And Traditional Chinese Medicine

Every day more and more studies are showing Acupunctures dramatic positive effect with many pain conditions.
  Acupuncture and Chinese medicine modalities are frequently used in place of medication; in conjunction with medications; and can be used to reduce the amount of pain medications to help provide a pain free life.  
With the increasing effort to find alternative to opioids, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine techniques are becoming more and more popular.

Some of the conditions that Chinese medicine and acupuncture can help:

  • Any pain condition
  • Postoperative  Pain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Back pain
  • Joint Pain
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Myofascial pain
  • Arthritis
  • TMJ

Our ability to feel pain is the body's warning system.  When we feel pain, we know that there is something wrong within our bodies.  Sometimes the cause is easy to pinpoint (i.e. a sprain or menstrual cramping) and other times it takes much more of an investigation to determine the cause (i.e. fibromyalgia or IBS).  

In either case, Acupuncture and Chinese medicine has has a profound effect on the elimination of pain for thousands of years.

While the effects of acupuncture and chinese medicine have traditionally been explained in terms of energy flow dynamics (Qi or Chi), science has shown that acupuncture may work at least partly by directly affecting the function of the nervous system.

Acupuncture stimulation has been shown to release central nervous system endorphins and spinal cord dynorphins, explaining part of its mechanism of action.

It has also been shown to promote the release of the chemicals that activates the adrenal glands, affect chemicals that are known to be involved in mood and pain perception, and influence one of the body's pain-generating messengers.

During our initial consultation time I go through a thorough chinese medical intake to get the history and root of the pain from a Chinese Medical standpoint.  We then design a treatment plan that includes acupuncture as well as some of chinese medicines other many modalities of treatment.
