Study Shows Acupuncture More Effective Than Drugs For Back Pain

Here's Your Healthy Tip of the Day:  I cannot tell you how many patients come into my office because they were referred by a friend or colleague whose back pain was resolved/managed quicker and more effective than cortisone shots.  Cortisone shots will only 'mask' the pain you have; leading you to believe you can golf, play tennis and do all your activities as you would like to....until the shot wears off and you find yourself in worse condition than pre-injection stage.  Acupuncture addresses not only the root cause of your pain, but treats it effectively, expediently and without drugs.  Followup care ensures pain management and will get you back to your favorite activity long term.  New research by Korean doctors of Oriental Medicine of Jaseng Hospital of Korean Medicine and researchers at the Institute for Oriental Medicine deduced that pain was significantly reduced more among patients who received acupuncture, as opposed to those receiving allopathic pain shots.
Call or email the office today and put yourself out of your misery for good!
