Pain Relief

Pain:

Most people experience significant pain at some time in their lives- whether from injury, illness, or an unknown cause.  For example, back pain strikes 4 out of 5 Americans at some time in their lives.  It is one of the top reasons why people seek medical care.  Pain is a warning signal, an alarm that goes off when your body is trying to tell you that something is wrong and out of balance. 
Often, people suffering from pain try to cover it up, either by ignoring the pain or taking medication. However, treated in this way, the source of the pain will never completely go away.  It's like hitting the snooze button on an alarm.  Unless the cause of the pain is treated, your body will keep sounding the alarm and reminding you that something is wrong.  Eventually the pain may get worse or become chronic.

Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe, effective, natural and drug-free way to eliminate pain.  Unlike other methods for handling pain, there are no side effects.  The World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) acknowledge the benefits of acupuncture in treating and eliminating pain due to a wide range of causes.

What does acupuncture do?

By inserting fine, sterile needles at specific points, there is a response in the body that helps calm the nerves and relax the tight muscles.  There is an increase in micro-circulation to the injured area that is causing symptoms of pain.  With an increase in circulation to the body, there is less inflammation (swelling, pain, heat, redness, loss of function).  

The body can begin the recovery process back to health.  As a result there can be an increase in freedom of movement, accessibility to muscle, tendon, ligament function, and less pain.
