Treating acute and chronic pain with acupuncture
If you suffer from physical pain, you are not alone. In fact, a national survey found that more than one-quarter of American adults had recently experienced some sort of pain lasting more than a day. Rather than seeking over the counter or prescription medications, Acupuncture is a safe way to painlessly reduce or eliminate pain without drugs or invasive procedures.
Pain Management Acupuncture can successfully treat all types of pain including:
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Low-back pain
• Menstrual cramps
• Myofascial pain
• Back/Neck pain
• Osteoarthritis/knee pain
• Postoperative/dental pain
• Golfers/Tennis elbow
In the language of Traditional Chinese Medicine, pain occurs when there is stagnation (a lack of function and circulation) in an area in the body. By selecting specific points on the body, the acupuncturist is able to restore anatomical function, relieve pain and allow the body to heal itself. It is important to understand that acupuncturists do not solely treat pain but also treat the underlying causes and offer corrective exercises and stretches, ensuring the condition does not return
Additionally, while being treated for pain, acupuncture patients will experience a greater sense of well-being and improved overall health.
