Sports Medicine & Pain Acupuncture
Acupuncture is very well known for treating pain and there is a lot of evidence to support this. The National Institutes of Health’s article on acupuncture claims that acupuncture is helpful for many types of pain including: back pain, knee pain and headaches. Even Harvard University says that, “Acupuncture is worth a try for chronic pain“.
The research is in and acupuncture is well proven to be effective for treating all kinds of pain. So, if you have never tried acupuncture, now is the time!
All of the practitioners at Acupuncture Northwest & Associates treat pain, both chronic and acute. In addition, Julie Booker trained with one of the most famous acupuncture pain specialists in the country, Matthew Callison. Matthew speaks internationally on sports medicine and has one of the most highly regarded training facilities for post-graduate training in treating pain and sports medicine.
Our Seattle massage therapist also does therapeutic massage and is well equipped to treat pain as well.
"The Shoulder Whisperer" – When I had pain due to my shoulder injury, Julie Booker would treat me right after PT and my range of motion would increase by 20-30% immediately and my pain would be lessened. My physical therapist was so amazed and told me to always get acupuncture right after I had PT with her. Without acupuncture, it would have taken my shoulder much longer to heal and rid myself of the pain.
