Natural Treatments for Fast Pain Relief!

ORTHOPEDIC SPORTS MEDICINE ACUPUNCTURE

Orthopedic Sports Medicine Acupuncture (also known as Motor Point Acupuncture or Dry Needling) combines Traditional Chinese acupuncture with a state-of-the-art Western Biomedical Acupuncture that is used by medical doctors, physical therapists and chiropractors to quickly reset tight, short or weak muscles.

Sports Acupuncture treats muscle imbalances to increase your joint mobility, relieve tendonitis and joint pain, increase your muscle elasticity and flexibility and increase the percentage of muscle fibers that are recruited for contraction to increase your strength. This advanced method of acupuncture helps you get back to being active again quickly and pain-free!

Distal Acupuncture is an advanced system of acupuncture that can produce instant pain relief.  This style of acupuncture is very effective for some of the more difficult conditions which are resistant to other types of treatment.

Distal Acupuncture triggers the body to release beta-endorphins (your body's natural painkillers) which are 200 times stronger than morphine! In addition, it improves blood flow and stimulates

the body’s own healing mechanisms to restore optimal function and alleviate acute and chronic

pain often within seconds.

With Distal Acupuncture, we target distal areas of the body that directly stimulate blood flow into injured or painful areas to improve circulation, eliminate pain and restore function. Lack of sufficient blood flow is what creates dysfunction or disease. By stimulating blood flow into the body, we are able to stop pain and reverse disease. This unique system of acupuncture also targets the brain, directing the body's release of natural opioids (painkillers).

DISTAL ACUPUNCTURE 

Benefits of Distal Acupuncture:

  • Pain relief usually within seconds of needling

  • 90% success rate with course of treatment

  • Overall faster recovery time

  • No need to undress for treatment

  • Individual specific attention to your problem

 

Acu-taping is a new method in the treatment of pain, inflammation and sports injuries.  Acu-taping draws its knowledge from traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and the holistic principles of osteopathy. Unlike traditional simple kinesio taping, which primarily tapes the area of pain, the taping protocols used in Acu-taping are designed to stimulate related acupuncture points as well, combining principles of acupressure and massage for improved healing and pain relief. Acu-tape is placed over painful muscles or joints to provide support, relieve pain, and improve lymph drainage, while encouraging full freedom of motion. When a muscle is inflamed or swollen, the space between the skin and the muscle becomes compressed, irritating the muscle’s pain receptors. Acu-tape is able to lift the skin away from the underlying muscle, relieving painful irritation. During the course of normal movement throughout the day, the tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the inflamed area. Because kinesiology taping can usually be left on for several days or up to a week, these therapeutic benefits are available to the injured area 24 hours a day, significantly accelerating the healing process from trauma, injuries and inflammatory conditions.

Benefits of Kinesio Taping:

  • Alleviates pain

  • Improves circulation

  • Reduces swelling & inflammation

  • Provides structural support without restriction

  • Speeds up healing time

GUA SHA

 

Gua Sha is the therapeutic use of friction applied with a blunt edged hand tool to the skin, either over muscle tissue, joints or specific acupuncture points.  Gua Sha encourages circulation of blood and lymph and stimulates removal of metabolic waste in the skin and superficial muscle tissues.  Gua Sha treats painful conditions – especially muscle, tendon, ligament, & connective tissues disorders, sports injuries – and is used to enhance the immune response when fighting colds & flu.
