Acupuncture can help ease pain for a broad range of issues, from acute issues such as sports injuries to more chronic conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia. Acupuncture can help acute injuries heal faster by curbing inflammation in the body, thus allowing it to repair what’s necessary. With more chronic conditions, acupuncture can both reduce pain as well as improve the range of motion of the affected area. In both cases, acupuncture (and other modalities that we use at Metapoint such as cupping, gua sha, moxa, etc.) have substantially lower side effects than prescription pain medicine or certain medical procedures.
