Pain Management

Dr. John Chen Acupuncture specializes in pain management that treating back / neck, frozen shoulder, stress, injury, chronic pain, sciatica, arthritis, nerve troubles and etc.

Acupuncture provides excellent treatment for acute or chronic pain. Acupuncture releases endorphins (our body’s own pain-killers) from the anterior pituitary gland and stimulates immune response. Acupuncture and herbs reduce inflammation and increase circulation.

Much research has demonstrated that patients with acute pain respond extremely well to acupuncture treatment (approximately 6-10 treatments) and that chronic conditions require more treatment with significant improvement in symptoms. Patients who had taken analgesics before acupuncture therapy were able to either discontinue them completely, or reduce their doses dramatically.

If you have experienced trauma and pain from an accident, please note that research also supports the use of acupuncture for after-treatment of accident patients. Acupuncture presents a valuable therapeutic option – resulting in reduced pain, decreased edema, increased range of motion and reduction of long standing complaints following accidents.
