Treatment methods against chronic pain with acupuncture and Chinese medicine

Learn which treatment methods Chinese medicine has been using to treat chronic pain successfully for thousands of years.

The treatment of pain is one of the main indications of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Through traditional Chinese medicine it is possible to reduce pain in various areas of the body. Often, TCM treatment is started in addition, if the conventional medical treatment does not show sufficient success until then.

If pain occurs, there is a structural imbalance – or the inner balance is in trouble: muscular disorders or disorders of the bone apparatus are the result.

By asking about known previous illnesses, tongue and pulse diagnosis in connection with the complaints to be treated, the acupuncturist has a complete picture for a diagnosis and the resulting individual therapy.
