We are committed to helping our patients live pain free. We use orthopedic tests combined with acupuncture, massage and soft tissue release techniques to treat acute and chronic pain. We also examine other contributing factors to pain such as emotions, diet and lifestyle.


Pain Evaluation

Each new patient is given a conventional physical exam including standard orthopedic and neurological tests when needed. In the exam the doctor feels for the texture, tightness and movement of joints and soft tissue. We observe posture and gait to assess biomechanical stress.

Success Stories

“One thing I have noticed is that while you have been treating my shoulder problem my energy has improved. It is particularly noticeable at the gym where I am able to work out longer with less pain.”



“I was referred for chronic lumbar pain following a disc replacement surgery. I can honestly say that I received more help with acupuncture and myofascial release than physical therapy.  I was in too much pain for physical therapy. In fact, I was amazed the first time, the needles weren’t even put in the area that hurt and I got tremendous pain relief.”
