Chronic pain is multi-faceted, thus its very nature is the reason that single modal treatments are rarely effective. We personalize combinations of treatments which include Acupuncture, for each patent’s particular pain problem as well as a non-pharmaceutical protocol. We have developed a combination proven to break the pain and sleeplessness cycle.
A total body systems assessment will include the following basic questions:
Where do you feel pain?
When did it begin?
What does it feel like?
How long does it last?
Have you had it before?
Is it constant or intermittent?
