuncture keeping 'flares' and major episodes of their conditions at bay while also improving quality of life.

Acupuncture for

Stroke Recovery

Acupuncture can be an effective tool in addition to regular care for post-stroke recovery. The documentary 9,000 Needles is an incredible introduction to acupuncture for stroke recovery.  Regular and very frequent acupuncture treatments started as soon as possible after a stroke may improve and help restore cognitive and motor function after a stroke or TIA.

Acupuncture for

Bell's Palsy Recovery

Bell’s Palsy is a sudden condition that causes the muscles of one side of the face to become weak or temporarily paralyzed. The cause of Bell’s Palsy is unknown to the medical community, and most cases resolve on their own over time. However, the condition can cause pain in the face and head, migraines, stress, and difficulty chewing and speaking. Acupuncture is found to be beneficial in shortening recovery time of Bell’s Palsy and reducing pain and discomfort.

Relief from 

peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is numbness/tingling or extreme cold/burning sensations in the toes, feet and fingers. It can be caused by diabetes, chemotherapy, or unknown causes and its effect is profound on quality of life. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce discomfort and sensation (or numbness) due to peripheral neuropathy, and treatment is recommended once weekly for 6-12 weeks for best results.
