What Does Acupuncture Treat?

  • Pain Management. Currently there are very conclusive studies proving acupuncture’s effectiveness for knee osteoarthritis pain and low back pain. I treat all types of pain including headaches. Having a long history of working with orthopedic and surgical patients, many local physicians send patients to my office as part of a team approach to speed recovery. When pain is well managed patients can get back to doing the activities they enjoy.
  • Mind and Body Connection. Patients are often surprised to notice a positive mood change when they are being treated for physical issues. I explain to them when physical energy is unblocked in the body, emotional energy moves too. The mind and body are always connected. Using acupuncture and traditional Chinese herbal medicine I can treat a wide Varity of complaints. The World Health Organization recognizes acupunctures effectiveness for over 40 common disorders!
