ORTHOPEDIC ACUPUNCTURE EFFECTIVELY TREATS
Orthopedic Acupuncture uses fine filaments to help relieve your painful muscles and joints. Ligaments can be strained or sprained causing restrictions in your movements.
Pain can be present while sitting, standing, walking or lying down. Ligaments are deep to the muscles, anchoring your bones to one another and are very strong. With skilled acupuncture needling techniques, we can access these ligaments to help stretch them when they are too tight. Your muscles may be achy or very painful as well.
Trigger points of these muscles can be released giving you great relief and ease of movement. Trigger points may correspond to traditional Chinese medicine's acupuncture points we call "Ashi or...Ah sh**... that hurts" points.The techniques to release these painful muscles and ligaments may include use of medicated oils/plasters/liniments, Asian restorative body work, heat or ice therapy, simple stretching exercises, braces and a variety of other protocols we acupuncturists love to use in activating neuromuscular responses.Poor ergonomics/posture contribute to several of these conditions. Stressful lifestyles play a role in your painful condition as well. Inflammation is a hugh trigger with most these conditions, so we will assess your dietary habits and recommend herbal and nutritional supplements to help mitigate your pain syndromes. These are initial steps toward your goals of free and easy movement. Go to our "Nutritional Tips" page and scroll down to the Alkaline/Acid chart...begin eating more Alkaline foods to help alleviate some of the causes for your painful condition.
