ELIMINATE BACK PAIN WITH ACUPUNCTURE
If you have been:
Acupuncture provides effective back pain relief and long-lasting benefits for sports related trauma, muscular pain due to acute trauma, and repetitive stress. The insertion of fine, sterile needles into pre-mapped zones stimulates the body to produce its own natural pain suppressants (endorphins) as well as anti-stress and anti-inflammatory hormones. It is a therapeutic option for back/knee/neck pain, sciatica, arthritis, or even crippling migraines.
Acupuncture is now used for after-treatment of accident trauma patients; the results include reduced pain, increased range of motion and reduction of lingering suffering. Chronic injury also responds well to acupuncture therapy, and may require a series of treatments, especially with longstanding problems and those that have not responded to any Western treatment.
Acupuncture is often more effective and vastly less dangerous than surgery, steroids, NSAIDs, injections, antidepressants, and anticonvulsant drugs to treat back pain. In fact, compared to those methods of treatment, acupuncture therapy has minimal side effects and almost no risks.
This varies considerably based on the specific condition being treated and on your immune system. Each person receives an individualized treatment plan based on age, past medical history, lifestyle, treatment goals and current pain status. Generally speaking however, acute pain (less than 3 months duration) is often resolved in a short series of treatments spaced close together and chronic pain requires consistent regular treatment to achieve long-term pain relief.
Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of headaches, back pain, sciatic pain, neck and shoulder pain, knee pain, heel pain, as well as fibromyalgia, arthritis & carpal tunnel syndrome.
After just four sessions with Daniel, my back pain is 80% gone. When I think that my sports medicine doctor prescribed a muscle relaxer without even doing a thorough checkup, I’m grateful that I got out of that loop. It’s awful that I haven’t been able to run in eight months, but now I feel confident I can get rid of my pain and get back to training. I really appreciated Daniel’s way of helping me understand the entire process. I felt taken care of, and that’s worth a lot to me.
