Are you wondering about chronic pain treatments with traditional Oriental medicine? If so, then you can come to our site for information on many disorders which may require chronic pain treatments with acupuncture or traditional herbal medicine.
Traditional systems of medicine developed in many cultures. One form that is undergoing increasing investigation is Chinese medicine, a rarely mastered art that is very popular in Europe and the Far East. For more than 2500 years, generations of patients and physicians have depended on traditional Chinese medicine as a source of chronic pain treatments.
Traditional medicine and acupuncture have proved to be very effective in the area of many imbalances and disorders which lead to chronic pain. Although most Oriental medicines do not use the same diagnostic or treatment classifications as Western medicine, a skilled physician can try to make sense of the pain from this traditional method, which often ties together symptoms and signs which puzzle a physician solely trained in modern Western medicine.
The results of chronic pain treatments with traditional Chinese medicine are often very satisfying to the patient in terms of pain relief, decrease of swelling and stiffness, and return to function. The need for Western drug therapy may be reduced or eliminated. Also, when a complex disorder is addressed, often other aspects of the patient's complaints are diminished. One example can be found in the common associations with traumatic injury and fright. Treatment of the channels involved, when this is possible, leads to an improvement in the emotional distress as well as the physical pain.
The experience of masters of traditional medicines confirms that the true medicine is the relationship between the physician and the patient. All traditional medical systems acknowledge the time-honored premise that for positive results in medicine, there has to be mutual trust, mutual responsibility, and a common commitment between the patient and the physician for the patient's well being.
