Suffering from headaches and migraines and looking for effective pain relief? At Lok Acupuncture Clinic in Las Vegas we understand that this experience can be debilitating and keep you from enjoying the things you love most in life. Dr. Lok explains that uncovering the underlying meridians cause can lead to pain relief that leads to the greater freedom from pain you seek.
Migraines and headaches have many contributing factors. For some, they may be a result of an old, chronic injury such as an auto accident, recreational or occupational injury. For some, they experience them as a result of taking medication to quell headaches - this is referred to as a rebound headache (when the medication no longer does its job and severe headache issues result). Other causes include food sensitivities, dehydration, nutrient deficiencies, light sensitivity and poor ergonomic work stations.
After a thorough exam and discussion, our experienced acupuncturist Dr. Lok will locate the underlying causes of your headache or migraine and suggest pain relief care and a long term plan to eliminate and prevent future issues. A combination of acupuncture, nutrition and lifestyle counseling will offer an integrative approach to meet this goal.
New to acupuncture? Acupuncture is the painless insertion of hair-thin needles along the skin's surface. Acupuncture works to alleviate headaches by developing communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body. Needles can be placed anywhere on the body to meet this need. In cases where tight muscles are part of the cause, Dr. Lok will release muscle motor points. He will gently insert a needle into the tightened area of the muscle to allow it to release. He may also suggest massage and topical herbal preparations to help prevent the associated muscles from tightening again.
What results can you expect from your acupuncture treatments? Many patients report fewer overall headache incidences, less proclivity to use medication for pain, less doctor visits and the ability to return to many of the personal and recreational activities they enjoy most. Related health benefits may include improved sleep, focus and energy. Essentially, regular visits with Dr. Lok to receive acupuncture treatments can help improve your quality of life by offering relief in these ways.
Dr. Lok strives to offer a comprehensive approach to providing pain relief and your overall wellness. He will also suggest certain food therapies, herbal and nutrient supplements if they can help improve your experience. In many cases certain supplements can ease your pain as well as provide nutrients to remedy the deficiencies most commonly associated with headache and migraine. If you experience known food allergies or any allergies to medications or herbal supplements, please be sure to let Dr. Lok know when discussing.
