Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that has been practiced for thousands of years to treat a variety of health conditions. It involves placing thin fine needles into certain points within the body to stimulate nerve cells and activate your body’s natural healing process in certain areas. This evidence-based medicine is an excellent form of pain management and relief. At Acupuncture Associates of Castle Rock, we are proud to offer acupuncture as a treatment option for those with a traumatic brain injury.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) often results from a violent or sudden blow to the head and body or when a foreign object passes through brain tissue. A mild injury can disrupt your brain function temporarily, whereas more serious injuries can lead to long-term complications. Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can vary depending on the severity. Common signs include nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, sensory problems, concentration problems, poor coordination, and weakness in extremities.
Studies have shown that when used in the right locations, acupuncture can help stimulate proper blood flow, reduce swelling and inflammation, release endorphins, and stabilize your body’s hormone levels to prevent unexpected mood swings. Additional benefits include promoting nerve regeneration and establishing optimal brain function.
