At All and One Acupuncture, body pain is the most common reason patients come in. We work with a myriad of issues tied to musculoskeletal pain including: sports injuries, repetitive stress, overuse, neuropathies and chronic pain. The first step in treating body pain is to differentiate the cause of pain. We determine whether the issue is muscular, skeletal, neurological or a combination of these three.
From a Chinese Medicine perspective, pain is a symptomatic manifestation from an underlying root cause and it is the acupuncturists’ job to review the entire health history in order to understand the imbalances that led to the pain in the first place. Acupuncturists can then address the pain by treating the root cause while also increasing circulation and reducing inflammation. This approach effectively reduces or resolves pain over the treatment course.
When body pain is caused by skeletal or structural issues we will often recommend a combination of acupuncture, chiropractic and physical therapy treatments. We enjoy coordinating with our patients healthcare team and gladly discuss clinical findings and treatment plans with outside physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists and trainers.
At All and One Acupuncture we have established relationships with outside practitioners, If you do not have established relationships we are more than happy to extend ours to you.
