Acupuncture is growing in popularity as an effective treatment for chronic pain and other ailments.  It’s estimated that 8.2 million adults in the United States have used acupuncture in the past, and 2.1 million sought acupuncture treatment within the previous year.

Peripheral neuropathy occurs when those nerves are no longer able to function properly.  Sometimes this is genetic but more often it is the result of disease or injury.  Think of it as a system run amok.  For example, it may send signals of pain to the brain when you’re not actually being harmed.
