Common side effects of medications like Vicodin, Fentanyl, OxyContin, Demerol, and Percocet include drowsiness, dizziness, constipation, sedation, and depression with possible long-term effects of dependency. These drugs are focused primarily on eliminating the symptom (pain) and are not focused on the primary cause of the symptoms.
Acupuncture is focused on the primary causes of your pain symptoms and will provide long-term benefits without the side effects. Research on acupuncture has shown the benefits of acupuncture without the side effects and long-term effects of dependency. Studies have shown a 40% improvement in pain symptoms in a recent University of Maryland clinical study on osteoarthritis. Another study on low back pain conducted in Germany has also shown a 40% improvement in pain symptoms.
