Pain is a part of life, it affects all of us to some extent. Most people are able to function normally with only an occasional ache or pain as they go about their busy life. Unfortunately a significant number of people must deal with chronic pain which impacts their quality of life in many ways.
The sources of chronic pain are numerous and can be neurological, orthopedic, dental or gynecological in origin. Accidents, work related injuries, sports activities and the natural aging process can all produce chronic pain. Studies have shown that 70% of people experience some degree of lower back pain.
Our approach to pain management seeks to relieve the pain, improve function and mobility and remove the cause of the pain. Generally, we use acupuncture, high frequency therapeutic instruments to stimulate the central nervous system to release the natural pain killer substances and hormone in the body such as endorphins, adrenaline and hydrocortisone. This in turn relieves muscle spasm and reduces the inflammatory reaction.
Acupuncture is an ancient time tested Chinese treatment approach. It is a natural procedure that stimulates the blood flow to help strengthen the affected area of the body. Acupuncture may also activate the hypothalamus and pituitary glad resulting in a spectrum of systemic effects. The biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well being. Chinese herbs in conjunction with acupuncture can successfully relieve pain and avoid the side effects and possible addiction to long term usage of prescription pain medications.
We have successfully helped thousands of patients with chronic pain complaints. If you have ongoing migraine or tension headache, neck or back pain, muscles or joints pain, TMJ or dental pain, please give us an opportunity to help you. Our approach and treatment has also been proven to be effective in treating menstrual cramping and spasm as well as fertility related issues.
