Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BOSTON - Jul 06, 2017 - Many factors can contribute to pelvic pain: infection, inflammation, scar tissue and muscle spasm. When there is pain, a signal is transmitted to the brain, and the brain will release many kinds of chemicals to cope with the pain, such as endorphin, dopamine and serotonin. But if the pain lasts too long, the perception of the pain in the brain will be changed. The pain signal can become stronger when certain brain areas become hypersensitive with chronic pain. Chronic pain can also create chronic stress, depleting our feeling good hormones: endorphins, serotonin and dopamine. Chronic stress can also lower the cortisol level, making the body prone to autoimmune disease and allergy. It is very critical to treat the root cause of the pain and get rid of pain as soon as possible. Acupuncture can not only relive the pain by increasing your own pain killer, such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine, but also can reduce the inflammation by improving the circulation and relax the muscles.
Furthermore, acupuncture can strengthen the adrenal gland and immune function, so more anti-inflammatory chemicals such as cortisol can be produced by the adrenal gland. Acupuncture can also reset the muscle tone instantly and balance different pelvic muscles and tendons, so the nerves will not be irritated. Furthermore, acupuncture has been verified to strengthen the immune function, so the body can fight the infection more effectively. Lastly, acupuncture can balance the nervous system so the brain will not be overactive to the chronic pelvic pain signal.

Dr. Li Zheng has been trained in Pain research in Massachusetts General Hospital and has been treating many difficult cases with acupuncture. She published a few papers with Pain Specialist: Dr. Anne Louise Oaklander about how chronic pain syndrome (CRPS) can influence the nervous system. She recently started teaching patients to combine acupuncture, meditation and acupressure to achieve the best pain relief effect. In this presentation on Sept. 20 in Boca Reginal Hospital, Dr. Li Zheng will demonstrate some easy acupuncture points that can be pressed every day to help relax the muscles and retrain the brain to respond to the pain and stress in a better way. Reducing stress can help reduce inflammation and pain. You can tolerate more pain if your nervous systems are more balanced.
