  • Analgesic mechanisms in acupuncture

  • Everyone is accompanied by pain. These may be recurrent migraines, menstrual cramps, backaches or those associated with diseases. We deal with them differently - from reaching for painkillers, to biting teeth and trying to wait. However, not everyone knows that acupuncture has been an effective method for eliminating all types of pain for centuries.

  • One theory of pain relief is that the two external stimuli that cause pain will soften. Sticking needles with acupuncture points, in which there are groups of receptors and intersections of different types of fibers - depending on their thickness, impulses run faster or slower - causes an analgesic reaction.

  • But speaking more vividly. Thick fibers, through which impulses run faster, send sensory, tactile and thermal stimuli. Thin fibers are responsible for transmitting pain impulses. So when, for example, we pinch someone or hit and at the same time puncture the appropriate acupuncture point, we will trigger a micro race between pain impulses (pinching) and sensory induced puncture. The latter, transmitted through thicker fibers, reach the spinal cord faster. With priority, they block the corresponding core segments. The pain impulse that arrives later is therefore ignored.

  • Acupuncture evolved into an independent medical specialty during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), and a separate medical faculty was established to teach this method. Earlier, acupuncture was family knowledge passed on in clans. In 1027 bronze figures were cast, on which acupuncture points and meridians were marked. Nowadays, you can buy similar miniature models made of plastic. Doctor Wang Wei Yin also wrote textbooks on acupuncture that have served medical students for centuries.

  • Acupuncture also initiates the production of serotonin, norepinephrine and acetylquinine, however, currently, there is no accurate research confirming their effect on pain reduction.

  • The puncture works so well and is so strong that it is used by doctors of Traditional Chinese Medicine in anesthesiology and anesthesia without pharmacological support.
