Pain Management & Orthopedics
Chronic pain is an epidemic in the U.S. and the most common reason people seek acupuncture and integrative therapies. Studies show that acupuncture relieves both acute and chronic pain by stimulating the release of endorphins, decreasing inflammation, increasing range of motion, and increasing healing. We recognize that along with chronic pain, you may also suffer from insomnia, anxiety, digestive concerns, emotional stressors, reduced functioning of the immune system, and withdrawal or overuse of pain medications. Individuals suffering from orthopedic or post-surgical pain, sports injuries, intercostal neuralgia, back pain, sciatica, arthritis, migraines, nerve compression syndrome, gynecological pain conditions, osteoarthritis, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, or opioid dependence may experience relief using our integrative approach.

Rheumatology & Autoimmune
Rheumatic diseases can cause joint pain, chronic inflammation, and loss of range of motion. Studies have shown that acupuncture and electroacupuncture can significantly lower factors associated with chronic inflammation such as tumor necrosis factor-α and vascular endothelial growth factor.

Acupuncture has been shown to help in conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, gout, lupus, Lyme disease, osteoporosis, polymyalgia rheumatica, scleroderma, Sjogren’s syndrome, and more.
