Chronic pain in the muscles and joints can make life miserable. Standard anti-inflammatory treatments, physical therapy and medications can sometimes mask neck and back pain, but if you want to get to the root cause so it does not come back again, acupuncture combined with Chinese massage is a good option.
Acupuncture treats pain in a variety of ways, the most direct being when a needle is inserted into the body; the brain releases natural painkillers called endorphins. Releasing endorphins does more than mask pain, it also relaxes tense muscles and delivers fresh blood to the area where the needle is inserted.
This can speed healing and recovery for tissue that is damaged like torn tendons in the neck or back sprain or it can aid an area that by its nature tends not to get much fresh blood like the cartilage.
Traditional Chinese Medicine treats joint and soft tissue repair, neck and shoulder injuries, sciatica, knee and foot injuries, headaches, muscle pain, sports injuries, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and frozen shoulder.
