Acupuncture for Pain

Pain management of all types is probably the most common reason patients seek help from an acupuncturist.

Acupuncture offers safe and effective treatment for chronic pain.  Acupuncture has been shown to:

  • release endorphins (natural painkillers)
  • interact with the pain signals going to the brain
  • reduce inflammation and trigger a healing response in the body
  • increase circulation to ease pain and stiffness

Long lasting pain creates a chronic pain cycle that affects a person physically and emotionally.  Many patients feel that acupuncture greatly improves their quality of life as pain diminishes.

Clinical studies show that Acupuncture can be helpful in most pain conditions including:

  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • shoulder pain/frozen shoulder
  • knee pain
  • foot pain
  • tennis elbow
  • carpal tunnel syndrome
  • RSI
  • arthritis
  • osteoporosis
  • tendonitis
  • bursitis
  • TMJ
  • neuralgia
  • migraines/headaches
  • fibromyalgia
  • menstrual pain
  • surgical pain
  • sports injuries
