Acupuncture for musculo-skeletal pain

Musculoskeletal disorders and related pain are major causes of disability. Chronic Neck pain, chronic low back pain, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), and myofascial pain are common conditions and they can have a major effect on disability and quality of daily life including restorative sleep. As the population ages, the influence of musculoskeletal disorders on society will
also, increase.

Acupuncture is commonly used for pain relief in the above conditions. The ‘Gate control theory’ and the release of endogenous opioids (the body’s own pain defense mechanisms) are some of the explanations suggested for the analgesic effect of acupuncture.

The incidences of side effects and adverse events with acupuncture are lower than those with opioid analgesics and anti-inflammatory medications.

Best Acupuncture Clinic!

Wondering if acupuncture is worth the money? Don’t think twice! I had a serious neck and shoulder problem after several unfortunate incidents. I’ve tried painkillers, physiotherapy, ultrasounds, but nothing really worked. Not to mention I couldn’t sleep and had to stop my activity completely. From the beginning of this year, I have been seen by Dr. Hans Mathew several times. First, he described each step and the benefits of the treatment and made sure I’m comfortable. Being a little nervous around the needles, I found it very reassuring. Next, we’ve started a 10-session treatment that lasted over 2 months. I’ve heard that medical acupuncture really works, but I certainly didn’t expect such a significant effect – my issues started improving almost immediately. Now I see Dr. Hans once a month to still benefit from the electro-acupuncture that works for me as stress relief. I can’t recommend Dr. Hans Mathew enough; he’s highly qualified and fully patient-focused!
