A national survey indicated that more than one-quarter of U.S. adults had recently experienced some sort of physical pain lasting more than a day. In our clinics, we help patients find relief from lower back pain, joint pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, and headaches with carefully administered acupuncture.
From the chinese medicine perspective, pain is caused by two energy imbalances.
One is the blockage of energy channels. Energy or qi needs to flow smoothly to maintain normal function of body and mind. Wherever there is blockage or stagnation of energy channels, there will be pain existing in the area. The other type of pain is principally caused by a deficient amount of energy moving in the body or body aches due to lack of nutrition supplied through good circulation.
