Pain. It’s a part of life. It teaches us to respect our body’s limits, alerting us to stop or slow down. But for those who suffer regularly from mild or severe pain, it can steal joy from moments that should be treasured, impose limits on everyday activities, and cast a shadow over daily tasks that others take for granted.
We’ve got good news for you: acupuncture has proven an effective treatment for all kinds of painful conditions.
Right here in our Lake City and Gainesville acupuncture medical centres, we help people from all walks of life lift the limits that pain had been imposing on their lifestyles. Acupuncture and herbal supplements can treat all kinds of pain:
Back pain – Whether it’s your upper back or lower back, most back pain is typically thought to be incurable. You may have been told that the best you can do is manage your back pain with medication and physical therapy. Don’t accept that! Acupuncture may be able to help you find and remove the cause for your back pain, naturally.
Research studies demonstrate acupuncture’s effectiveness in treating back pain. See results as reported on independent industry websites:

Neck pain – When it’s a pain in the neck (literally!) to turn your head, your safety and mobility can be compromised. It becomes more difficult to check behind as you back up the car, and a startled turn of the head at a sudden sound can leave you nearly crippled in pain. Acupuncture can relieve neck pain, giving you back the full range of motion you once enjoyed.
Joint pain – Knee pain keeps you from enjoying sports and can even make walking difficult. Shoulder pain may keep you from picking up a tennis racket ever again. Hip pain, wrist pain, elbow pain like from tendonitis (tennis elbow)… Don’t let your joint pain or tendonitis keep you from enjoying the things you want in life! Let us show you how acupuncture can restore your joint to its properly functioning state.
Chronic pain – Maybe you’ve suffered from pain for a long time with no hope for complete recovery. Carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritic pain—these painful conditions often dictate how you experience life as you try to manage pain so you can get by. Maybe you are devastated monthly by severe menstrual pain. Regardless of the name given to your particular pain, acupuncture can help bring your body back into the balance it craves.
Arthritis pain – Arthritis affects many people at different ages but becomes more prevalent as our bodies age. However, it doesn’t have to be a fact of life that you resign yourself to. We’ve effectively treated both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Acupuncture can also help increase your circulation and balance your immune system, both very important aspects of treating arthritis. Talk to us about your arthritic pain today.

Pain from scar tissue – Have you had a surgery that left you with limited range of motion and tightness? It can be painful when your body wants to stretch and reach but a buildup of scar tissue holds you back. Acupuncture helps to restore flexibility and soften scar tissue that is causing you pain.
Headaches and migraines – Only those who suffer from migraines and serious headaches understand just how painful it can be. Maybe you’ve found triggers that bring on the pain – dietary choices, stress, lack of sleep, and so on. But have you discovered why your body reacts that way? Acupuncture treats the core cause of the symptom, helping you say goodbye to painful migraines and headaches.
Pain from injuries that haven’t healed correctly – Sometimes surgery leaves you with lingering pain. Some doctors may simply offer you pain medication. But your body is telling you something isn’t right. Acupuncture works with your body to find the reason why healing hasn’t occurred as it should and encourages your body to recover completely from surgery.
