Shingles, also known as herpes zoster, is a viral infection that causes a painful rash. It is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox, and it typically affects adults who have had chickenpox in the past. Shingles can be a debilitating condition, causing significant pain and discomfort that can last for weeks or even months.
Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medical technique that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing. While the scientific evidence for acupuncture is still limited, many people believe that it can be an effective treatment for a wide range of conditions, including shingles. More and more doctors are recommending it to their patients.
