Many of our patients experience an immediate reduction in their pain during their acupuncture treatment. Others tend to feel better about 4-24 hours after their visit. Typically, 3-5 visits over the course of 2-3 weeks will give us a good sense of your body's response. If we are making good progress, we'll likely start seeing you less frequently until your pain resolves or is at least stable and manageable. If we find that acupuncture does not seem helpful for you, we will release you from care and refer you to another type of provider if appropriate. We only want patients to continue care with us if they experience significant improvement.
Acupuncture Treatment Goals:
When treating most types of pain, our treatment goals are to:
- reduce pain;
- reduce inflammation;
- increase range of motion; and
- promote good circulation to the affected area.
Here are some common types of pain we treat:
Neck and Shoulder Pain
Neck pain is very common. In fact, it is one of the most common conditions we treat. Acupuncture can be an excellent treatment strategy for neck pain due to stress, tension, and long hours in front of the computer. Acupuncture can also be a very useful pain management method for neck pain caused by spinal stenosis, arthritis, disc herniation, pinched nerve, or degenerative disc disease.
Back Pain and Sciatica
Back pain is the second most common cause of disability in the US. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are great options for back pain caused by spasm, nerve impingement, piriformis syndrome, herniated disc, stenosis, and more. In fact, acupuncture can be extremely effective for back pain that has no known cause. In addition to back pain, acupuncture is often very helpful in reducing sciatica pain in one or both hips or legs.
Headaches and Migraines
Migraines, tension headaches, and cluster headaches frequently respond very well to acupuncture care. During a course of treatment, patients typically find that their headaches are happen less frequently, are less severe, and last for a shorter duration when they do occur.
