Since acupuncture supports the smooth flow of energy and communication through the entire body, and the interruption of this flow is at the root of all dysfunction, it is not surprising that the list of difficulties successfully treated with acupuncture is long and varied.
Using acupuncture, we effectively treat these medical conditions: Back Pain is described as pain or discomfort felt in the upper, middle or lower back. Acupuncture, both local (at the site of pain) and distal (away from the area of pain) can be used to help resolve the problem. We specialize in back pain, here at Chung Acupuncture Clinic, providing you with unique and extremely effective treatments to quickly reduce your pain! We focus on areas directly on the back as well as other points in the system to provide you with fast relief. Other adjuncts we use during treatment might include electrical stimulation of points. Elbow Pain may be caused by overuse, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, nerve damage injury, infection or tumor. Our Acupuncturists use a combination of therapies so effective, they relieve pain and restore normal nerve functions. Inflamed tissues, muscles and tendons receive the healing energy they need to function properly. Herniated Disc and the associated pain are caused by a slight, temporary displacement injury to the spinal nerve. Our acupuncturists help reduce the swelling of the inflamed disc, decreasing your pain and aiding the body in it’s natural healing process. As the pain subsides, we work with you to restore your range of motion, and increase flexibility and strength to prevent future recurrence. Hip Pain can arise from illnesses such as arthritis, osteoarthritis, from viral or bacterial infections, and from overuse. These factors can all contribute to inflamed tissues in and around the hip causing pain. Our acupuncture therapy effectively relaxes your deeper muscle groups to stop muscle spasms, reduces the pain signals that cause hip pain, and restores your pain free mobility. Knee Pain may be caused by conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, ligament instability or an accident. Whether your knee pain is chronic or acute, or the result of a sprain/strain injury, We will create a unique treatment plan just for you. Knee conditions respond very well to acupuncture, and We have produced dramatic reductions in pain and symptoms, as well as improvements in function, stability and range of motion. Neck Pain can originate from disorders and diseases of the neck tissue, such as degenerative disc disease, neck strain, whiplash, a herniated disc, or a pinched nerve. We specialize in neck pain, here at Chung Acupuncture clinic, providing you with unique and extremely effective treatments that quickly reduce your pain! Oftentimes, neck spasms are the root cause of discomfort. We relax your muscles and loosen tight knots, providing you with a fast and easy fix. Our patients are surprised and pleased at how soon they experience improved health, increased mobility, and relaxation. Neuropathy usually causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet. We improve blood flow to the affected areas, which reduces inflammation and provides oxygen to the nerves. We are actually able to stimulate and restore proper nerve function! Our patients experience a great reduction in pain, and return to their full range of motion. We find that the use of electrical stimulation in conjunction with needles is very helpful. Sciatica is caused by irritation to one of the large nerves in the legs and thighs. Sciatica can be very painful, especially around the hip and thigh region. We relieve muscle spasms, help to reduce nerve inflammation, reduce pain, and promote healing. You will have a better and pain free range of motion in no time! Shoulder Pain may be felt in the neck and down the arm in addition to the shoulder. The shoulder is a ball and socket joint, making it more prone to painful injury that can limit mobility. We focus to release muscle tightness in the neck and shoulder muscles. In doing so, they reduce pain, which will help you increase your range of motion, and improve overall functionality. Low-frequency electric acupuncture treatment may also be utilized in certain cases. Wrist Pain may result from damage to any of the parts of your wrist, and the associated pain can affect your ability to use your wrist and hand. We focus on increasing the blood flow throughout your wrist to restore needed energy to this area.
