Acupuncture for Pain

The World Health Organization (WHO) in 2002 released a report entitled “Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials”. This report states that acupuncture "can be regarded as the method of choice for treating many chronically painful conditions."

According to WHO, acupuncture’s effective rate in the treatment of chronic pain is comparable with that of morphine. Acupuncture has been shown clinically to trigger the central nervous system to release pain-relieving chemicals, such as endorphins. Many neurotransmitters are also affected by acupuncture, and changes in these may affect pain transmission from irritated nerves.

In our practice, we have an approach that meets different needs. It is our goal to make the pain reduce greatly or relieve completely after one treatment.

Conditions may benefit from acupuncture:

  • Joint pain: neck pain, shoulder pain, scapular pain, elbow pain (tennis elbow/golf elbow), wrist pain (carpal tunnel syndrome), hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain
    Back pain, lower back pain, sciatica, buttock pain
  • Sports Injuries, repetitive strain injury
  • TMJ, dental pain
  • Arthritis, osteoarthritis
  • Migraine, headache, trigeminal neuralgia, peripheral neuropathy, intercostal neuralgia (shingles)
