Acupuncture is a healing art that has been practiced for approximately six thousand years. Acupuncture is very effective at relieving pain, and is used effectively for internal disease and psychological conditions.
In China, doctors discovered that there is a network of energy which travels just below the skin. This network sends messages from the skins surface to internal organs, tissues and glands at precise locations called “acupoints”. There are more than one thousand acupoints on the body which travel in pathways called “meridians”. Energy flows through these meridians and works to influence and harmonize all systems of the body. Due to physical, chemical and mental stresses, this energy can become blocked causing dysfunction in one or more of the bodies systems. By stimulating certain acupoints, energy can be restored helping the bodies natural healing abilities.
Trigger Point Injections
Our patients get excellent results with our Trigger Point Injection Treatments. Trigger Point Therapy takes just a few minutes, and is performed by our Medical Doctor or Physician Assistant.
In our office we use a non-toxic, no side effect, natural, plant based anti-inflammatory medicine called SARAPIN. We also may uses a homeopathic anti-inflammatory medicine called TRAUMEEL. Both of these, are alternatives to corticosteroids and cortisone injections, because they do not damage or weaken cartilage, bones or tendons and they do not adversely affect blood sugar. In rare cases, if absolutely indicated, steroid injections are available.

SUPARTZ JOINT FLUID Therapy helps to relieve joint pain and improve knee function so people can go back to their active lifestyles.
The SUPARTZ Joint Fluid Therapy consists of a hyaluronate injections that are applied directly to your knee joints. Hyaluronate helps to replace lost synovial liquid that normally keeps your knees lubricated. This results in less pain, less degeneration and better mobility.
