Pain Management

Injured muscles cannot function optimally; in a sense, a switch gets flipped and they are “turned off.” The body compensates, putting stress on other muscles, which causes more strain, and pulls the skeleton out of alignment. Acupuncture can be a helpful diagnostic tool to determine which muscles are not functioning optimally, and by careful needle manipulation, we can help to turn these specific muscles back “on.” As recognized by the World Health Organization, regular acupuncture treatment can enhance athletic performance by both accelerating recovery from past injuries and helping to prevent future injuries.

Golden Leaf Acupuncture INC’s clinicians combine western medical knowledge of the myofascial system with Chinese medical knowledge of muscle motor points (areas within the muscle where spinal nerve innervates with and feeds the muscle) to help patients resolve pain and restore functioning to muscles and joints. We work with a patient’s team of health care providers—physical therapists, massage therapists, and orthopedic doctors—to enhance and speed healing.
