Is Acupuncture Good for Pain?

The answer is a resounding YES!

Acupuncture is famous in the treatment of any type of pain syndrome. It is the first choice method in Asia, especially China and Japan in the treatment and rehab of pain. Doctors from these countries prescribe acupuncture for pain because narcotic pain killers such a Codeine are not allowed for the general public. As knowledge increases, Acupuncture is currently becoming more well known in the US.

When Can I See Results from the Acupuncture Treatment?

With my patients I often find them having fantastic results only within the first 3 treatments, regardless of how severe. This is the honest truth.

  • Coming in with walkers or canes and leaving without using them
  • Returning back to their sports game and performing well without problem
  • Up all night with neck pain having their first good night sleep in months
  • Saying they are returning back to their "normal" lives
  • Returning to work and being as productive as if nothing happened
  • Driving without pain from their sciatica
  • Exclaiming they have no numbness running down their arms or legs

  • When Should I Come In?

    As soon as possible. Very often I treat last case scenarios, patients who have tried everything else to ease their pain and get their lives back to "normal." They often say if they had thought about Acupuncture sooner they could have alleviated so much grief, pain and frustration from their lives. Often people have been out of work or performing poorly for quite awhile until they come in for treatment.

    I say take care of the issue now, you have nothing to lose except the pain! — Lea Inoue
