Pain relief is one of our specialties at South Jersey Sports Acupuncture.
Acupuncture works well for pain management by reducing inflammation, calming the nervous system, normalizing pain signals to the brain, and stimulating the body's release of endogenous pain killers.
Our acupuncture and manual therapies provide lasting relief from both acute and chronic pain.
With acute injuries, these therapies can help reduce swelling and inflammation and promote faster healing. Common painful areas treated:
Wrist and Hand
Ankle and Foot
In cases of chronic pain caused by degeneration or autoimmune disorders, acupuncture and massage help to break the inflammatory cycle, calm the overactive immune system, and ease the nervous system. Acupuncture can alleviate and manage pain and stiffness from:
osteoarthritis of the knees, hips, neck (cervical spine), middle back (thoracic spine), lower back (lumbar spine), and hands.
rheumatoid arthritis in the hands, wrists, feet, and ankles
migraine headaches and associated symptoms
tension in the face, jaw, neck, and shoulders
bruxism (teeth grinding)
