Relief From Pain & Injuries

Acupuncture for Pain Relief, Injuries & Sports Medicine

At Soaring Crane Acupuncture we help people of all ages and activity levels struggling with pain or injuries to heal and recover faster with less reliance on pain killers. We specialize in an integrative orthopedic/sports medicine acupuncture approach we call The Best of East & West. You can achieve relief from pain and reduced recovery time from injuries, surgeries and degenerative conditions.

Our treatment integrates traditional acupuncture points with trigger and myotomal motor point release. Precise needling of trigger points found in muscles releases the muscles, allowing them to relax and lengthen, which translates to better-functioning joints and less pain. This combination promotes accelerated healing of muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerve damage. It improves circulation, promotes scar reduction and restores proper muscle tone and range of motion. You can achieve outstanding results in the relief of pain, weakness, numbness/tingling and the side effects of concussion.

Benefits of Acupuncture for Pain & Injury

  • Releases naturally occurring pain-killing opioid peptides & endorphins
  • Promotes healing by increasing local blood circulation & forming new blood vessels
  • Decreases inflammation by modulating the immune system
  • Relieves headaches, dizziness, & numbness/tingling in the extremities
  • Increases flexibility, range of motion and reduces joint pain
  • Promotes a feeling of well-being & reduces anxiety

How Acupuncture Promotes Healing & Reduces Inflammation

Acupuncture is more than just pain control. When acupuncture needles are inserted under the skin or into muscles they stimulate the release of several different neuropeptides that cause vasodilation which increases local blood circulation, and promotes the formation of new blood vessels. It also simulates the release of fibroblast cells that trigger a healing response in local tissues. This is how acupuncture triggers and promotes the repair of soft tissue injuries. Precise needling of trigger points found in muscles releases the muscles, allowing them to relax and lengthen, which translates to better-functioning joints and less pain.

The Science of How Acupuncture Relieves Pain

Over the years western medical science has shown that acupuncture stimulates a variety of biological responses within the muscles, immune, endocrine, and neurological systems. When acupuncture points are stimulated they release neuromodulators (opioid peptides) and neurotransmitters (endorphins) in your brain and spinal column. These peptides have a strong pain-killing effect in your body—everywhere.
