Acupuncture Treatment for Pain

Both traditional Chinese acupuncture and medical acupuncture, which includes myofascial trigger point release, offer highly effective methods for treating chronic pain stemming from various causes. Conditions such as low back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, tension headaches, migraines, muscle tightness, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and neuralgias can all benefit from these approaches.

Chronic Pain Management

Cupping therapy is another widely used and effective technique for alleviating pain caused by tension, particularly beneficial for sports injuries resulting from chronic repetitive strains. Unfortunately, chronic pain afflicts many individuals who struggle to find relief within the conventional medical system. Oral pain medications, often the primary treatment option, can lead to dependency and adverse side effects like ulcers and kidney failure. In our practice, we collaborate with pharmacies to customize medications as topical creams, providing effective relief without these unwanted side effects.

Injection Therapies for Pain

Injection therapies using natural anti-inflammatories and low-dose anesthetics can help disrupt the constant firing patterns of pain receptors, offering relief by re-patterning nerves to minimize pain perception. Medications like LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) can also be beneficial in reducing nerve sensitivity and reactivity to pain triggers.

Additionally, chronic pain sufferers often experience comorbid conditions such as insomnia, depression, or mood disorders. While the relationship between pain and these conditions is complex, a multidisciplinary approach involving a team of healthcare providers may be necessary to address the patient’s needs comprehensively.
