Clinical studies support that acupuncture is an effective modality in the treatment of almost all kinds of pain conditions, including migraines, neuralgia, neck and back pain, herniated discs, TMJ, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, frozen shoulder, fibromyalgia, dysmenorrhea, osteoporosis, sports and other injuries, surgical pain, and even cancer pain.
Researchers have discovered beneficial immune and endocrine alterations following acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture may actually help prevent pain by acting on the sympathetic nervous system and by stimulating the body to produce endorphins, a biochemical substance naturally produced by the body, to help reduce pain.
At PainCare of San Diego, Dr. Michael Corradino, DAOM practices neuropuncture. This unique acupuncture system was developed by incorporating the research of the neurophysiological mechanisms of acupuncture, research of electrical acupuncture’s effects on specific neural receptors and the holistic traditional TCM model to create treatment protocols that are evidence based and clinically reproducible.
Applying western medical sciences to the classical TCM module does not subtract from the efficacy of the “traditional” acupuncture system, it only amplifies and further explains the unique, powerful neuromodulating effects that can be scientifically understood and harnessed by Neuropuncture’s techniques. From depolarizing affected nerves, targeting specific receptors for the release of neuropeptides, to regulating dysfunctional autonomic reflexes, Neuropuncture has the answer for your condition.
