Acupuncture is a method by which single use, sterilized needles are inserted into specific points throughout the body. This stimulates the body to produce its own pain relievers (endorphins) to block the pain pathways to the brain resulting in pain relief, general relaxation of the involved muscle groups, and tissue healing. Acupuncture has been proven to be effective in the treatment of rotator cuff injuries, neck pain, low back pain, headaches, frozen shoulder, muscle spasms, arthritis and many other acute and chronic pain syndromes.
