Do you live with chronic neck pain? Or has your neck pain developed more recent? When you wake up after a fitful sleep with your neck hurting it’s called wry neck. How about a stabbing pain in the neck following a fall or other trauma? That’s a pinched nerve caused by either a muscle spasm or bulging disc pressing on a nerve. In all of these cases, acupuncture relieves neck pain best.
Acupuncture Relieves Neck Pain Best
No two necks are the same, and no two acupuncture neck treatments should be the same either. In fact, a dozen people with neck pain will get a dozen different customized treatments to fit their specific needs.
The most common issues causing neck pain, from a Chinese medicine perspective, are blocked channels and muscle spasms. You are probably familiar with muscle spasms. Muscles, for no good reason, will lock up and not let go.
Acupuncture is the best way to resolve muscles in spasm. We get the muscle to release and return to it’s natural relaxed state. We also increase blood circulation in the muscle and allow the muscle to heal fast and deep.
Blocked channels also cause neck pain. There are 14 major channels that run through the body, 8 of which run through the neck. These channels are highways for Qi to flow (Qi is energy). When a channel is blocked and Qi cannot flow, there is pain.
Even though you cannot see Qi, it’s real. We can’t see air, yet we need it to breath. If Qi gets stuck in your neck, you will have all sorts of pain. Acupuncture opens up stuck channels, allows Qi to flow, thereby alleviating pain. Works like a charm. You have to experience it to fully understand it. Acupuncture relieves neck pain best.
Stress and Neck Pain
Unfortunately, if you have neck pain chances are that stress makes it worse. Stress has the annoying habit of lodging in areas that are weak. Imagine leaving a stressful meeting. That stress has entered your body. Now it’s looking for a place to roost. Injured muscles are a favorite choice.
Once the stress lodges in the muscles of the neck it aggravates your neck pain, making it worse. It makes tight muscles tighter and blocked channels more blocked. That’s how neck pain can turn into a migraine headache. The channels in the neck travel into the head.
Acupuncture helps this situation by enhancing your ability to manage stress. We get the Qi moving in your entire body. That way, when stress hits and enters your body it gets swept up by your free flowing Qi. That moving current of Qi guides the stress through and out of your body. The stress has no chance to lodge into injured muscles.
So acupuncture treats your neck and treats your ability to manage stress, all at the same time. It’s the one-two punch of acupuncture. We treat the body and the emotions – for a happier you.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m a dentist and over the last 20 years the nature of my work and positions required by my work had resulted in chronic neck pain. It affected my sleep, limited my ability to exercise, and was just a real pain in the neck! A friend at church recommended Raleigh Acupuncture and I gave it a try. I have to say that I was a bit skeptical, but gave it a try because I had tried a number other therapies with no success. I’m glad I did. They resolved my neck pain completely!
Very professional and really clear on what needed to be addressed. I made great progress. My neck pain was resolved in three treatments! Wonderful to find them.
Raleigh Acupuncture resolved my neck pain in six treatments! It was so bad I was taking prescription pain medications three times a day for a month. When that started upsetting my stomach I knew I had to find another solution. I thought I was afraid of needles, but after one treatment I saw how relaxing it was. I fell asleep during most of the treatments!
