Pain Management

Muscle Pain 

Muscle pain can range from mild to severe and acute to chronic and can severely impair your quality of life. Acupuncture, e-stim, cupping and Tuina with CBD ointment are methods we use to restore blood flow, lower inflammation, reduce muscle spasm and mediate pain signaling with good results.   

Arthritis, Joint Pain and Tendinitis 

Joint inflammation can be a result of wear and tear or systemic inflammation due to poor habits. Acupuncture effectively lowers inflammation and reduces pain in joints. Electric stimulation when coupled with acupuncture can mitigate the pain response and lower pro-inflammatory cytokines activity on site. 

Acute Pain and Injuries 

Whether you are a competitive athlete or enjoy an active lifestyle, injuries happen and can sideline you in sports and make everyday activities difficult. Traditional Chinese Medicine has a different approach to injury than just ice and rest and has more supportive therapies that can speed up healing and recovery. There are even protocols to help knit bones after fractures. Contact us to find out the many ways we can help you.

Neuropathies

Acupuncture stimulates blood flow to the extremities to help re-stimulate damaged nerve fibers. In peripheral neuropathies caused by diabetes the approach is similar, with emphasis on controlling blood sugar fluctuations to maximize results. Studies show that acupuncture positively affects outcome in different types of neuropathies.
