Acupuncture is highly valuable in pain care and is a time tested, safe and effective way to boost your immune system.
As a multidisciplinary clinic we utilize the skills and knowledge of our entire team to guide your care.
In the beginning of treatment it will be necessary to receive more frequent care. During this time we will:
• Work on increasing circulation, range of motion and mobility to your joints and muscles.
• Begin stretches and strengthening in physical therapy
• Provide passive therapies (acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, injections)
• Increase strength training as pain decreases
As your range of motion and pain improve, more exercises will be added so that the changes we are making can become long term.

• Allow your providers to look over your case at specified intervals
