Many people suffer from some type of pain whether it is acute or chronic. Living with pain can become quite debilitation and even lead to depression. It can also lead to a dependency on pain killers. Whether pain is caused by injury, repetitive motion like sports or computer work, poor posture, degeneration, or stress, acupuncture is an effective modality in treating pain.
Acupuncture is safe, natural and has no side-effects – unlike many of the medications used to treat pain. The only side-effect experienced by most patients is pain relief.
By taking a holistic approach many aspects of the patient’s condition are taken into consideration and evaluated. The type of treatment used is not only for symptom relief but to treat the root cause. In addition to acupuncture and Chinese herbs, other modalities such as homeopathy, diet, exercise, mediation/visualization and lifestyle modifications may be added to the treatment program.
