No matter where it is in the body or how long pain has been around, living with pain is unbearable. It fatigues the body, makes it hard to concentrate and participate in life, and it weakens all the systems of the body. Ongoing pain is extremely detrimental to your overall health. Acute or short term pain left untreated (or not fully treated) will in time become more complex. Muscular pain is always contagious and will spread through the fascial lines of your body to encompass more and more muscles in your body. What started small could start to grip through the entire side of your body.
The lifestyle effects of ongoing pain become more and more pervasive and persistent as time goes on. What may start with favoring a side can often lead to a limp, alter overall alignment or start to drastically decrease range of motion. It is dangerous to be in pain long term!!
If you have tried everything and received information or seen imaging that states that surgery or months of physical therapy is necessary to cure your ailment I invite you to contemplate acupuncture. Even if you have tried other rounds of acupuncture for your ailment, I encourage you to come in for a free hour consult and discuss how my one-to-one approach may be different from what you have tried in the past. My combination of acupuncture, yoga and deliberate muscular rest to lower pain levels in the body is very unique. I have worked with countless patients who have tried acupuncture, massage, energy work, physical therapy and often surgery with no improvements in the past and have experienced remarkable, immediate results working with me. Pain that is halved in the first few appointments, techniques to keep the pain away in between acupuncture appointments, and complete pain relief are very typical results with this unique technique.
Even if you have been told by numerous specialists that your pain will never go away or your range will never improve–there still may be hope. Don’t be in pain forever, you have other options.
Come in for a free hour long consult to see how my approach may be different than what you have tried in the past. Your best body could be days away from relief.
