50 million people in the United States are living with pain. Many of these people, especially those suffering from chronic pain, use over-the-counter (OTC) painkillers. These drugs, such as Advil, Aleve, Motrin, Tylenol, and others, present minimal risks when used once in a while. But many people rely on OTCs for daily treatment of chronic pain conditions, despite the fact that overuse of those medicines damage the body by inducing stomach bleeding, liver conditions, inhibited bone healing, and other very serious side effects.
A natural solution to pain is widely available and that solution is acupuncture. For the past several thousand years, acupuncture has been used to treat pain safely and effectively. Most pain conditions, whether chronic or acute, mild or severe, can be treated successfully with acupuncture.
