Acupuncture can provide immediate relief for chronic and acute pain. Depending on the condition, acupuncture is often used in conjunction with cupping, homeopathic injections, herbal medicine, topical medicinal oils and moxibustion. These modalities not only reduce pain and inflammation but facilitate the healing process and repair the damaged tissue. We are also trained in a particular type of acupuncture called Battlefield Acupuncture that has been developed and used successfully in the military for chronic pain. http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=62053
Homeopathic Injections We use FDA approved homeopathic injection safe remedies for pain. The products are a sophisticated blend of vitamins, minerals and biochemicals that provide a safe alternative to anti-inflammatory steroids. Clinically we have found excellent results with homeopathic injections of Heel Traumeel and Heel Zeel for joint, neck, and back pain, arthritis and sports injuries. Research indicates that Traumeel injections are as effective for pain as conventional treatments including narcotic painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years. A practitioner lights one end of a moxa stick, similar in shape and size of a cigar, and holds it close to the area being treated for several minutes until the area is warm.
