Acute and Chronic Pain & Sports Injuries

Acupuncture - Chronic Pain and Sports Injuries

Here is a partial list of problems that can be treated with acupuncture:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Knee pain
  • Headaches
  • Joint or arthritis pain

Acupuncture is effective, comfortable and non-invasive treatment for many different kinds of pain.

“When there is pain, there is no free flow. When there is free flow there is no pain.” This is an axiom which describes the mechanism of pain as viewed in Chinese medicine and acupuncture. By releasing the blockages through acupuncture, the free flow of energy (Qi) is restored, blood flow is increased, muscles are relaxed and pain reduced or eliminated.

In addition, studies have shown that acupuncture increases your body’s production of endorphins, which are your system’s natural pain killers.

As a Certified Sports Medicine Acupuncture Specialist (C.SMA), Ms. Levitz integrates advanced acupuncture techniques, tuina, western orthopedic tests, evaluations and myofascial release bodywork skills; you will heal faster, get back to your activity sooner and prevent re-injury.

I was getting a really awful pain in my upper arm when I moved it in a certain way. It was so bad that I could hardly reach around to put on a coat without cringing. Cindy looked at it and immediately decided it was a muscle problem. After just one treatment, my mobility was greatly improved and if I did have pain, it was down to a small ache. The benefits were immediate.

Thank you so much for your help. It has made a tremendous difference.
