Chronic pain can make life unbearable. It lasts longer than normal pain, has greater intensity, and can migrate beyond the original pain site. Chronic pain can make even the most simple day to day tasks all but impossible and lead to isolation, irritability, and even depression. And according to some surveys, almost 30% of Americans suffer from some sort of chronic pain.
Acupuncture can help. According to many studies, acupuncture is an effective treatment for chronic pain, particularly back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, chronic headache, and shoulder pain. Similarly, the Harvard Health Blog states that: Acupuncture is Worth a Try for Chornic Pain. Most importantly, acupuncture can offer clear, time tested benefits without any of the complications or drastic side effects of other treatments such as pain medication.
Acupuncture can help your body heal itself in order to bring chronic pain relief and allow you to live your life to the fullest extent. Dr. Mansouri is a licensed, board certified acupuncturist with over 20 years of experience helping patients with chronic pain in the Irvine and Orange County area.
