Relieve Pain with Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine based on the theory that energy called Chi (chee) flows through and around the body along pathways called meridians. When those pathways are blocked and Chi is unbalanced, illness occurs. Acupuncture treatment involves inserting long, thin needles into acupuncture points to release blockages and restore balance, thus eliminating illness.

But what does that mean for you? When you’ve tried other methods of treatment or medicines for chronic pain or illness that haven’t helped, acupuncture can provide relief. You can also add acupuncture to a current treatment plan you have.

How can acupuncture help you?
Acupuncture can be an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, illnesses, and chronic pain, including:

  • Headaches (migraines)
  • Fibromyalgia     
  • Myofascial pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Asthma
  • Dental pain
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Nausea and discomfort related to chemotherapy
  • Stroke rehabilitation

What can you expect?
Dr. Poggi will first meet with you to perform a comprehensive examination and evaluation, which will include getting a complete history of your condition and description of your symptoms and treatments you’ve tried. You will then receive an acupuncture treatment that will last from 45 minutes to one hour. You and the doctor will determine your follow-up course of treatment, and you can schedule your next appointment.
