Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia

Acupuncture for fibromyalgia

When you have fibromyalgia, you experience pain in many sites of your body, with a range of other symptoms including joint stiffness, sleep disturbance, fatigue, and mood disorders, which affect the quality of life. There is no cure and few treatment options for fibromyalgia at present, so the treatments aim to relieve pain and improve your well-being and the ability to function.

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to increase blood flow, which helps to get the necessary nutrients to the affected nerves. Acupuncture reduces pain and stiffness and improves overall well-being and fatigue.

Indeed, studies show that acupuncture is an effective treatment for fibromyalgia, with fewer side effects than medications.
