Medical Acupuncture refers to the procedure being performed by medical doctor to help relieve a specific chronic conditions. The treatment is administered through the insertion of needles into certain trigger points. These trigger points are areas that correspond with the painful nerves that are associated with these conditions. When these needles are applied, they help to block pain signals that are received from the brain. This type of therapy also helps the body to produce serotonin, which can help to improve the mood of the patients and reduce depression. Cortisol is another chemical that is released by medical acupuncture treatment, and this chemical helps to treat and reduce inflammation, which is often present in these ailments.
