Newark Chiropractic Center Announces Acupuncture Treatment for Pain Management

NEWARK, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - Newark Pain and Rehab Center has announced that the chiropractor offers acupuncture for pain management. Acupuncture is a non-invasive, natural treatment used to relieve chronic pain following sports injuries, auto injuries and work injuries. Based on an ancient Chinese healing art, acupuncture uses thin needles to stimulate the nerves, muscles and connective tissues in the body. Scientific studies suggest that this stimulation increase blood flow and prompts the body to release natural painkillers, which may relieve arm pain, neck pain and back pain. Newark Pain and Rehab Center serves the Newark, East Orange, Ironbound and Irvington communities.

Dr. Vincent Saraceno, a chiropractor in Newark, has announced that his practice, Newark Pain and Rehab Center, offers acupuncture as a treatment for arm pain, back pain and other chronic pain conditions.

Medical acupuncture for pain management is based on the traditional Chinese healing art of using thin needles to stimulate pressure points in the body. Western science has adapted this treatment for pain relief and now uses therapy to naturally manage pain, boost immune function and improve wellness.

"Acupuncture is an important complement to chiropractic treatments," said Dr. Saraceno. "I frequently recommend this care to patients who are struggling with back pain and arm pain following an accident. By targeting pressure points on the body, this treatment naturally relieves pain while promoting internal healing."

Scientific research suggests that the act of inserting a thin needle into a pressure point stimulates nerves, muscles and connective tissue. This stimulation may increase blood flow and prompt your body to release natural painkillers, including neurotransmitters and hormones. These chemicals are known to dull pain, boost the immune system and regulate the body's functions.

Dr. Saraceno typically combines treatments with other non-invasive techniques, including adjustment and spinal decompression. This combination of care is part of his 'whole body' approach to wellness and the natural management of pain.

"Traditional medical treatments rely on prescription painkillers to cover up pain. While medication can temporarily relieve back pain and arm pain, it cannot correct the underlying problem," said Dr. Saraceno. "Non-invasive treatments like spinal decompression and physical therapy, in conjunction with acupuncture, can restore alignment to the musculoskeletal system and even prevent future occurrences of sciatica in patients without relying on painkillers or invasive surgery."

Dr. Saraceno and the Newark Pain and Rehab Center provides care for the Newark, East Orange, Ironbound and Irvington communities. In addition to acupuncture, services include chiropractic adjustment, spinal decompression, physical therapy and safe manipulation under anesthesia. Dr. Saraceno also provides general wellness counseling and lifestyle advice to his patients.

"My goal is to help every patient live a full, active and healthy life," said Dr. Saraceno. "I strive to help every patient find meaningful pain relief through natural wellness treatments."
