Pain Management

Acupuncture plays an important role in the elimination of pain, and gives us a valuable alternative choice for the treatment of acute and chronic pain conditions.

Acupuncture is a safe, painless alternative, and a very effective procedure for eliminating or relieving pain by stimulating the body to produce natural steroids and release endorphins. Steroids decrease inflammation, while endorphins inhibit pain. Acupuncture can greatly enhance the effect of other therapies, as well as reducing unwanted side effects from conventional medicine, because it

  • stimulates the body’s natural healing
  • quickly reduces pain and inflammation, and relaxes muscles
  • increases circulation to speed up recovery time
  • maintains longer positive results and prevents recurrence
  • reduces pain without the prolonged use of drugs and surgical intervention
  • promotes physical and emotional well being
  • enhances endocrine and immune function
  • lowers cost, acupuncture treatments are less expensive
  • fully integrates with other therapies

In 1997, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) conducted an extensive review of the scientific evidence for acupuncture. According to the panel, there is clear evidence in support of acupuncture’s efficacy for chronic conditions that benefit from the control of pain and inflammation, enhanced circulation, endocrine and immune function and the reduction of stress.
