Is pain wearing you down? Chronic pain can be debilitating both emotionally and physiologically. A tremendous amount of stress is put on your body in managing chronic pain and that can lead to a weakened immune system, insomnia, sugar imbalances, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalances, weight gain, trouble focusing and less ability to cope with stress in general. What this means to you is not being able to do the activities you love or be as active as you like. Maybe it makes you less patient with your loved ones as you silently suffer. Or you start reaching for over the counter medications with their scary warning labels.
I know exactly what you are going through. In my early twenties I was involved in 2 car accidents and a bike accident that left me in a cycle of terrible pain. I had chronic neck, upper back, facial and hip pain with debilitating headaches and migraines. My health declined in general and I really was going down a path of poor health. Fortunately instead of surgery I found acupuncture, yoga and changed my diet which changed the outcome of my life and well being.
I love to treat people suffering with pain. I have had the opportunity to help hundreds of people with complex pain conditions through my years working with chronic pain specialists in the Bay Area. I have a deep personal understanding of pain conditions and work tirelessly to get you results. I know if you give me a chance I can help you break out of that terrible cycle of pain and regain the health and vitality that is your birth right. Even from the very first treatment you will often feel a dramatic lessening of the pain an increased hopefulness. I am in your corner. Santa Barbara Acupuncture Clinic
