PAIN MANAGEMENT

You Don’t Need to Live with Pain


What is pain?

Pain is the unpleasant sensory and emotional experience an individual has when they perceive actual or potential tissue damage to their body. It can be Physical Pain or Psychogenic Pain.

Acupuncture is most famous for its treatment of pain. Treatments can significantly reduce chronic and acute pain and decrease one’s need for pain medications and their unwanted side effects. Acupuncture treatments decrease inflammation, block pain receptors, release endorphins, boost the immune system, and regulate neurotransmitters to assist you in becoming pain free.

Pain in Traditional Chinese Medicine theory

According to the Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, pain is caused by a blockage of energy (Qi) flow through the body. Injuries can cause many types of blockage, such as spasms, swelling, inflammation, and bruising. While many conventional treatments simply mask the pain, acupuncture can effectively eliminate the roadblock to speed healing and clearly get to the bottom of one's discomfort. This approach addresses not only the symptoms, but also the underlying cause of the pain.

Warning signal:

Pain is part of the body's defense system, triggering a reflex reaction to retract from the painful stimuli, and helps adjust behavior to increase avoidance of that particular harmful situation in the future.

Testimonial:

I was suffering from severe neck and back pain. Dr. Yang used a combination of treatments to release the locked muscles and ease my stress. I had tried several other alternative treatments that failed to resolve my problem. Thankfully after 3 times treatment I feel much better and am out of pain. Dr. Yang is very patient and tries to get to the route of the problem. I would definitely use him again and would recommend he.

I had been suffering from tendonitis and following a regimen prescribed by a sports orthopedist, but the pain was recurring off and on for a long period, and I decided to try acupuncture. After working with Dr. Yang for 6 sessions, the symptoms were gone and I was able to resume my activities without any restrictions. My experience was totally positive – he was very caring and thorough in his treatment and I would highly recommend Dr. Yang to anyone considering acupuncture.
--------Barbara K.

Dr. Yang (David) has helped me so very much to overcome pain in my back, and in my legs and feet. I have been coming to Dr. Yang for only two weeks (6 appointments) and I am so very much improved. The pain is gone in my back.
-----June C.

“I have suffered from chronic back pain for over ten years. In time my back condition has steadily gotten worse. I was suffering from a degenerative disc disease and sciatic pain. At times the shooting pain down my left leg was so bad, I could do nothing but lie on my side in bed. It’s almost impossible to walk, sit, or bend. At the time of my first visit, Dr. Yang treated me with utmost sensitivity and respect during my first consultation and to start treatment immediately. After my first session of acupuncture, the pain had been eliminated by almost 70%! JUST ONE TREATMENT! I continued to see Dr. Yang several times a week for several weeks until the pain had been virtually eliminated! I now see Dr. Yang periodically or when there is just a minor hint of pain. There’s no reason for anyone to live in pain of any kind when there is this sort of treatment available. A true believer,
--------John T.

Dr. Yang is very knowledgeable and professional. I came to him with shoulder pain a couple of months ago, and I could see improvement after just the first two visits. He asks you about any health issues you may have and creates a regimen that is specific to you. I would highly recommend Dr. Yang!
--------Richard D.

I came to see Dr. Yang after several months of daily headaches the were not responding to traditional medicine. I tried everything- Tylenol, Advil, massage, and was starting to worry there was a bigger issue causing my headaches. I decided to try acupuncture hoping to figure out exactly what was causing my headaches and to see if Dr. Yang could help me. After just 3 treatments my headaches are almost completely gone, my TMJ has become less of an issue and my stress level has significantly improved. I love coming to my sessions and leave feeling relaxed. I'm so thankful I found Dr. Yang.
