One of the most common reasons that people seek acupuncture in the US is for pain. In the past month I have seen people with hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, low back, neck, hip and knee pain. Everyone has been helped greatly. I am still amazed how quickly this pain relief can happen.
Chinese medicine is a wholistic medicine which means that we do not simply want to get rid of the pain but we want to get rid of the reason that you got the pain in the first place. in the case of a traumatic injury we want to help your body to heal on a deep level so that the injury does not turn into chronic pain.
In cases where there is no traumatic injury there is an underlying reason why some people are more likely to have pain in different areas of their bodies. Acupuncture gets rid of the pain but it also can help fix the underlying problems. It gets to the root of the problem. How long this takes is variable depending on the person, their general health, age, activity level and diet.
Acupuncture is virtually painless, safe and extremely effective. If you have any questions, feel free to call or email me today.
