Acupuncture For Pain Management In Brooklyn NYC

Acupuncture Therapy and Chronic Pain

The foundation of traditional acupuncture is based on the energy flowing through our bodies. Any imbalance or disruption to this energy flow causes disease and painful conditions.

Acupuncture is the process of penetrating specific points or acupuncture points in the skin with needles as a treatment aimed at unblocking disrupted energy flow.

Modern medicine has proven that acupuncture indeed stimulates your muscles, nerves, and connective tissues. Clinical evidence reveals that the acupuncture needle triggers your body’s natural painkillers to elicit pain relief.

Acupuncture therapy has become widely recognized for providing deep tissue healing and regeneration without needing intrusive procedures or medications.

Dr. Henry Sardar is a leading specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation in Brooklyn, New York. He offers acupuncture therapy to relieve chronic pain from musculoskeletal disorders, overuse injuries, sports injuries, neurological disorders, or inflammatory diseases.

So, if you want to skip the prescription painkillers and avoid surgery, Dr. Sardar is offering you the chance to try out Acupuncture Therapy. You can now experience its therapeutic effects no matter your insurance coverage, right here in Brooklyn, New York.

The Science of Acupuncture

Over 400 different acupuncture points are scattered around your body, from the top of your head to your feet. 

Acupuncture needles at these specific points produce natural tissue regeneration and stimulate your natural painkillers, allowing you to heal without surgical procedures, prescription medicines, or steroid injections.

Once Dr. Sardar inserts the needles accurately into specific acupuncture points, a series of biological effects occur:

  • Creation of Micro Traumas: Micro traumas stimulate your body’s healing mechanisms, triggering for your body to heal your injured tissues. Dr. Sardar can use acupuncture needles on muscles, tendons, and joints to jumpstart healing in chronic injuries. The needle micro-injuries reignite the healing response and stimulate tissue repair.
  • Releasing Natural Painkillers: Your body usually produces endorphins, serotonin, and enkephalin to ease pain from injuries. The acupuncture needles stimulate the cells to boost the production of these natural painkillers, significantly reducing your pain.
  • Vasodilation: Acupuncture needles can stimulate the release of vasodilator substances that widen your blood vessels. This results in an increased blood flow rich in oxygen and nutrients, which boosts your natural healing mechanism.
  • Immobilizing Effect: Acupuncture has an analgesic effect that modulates your feeling of pain. When inserted into pain receptors or nociceptors, the needles inhibit the pain signals and decrease inflammatory mediators to reduce your pain.

Things To Keep In Mind Before Getting Acupuncture Therapy

If it’s your first time having acupuncture therapy, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the thought of needles pricking your skin. 

Don’t worry. Acupuncture is more than just a pain management procedure. With the proper technique and practice, acupuncture stimulates not only your healing and recovery but also your overall well being.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when you have your first acupuncture session:

  • Don’t go in on an empty stomach. Make sure to eat a full meal and stay hydrated to prevent feeling light-headed during your acupuncture session
  • You don’t have to remove all your clothing for acupuncture. You’ll only have to remove your clothes based on the areas we’re treating
  • We may use as much as 5 to 20 needles for each session. But these needles are much thinner than your usual hypodermic needles. So even if we use all 20 needles, you shouldn’t feel any pain
