Yoga, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy Help In Relieving Chronic Pain, Study Finds

Many people suffer from chronic pain. Examples of chronic pain are back pain, neck pain, and fibromyalgia. Traditionally, medication is prescribed to help sufferers deal with these issues. Medication has the potential to be abused, and it does not resolve the root of the issue. Complementary medicine, which includes yoga and acupuncture, is found to deal with chronic pain more effectively and without the side effects.

Key Takeaways:

  • At least 40 million Americans suffer from chronic pain
  • Primary care providers in the U.S. are wary of prescribing large doses of painkillers as it may lead to addiction
  • Researchers found that massage therapy, spinal manipulation and osteopathic manipulation can provide some relief for patients

“The study showed promise in treating back pain with acupuncture and yoga, osteoarthritis of the knee with acupuncture and tai chi, neck pain with massage therapy and suggested the use of relaxation techniques in alleviating severe headaches and migraines.”
