Live Pain Free!
One of the most common questions I get when people find out I am an acupuncturist is “does that stuff really work?”. When I respond with “of course it works!” I am met with the question “What is it good for?” One area where acupuncture has performed marvelously both clinically and in randomized controlled trials is Analgesia (pain relief). I have included a non-exhaustive list of conditions where acupuncture has proven beneficial. If you find yourself suffering through, or needing help with any of the following conditions I strongly recommend you consider acupuncture as it carries with it no side effects and an enormous potential to improve your quality of life.
Acupuncture offers relief from chronic pain! If you find yourself like so many others hoping to prevent surgery or recover from it, clasping with a regular and desperate claw to a bottle of pills that just doesn’t seem to do the trick, you should consider the fact that over the counter medications and prescription pharmaceuticals most often slow the healing process thereby drawing out the time for which you must endure the pain. Acupuncture works with the natural healing properties of the body and reduces both severity and duration thereby accelerating recovery from any pain!
