For the athlete or non-athlete, pain can limit your lifestyle and ability to remain physically active. The simple act of walking up and down the stairs in your house can lead to apprehension and discomfort in the knees. Pain in the hand and wrist while opening up a jar or shoulder pain when reaching for an item in the back seat start to erode the quality of life. Foot pain is particularly difficult as basic mobility requires weight bearing.
In 2010, 43 million adults were regular users of NSAIDs. These medications come with risks and side effects. I regularly treat the pain patterns mentioned above, by determining which muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints are involved and using precision acupuncture techniques to treat the pain and promote healing.
