Tired of being in pain? Tired of taking ibuprofen products? Dr. Duarte provides an extremely effective treatment to reduce inflammation and pain which also stimulates the body’s natural healing process. This treatment is called Acupoint Injection Therapy. It combines simultaneously the therapeutic effects of acupuncture with herbal medicine.
Many patients have muscle spasms, low back pain, sciatica, disc problems, muscle tension discomfort, joint strains/sprains, plantar fasciitis, nerve tingling in extremities, and other acute or chronic symptoms due to car accidents, sports injuries, falls, repetitive motion overuse, and fibromyalgia. Acupoint Injections can provide relief. By utilizing injections of homeopathic products (anti-inflammatories) into the muscles (trigger point injections) or under the skin (therapeutic subcutaneous injections) there is a rapid reversal of pain (usually within 3 sessions).
Acupoint Injection Therapy is especially useful when massage, chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, and/or prescription drugs have not provided satisfactory results. People are often recommended to have cortisone shots, but most often can avoid them when receiving this treatment. Dr Duarte utilizes a protocol where the injections do not require deep insertion. Patients have been heard to say, “I can’t believe I am looking forward to more injections!”
