Acupuncture in Saratoga Springs for Pain

Acupuncture Saratoga Springs provides excellent treatment for acute or chronic pain. Acupuncture releases endorphins (our body’s own pain-killers) from the anterior pituitary gland and stimulates immune response. Acupuncture, herbs and homeopathy reduce inflammation and increase circulation.

Much research has demonstrated that patients with acute pain respond extremely well to acupuncture treatment (approximately 6-10 treatments) and that chronic conditions require more treatment with significant improvement in symptoms. Patients who had taken analgesics before acupuncture therapy were able to either discontinue them completely, or reduce their doses dramatically.

If you have experienced trauma and pain from an accident, please note that research also supports the use of acupuncture for after-treatment of accident patients. Acupuncture presents a valuable therapeutic option – resulting in reduced pain, decreased edema, increased range of motion and reduction of long standing complaints following accidents.

As we all know, prevention of sports injuries should be the main focus although it is not always the way it works. East meets West for the best in treatment of sports injuries. Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe, natural and drug-free alternative that can provide immediate relief and long-lasting benefits. Alone or combined with homeopathic medicines, it can help you return to peak performance and optimal health by restoring the proper flow of Qi and blood. This speeds recovery time, addresses the root cause of the problem, enhances performance and can help prevent future injury.

Through the insertion of very fine, sterile needles at specific points, acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own natural pain killers (endorphins), natural anti-inflammatory and anti-stress hormones. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture promotes physical and emotional well being.

Acu-point Injection Therapies are extremely effective in treating a range of pain. From an acute injury or sports injury to a chronic pain that has been there for “years”. The injections have been proven effective in treating:

  • Trauma
  • Inflamation
  • Muscular Strains and Sprains
  • Neurological Pains
  • Stiff Joints

Depending on your specific injury we may recommend a combination of modalities, Chiropractic and or Massage in addition to acupuncture. Dramatically cuts healing time by improving blood supply to the affected area.

During our Acupuncture session we also use Auriculotherapy with needles or micro current stimulation to further reduce pain. Auriculotherapy is a therapeutic intervention in which stimulation of the auricle of the external ear is utilized to alleviate health concerns in other parts of the body. It is possible to palpate for tender areas of the ear and readily notice how they correspond to painful areas of the body. Last we may use Homeopathic remedies, Chinese herbal formulas, herbal patches and supplements to strengthen the weakened area, remove toxics and increase blood flow.
