Treating pain with TCM

joint or muscle pain,
Neck stiffness, sciatica, carpal tunnel

Joint pain can be relieved with acupuncture. The Tuina massage or the Chinese medicines are also very effective.

neck tension

Neck tension can have many different causes and can have a major impact on well-being and the head.

The TuiNa massage, as well as acupuncture, can be very helpful here and alleviate symptoms. Sometimes herbal therapy is also called for.

Sciatica (or sciatica)

Sciatic pain is pain that occurs in the area supplied by the sciatic nerve. These radiate into the leg, possibly up to the foot. They can result from nerve root compression (sciatica), but can also be caused by muscle tension (as in piriformis syndrome) or other Qi blockages.

The diagnosis must be made appropriately so that treatment addresses the cause of the pain.

Acupuncture can provide good relief from sciatica pain. Chinese medicines are also helpful for severe pain.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Many patients come to my practice to prevent an operation or after an operation. Carpal tunnel syndrome must be viewed holistically, since the causes of the symptoms are often not to be found in the wrist. The treatments bring very good results.

knee pain

Knee pain can have many different causes. Acupuncture, often combined with moxibustion, has proven effective in relieving knee pain.
