You’ve tried ice. Heat. Medication. Physical Therapy. Exercises. But none of these things have relieved your muscle or joint pain.

It’s time to consider medical acupuncture.

Though there has been a lot of debate over whether acupuncture can relieve chronic pain, international research of 18,000 participants showed 50% experienced pain relief.. Clearly, acupuncture can make a difference. At the Advanced Integrative Rehabilitation and Pain Center, we have the privilege of helping people with pain management in Washington D.C., and we are fully committed to bringing you the relief you need.

How Does it Work?

A trusted, certified acupuncturist will insert hair-thin needles into certain points on your body. It is virtually painless, and eases chronic pain by impacting hormone levels, neurotransmitters, and the immune system.

It is important to note that acupuncture is a good solution for old pain. If you are experiencing new pain, you should get a clear diagnosis in order to rule out treatments that may be needed immediately. Once serious medical attention has been ruled out, acupuncture can be considered.

How Often and What Does it Cost?

At first, plan on weekly treatments until you begin to see a positive change. After that, you can lengthen the time between treatments. They usually cost from $65 to $125 per treatment, and most insurance companies do not cover it. Do not let this deter you. The long-term benefits of acupuncture are worth the money. Compare that to buying pain medication for years. Acupuncture will give you more results for your money any time.
