Chronic Pain

Are you wondering about treating chronic pain with traditional Oriental medicine? If you answer in the affirmative, then you can come to our site for information on chronic pain treatment with acupuncture and traditional Oriental herbal medicine.

Traditional medicines developed in many cultures. Oriental medicine is a rarely mastered art that is very popular in Europe and the Far East. For more than 2500 years, generations of patients and physicians have depended on traditional Oriental medicine for treatment of chronic pain.

Traditional herbal medicine and acupuncture have proved to be very effective in the area of chronic pain treatments. Although most people are aware of the value of acupuncture for acute pain and traumatic pain, the usefulness of acupuncture for chronic pain is not well known to everyone.

The results of chronic pain treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine are often very satisfying to the patient in terms of pain relief, decrease of stiffness and swelling, and return to normal range of motion and function.

The experience of masters of traditional medicines confirms that the true medicine is the relationship between the physician and the patient. All traditional medical systems acknowledge the time-honored premise that for positive results in medicine, including the treatment of chronic pain, there has to be mutual trust, mutual responsibility, and a common commitment.

Traditional acupuncture for chronic pain treatment is now available in Cleveland.
