Pain is a signal in your nerve system that tells you something may be wrong. It is an uncomfortable feeling such as a prick, throbbing, aching, stabbing, or tingling sensations. Pain can be a tool to help diagnose the issues in the body. Pain can be defined as either acute or chronic. Acute pain usually occurs suddenly caused by disease, injury, or inflammation. Chronic pain is pain that lasts a long time and can range from mild to severe.
According to WebMD.com Acupuncture
is thought to decrease pain by increasing the release of endorphins, chemicals that block pain. A lot of acupuncture points are identified to be near nerves. When stimulated, these nerves cause dull pain or feeling of fullness in the muscles. Stimulated muscles send messages to the brain and spinal cord in the central nervous system which secrete endorphins and block the transmission of pain messages to the brain.
