Pain management is what acupuncture is most known to treat. This is the real way of addressing this issue – treating its original cause and the pain itself. Healing most likely won’t happen if all we do is mask the pain and ignore the cause of it. By treating the original problem, we allow the body to truly heal from within. Unfortunately, those of us dealing with chronic pain find little help from the western medical modalities. Chinese medicine has a very different and unique approach to pain treatment and most patients in my clinic experience a great reduction of pain or cessation of it in about 3-7 treatments.
The number of treatments you’ll need will vary depending if your issue is acute and recent or if it’s chronic and you’ve been dealing with it for a long time. Usually, the more recent the issue, the faster and easier it is to treat.
I really enjoy treating athletes and sports related injuries. I find athletes respond very quickly to treatments and are eager to get better. As an athlete myself, I know how frustrating it is to be injured and unable to do my favorite activities.
We treat every pain – from sciatic to toothache, from migraines to menstrual cramps, from recovery from surgery to traumatic injuries. Through my training and clinical experience, I have treated a lot of minor aches, severe pain, and very serious and debilitating conditions.
