Pain of all types can be addressed with acupuncture.

Studies have shown that when acupuncture is administered, parts of the brain associated with pain management are ‘lit up,’ showing the positive effects of acupuncture on certain pain receptors. It has also been shown that acupuncture reduces site specific inflammation and brings blood flow to painful areas, aiding in faster recovery.

A full health history and an in depth look at the characteristics of the pain are performed to determine the best approach to treatment. At this point, we can advise whether acupuncture and/or bodywork are called for. We typically suggest 3-5 treatments in cases of acute pain (pain experienced for less than a month), while more chronic conditions can be managed with acupuncture in around 5-10 weekly treatments.


 

The Psoas Muscle – The ‘Hidden Prankster’

By |Jul 27, 2018|Categories: Acupuncture, Pain Management|

The iliopsoas muscle (commonly called ‘psoas,’ pronounced SO-as) is an often-overlooked muscle involved in conditions of lower back and hip pain.  It can be tricky to diagnose problems in the psoas muscle due to the fact that it serves many functions, often causes pain, and is relatively inaccessible.  It is the only muscle that attaches the spine to the legs, and it is the deepest of the core muscles.

Surgery

Acupuncture can be extremely helpful in optimizing surgical results when performed both pre and post operatively. With acupuncture, the body has increased blood flow and ability to regenerate tissue cells for faster healing.
