The Pain Problem.
One third of American adults experience chronic pain. Nearly two million people are addicted to prescription opioids costing the U.S. billions every year. After decades of masking symptoms with pain killers, our entire nation is suffering.
Opioids and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory), offer only short-term relief with potentially dangerous side effects. Patients taking opioids for 12 months reported being in MORE pain compared to those in the non-opioid control group. Studies also found short term use of NSAIDs increase risk of acute heart attack, even in healthy people.
Acupuncture is safe
& offers long term relief.
In a study of more than 450,000 chronic pain patients receiving treatment, acupuncture was found to be 76% effective to reduce pain associated with headache, low back pain and osteoarthritis. Two years later, 93% of patients surveyed said acupuncture successfully treated their pain.
Ancient Medicine + Modern Science
Millions of research dollars have been spent at prestigious universities around the world to understand it's mechanisms of action. Findings show that acupuncture stimulates the neural pathways of the spinal cord, releases natural opioids, and releases or regulates biochemicals associated with pain reduction.
When used to treat orthopedic conditions, acupuncturists see the best results when combining classically located Acupuncture Points, Myofascial Trigger Points (93% are known acupuncture points) and Motor Points (anatomical location of nerve innervation into muscle).
Acupuncturists are the leading experts in the growing field of orthopedic needling.
Licensed Acupuncturists use medical history, palpation, diagnostic imaging, orthopedic, neurological and physical examination to determine the most effective treatment strategy. Practitioners focus on the whole body, resulting in only good side effects.
