What’s the Cause of Your Tremors — and Can Acupuncture Help?
Tremors can be as confusing as they are alarming. If you find that your hand, neck, voice or another part of your body is shaking when it’s always been completely calm and still in the past, you’re no doubt scrambling for explanations and solutions. Let us examine the types and causes of common tremor disorders — and how Traditional Chinese Medicine from our acupuncturist in Las Vegas, Dr. Peter Lok, may be just what the doctor ordered.
What are Tremors?
Tremors may take a variety of forms and appear for a variety of reasons. They may be a stable condition, for instance, or they may get progressively worse. Some tremors occur with movement, while others are present when the afflicted body part is motionless. Medical conditions associated with tremors include:
- Anxiety disorders
- Excessive amounts of caffeine or other drugs
- Neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s
- Toxin accumulation such as mercury poisoning
- Liver or kidney dysfunction
- Nerve damage due to an injury
Some cases of tremor may have no clear connection to a known medical issue at all.
Acupuncture for Tremors in Las Vegas
It’s worth noting that the liver and kidney ailments identified by Western medicine as causes of tremor have a correlation to Traditional Chinese Medicine, in which tremor is associated with a Liver-Kidney essence imbalance which manifests itself as “interior wind” symptoms.
Our acupuncturist can evaluate your tongue and other physical features carefully to arrive at a clear understanding of your underlying problem. Acupuncture focuses on the points that regulate liver and kidney function can often aid a case of tremor. Chinese herbal supplements can also help overcome tremors stemming from toxic overload. We can even alleviate anxiety-based tremors by treating the underlying anxiety through acupuncture.
