Everyone knows what it is like to deal with a strained or sore muscle. An ache or pain here or there that comes and goes, but how can pain affect your quality of life. What happens when that pain becomes something that you are living with on a day to day basis. Are you taking pain relievers to get through the day or get a decent night’s sleep? What happens when that pain starts affecting what you can do, what activities you can no longer participate in, or how much you can play with your kids. This is when pain starts to affect your quality of life. Many of us do not realize it, because the pain creeps in slowly. Why just last year, this hardly used to bother you “Oh well, have to get on with my life”. Another few years passes and now there is more pain in and it is a constant companion. Pain changes so subtly and so slowly that, unless you really look back on it (and most of us don’t want to think about it except to hope it will go away) you don’t realize the progression and the impact it is having on your life. We don’t often think about how pain relates to the quality of our lives and most of us also don’t realize that there is relief.

Acupuncture, along with Chinese herbal medicine can provide immediate and lasting relief for a most pain conditions. Chronic conditions will often take a longer course of treatment and some lifestyle changes to get treatments to “hold” or last but there is relief. The cost is pennies when compared to traditional western approaches and getting your life back is priceless. Call today for a consultation and we can help you determine a treatment plan for your specific condition.
