Acupuncture

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine. In the West, it's often an alternative treatment for chronic pain. Acupuncture uses thin needles to stimulate trigger points on your body. These needles can relieve pain and boost blood flow to injured areas of the body.

The offices of Steven Rosenblatt, MD, Family Practice offer customized acupuncture sessions as part of your personalized treatment strategy. Dr. Rosenblatt uses acupuncture to speed up the healing process and provide drug-free pain relief.

How can acupuncture improve my well-being?

If other treatments haven't relieved your pain, acupuncture may be the solution. Acupuncture can reduce:

  • Joint pain (e.g., knee, hip)
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Numbness
  • Headaches

Many patients also report improved energy levels after an acupuncture session. Acupuncture relieves tension and stress to improve your mental clarity. If you struggle with chronic pain, acupuncture can also relieve your discomfort and boost your range of motion.

Best of all, acupuncture is extremely safe. Acupuncture carries little to no risk of side effects. Most patients can safely receive acupuncture, including children. Surgery and prescription drugs can cause painful side effects, but acupuncture offers safe and gentle pain relief.
