Acupuncture works primarily because of its interaction with spinal impulse and pain processing, which control both the conscious perception of pain and the unconscious perception of different body parts as a response to various stimuli. 
Acupuncture is based on the distribution of nerves, blood vessels, arteries, and the lymphatic system, and on muscle distribution specific to pathology and injury. Proper needle placement and stimulation control pain to promote healing which leads to better function. Many injuries respond well with minimal intervention.
Acupuncture can affect the release of endorphins and the related substances enkephalins and dynorphins, our body’s opiods. Acupuncture is often an ideal way to treat acute and chronic pain because it alters the body’s neurochemistry.
