There are many conditions that will improve with acupuncture. Your body has a built-in healing mechanisms. Acupuncture simply stimulates the control points of your body's neuro-physiological function to heal itself and achieve homeostatic function (body's effort to bring itself to its balance). Acupuncture can tap into these healing mechanisms that you already have. When your body can heal itself, you no longer need to rely on medication. Doctors of Western medical discipline will just give you medications to treat symptoms and do not improve your condition. Surgeons or rheumatologists will treat sciatica, for example, with steroid injections that last few days to several months. Steroid injections are often "hit-and-miss". Sometimes it works, other times it doesn't work at all. Laser Therapy can dramatically improve sciatica with only few treatments, especially if the pain is due to functional problems and not from anatomical/degenerative causes.
Pain is my specialty. I treat all kinds of pain. Neck pain, shoulder and upper back, mid back and lower back pain, joint pain, muscle spasms, sciatica, nerve pain, headache, sports injury, surgical pain, sinus pain, menstrual cramps, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, trigeminal neuralgia, temporomandibular joint pain (TMJ syndrome), trigger points, bursitis, and tendonitis. The treatment I provide usually reduce pain dramatically. Relief will last for 3-4 days or longer. Depending on your severity and chronicity of your condition, you may need repeat treatments. Majority of the painful conditions will improve over time with acupuncture, Laser treatment and auriculo-electrotherapy. You must try it to see the effect. There is no other modality like this. It is not like medication which merely masks pain and gives you multiple serious side effects. Acupuncture is minimally invasive. There is no down time like surgery. You can resume normal activities right after you leave our office. There is little or no side effects from acupuncture, Laser Therapy and auriculo-electrotherapy. They are extremely effective.
