Acupuncture

Trigger point therapy as a western modality entails identifying trigger points in muscle groups and deactivating them. Though it is not acupuncture, patients may think so. Due to the use of needles or injections in muscle groups. It treats muscle aches that may have been present for years. Also it relieves them nevertheless. Acupuncture is a collection of procedures that involves the stimulation of points on the body. We use a variety of techniques, such as penetrating the skin with needles. Then they are manipulated manually or by electrical stimulation. It is one of the key components of traditional Chinese medicine. Also, among the oldest healing practices in the world. The World Health Organization suggests acupuncture as a treatment modality for pain, especially knee osteoarthritis.

Dr. Paradela is a physician who practices medical acupuncture. She uses an integrative approach of both Eastern and Western medicines. Acupuncture allows the body to “reset” after years of emotional and physical insults. Pain is the most common reason for an initial acupuncture visit. She also does trigger point deactivation. This helps with musculoskeletal pain in both acute and old injuries.

Our practice does not take insurance for acupuncture. Trigger point deactivation, as it is a facial treatment, may be covered by insurance. Please call our office for fees.
