  1. Back/Sciatica/ Neck/shoulder pain. Acupuncture is very effective solution when treating most neck and back problems. Neck, shoulder and back muscle tension and stiffness are very common with a work out gone wrong, or from just over sitting at your desk everyday. Talking on the phone or sitting in front of a computer for prolonged periods of time causes a lack of circulation in the tissue and fatigues the muscles involved. Injuries to these areas whether acute or chronic, should be addressed by acupuncture for full recovery.

  2. Disk bulges/Degenerative disk disease. I recommend seeking treatment prior to surgery. Acupuncture is used for pain and to reduce the inflammation.

  1. General soft tissue recovery, either acute or chronic.

  1. Neuropathy/Neuralgia. Nerve pain is annoying. It often moves around. It can be sharp and drilling like, or it can give you a feeling of numbness or "pins and needles."

  1. Knee, elbow, ankle injuries- ACL? Meniscus tears? or strains? Yes" treatable. If you have a knee condition that is bone on bone, acupuncture will not work, but if there is any cartilage there, acupuncture is often effective- reducing swelling, improving mobility, and strengthening the ligaments and tendons.

  1. Hamstring, Achilles, bicep tears.
