Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is hard to live with, hard to talk about, and it affects life in unexpected ways. Everyone experiences pain differently and each ache and pain should be carefully self-assessed. Chronic pain can cause irritability, lost productivity, lower quality of life, and contribute to depression.

Acupuncture is amazing for resolving chronic pain. As an acupuncturist, chronic pain is something that I am passionate about treating. Most of the chronic pain that I treat is muscle pain, headaches, or uterus related.

Each chronic pain is different and at Accessible Acupuncture, everyone receives a custom six to ten week health plan. Most plans include acupuncture, cupping, supplement recommendations, corrective exercises and stretches, and home care for when you need pain relief between appointments.

Types of Pain Acupuncture Treats

Acupuncture reduces pain by reducing inflammation, increasing blood circulation, and releasing endorphins.

Most aches and pains can be resolved with acupuncture. This isn't an exhaustive list, if you are having a pain that isn't listed please give the clinic a call at 587-879-7122 and ask if our Doctor of Acupuncture has treated that type of pain before.

Dr. Melanie was amazing. She had great feedback to give me about all of my conditions, and communicated very well. Very accepting and calming place. I wanted an increase in my energy and I found about a 30% increase as well as some much needed pain relief.
If you’re on the fence, I highly recommend giving Melanie a try.
