More than one in four Americans suffer from a chronic pain condition. Pain is not only physically debilitating, but also affects our emotional and mental health. The primary causes of chronic pain are injuries, inflammation, poor circulation and age-related degeneration.

The most common chronic pain afflictions occur in major joints and muscle groups. Left untreated, chronic pain can worsen over time, leading to immobility and loss of independence.ore than one in four Americans suffer from a chronic pain condition. Pain is not only physically debilitating, but also affects our emotional and mental health. The primary causes of chronic pain are injuries, inflammation, poor circulation and age-related degeneration.

Fortunately, there are natural ways to alleviate these types of conditions that do not carry the side effects or risks associated with medications and surgery. Skillfully performed acupuncture and Chinese medicine treatments can alleviate chronic pain and treat a wide variety of pain conditions.

From a Chinese medicine perspective, chronic pain is seen as the body’s inability to provide proper circulation of blood, oxygen and nutrients to these painful, affected areas. One of acupuncture’s most unique features is its ability to gently stimulate the body’s tiniest nerves and create a natural healing response in areas that are painful or not functioning well. Through a series of treatments, even some of the most chronic and painful conditions can be dramatically improved.
