Acupuncture and the Treatment of Pain

No one gets through life without suffering some sort of physical pain at some point.

It may just be a sprained ankle or something more chronic like arthritis pain, migraines, back pain or sciatica.

Acupuncture has been used to treat all types of pain for thousands of years. Clinical studies support that acupuncture is an effective modality in the treatment of many kinds of pain conditions including the following: neck pain, back pain, sciatica, shoulder pain, post surgical pain, menstrual pain, sprains and strains, fibromyalgia, bursitis, arthritis, herpes zoster, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome and headaches.

According to Chinese medical theory, pain arises when the smooth flow of qi and blood in the meridians is impeded. This blockage in circulation can be caused by a number of factors and a trained Chinese medical practitioner can diagnose and treat your specific patterns.

“A Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine will use a variety of modalities to address various pain syndromes. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, heat, massage, and cupping are all useful tools in the treatment of pain.”

I have successfully treated a wide array of pain syndromes in my 24 years of practice as an acupuncturist. I have many styles and acupuncture techniques in my tool kit. Acupuncture can relieve pain and the stress that goes along with pain syndromes.
