No one knows how much we actually use our bodies day to day more than someone who is experiencing pain. The causes of pain syndromes are varied from acute injury to insidious bone spurs to chronic inflammation. Modern treatment focuses on treating the pain without treating the reason for the pain - NSAIDs and cortisone injections are the standard of care when many times pain is caused by a systemic imbalance, therefore the effects of treatment are short-lived. Chinese & East-Asian Medicine's approach to body pain focuses on treating the pain while simultaneously treating the true cause of the pain, making it an effective healthcare modality to get to long-lasting results.
As Chinese & East-Asian medicine practitioners with a strong track record in pain management, we work with you to really understand who you are, what your joint pain is telling you, and how to calm the pain while simultaneously working on the root cause of it. Together we will work to identify the root of your joint pain and build your individual strategy toward remission. It will take more time than you would prefer, collaboration between you, us, and your other practitioners, rigorous experimentation to find what works, and an immense amount of patience, but by starting on this path you will see results that are sustainable and will compound over time. If you're curious to see if we're a good fit to help you reach your health goals, let's connect below.
