At Opus Total Health we treat all kinds of pain disorders, ranging from low back pain and sciatica to shoulder, elbow and wrist pain, hip, knee, ankle and foot pain, headaches, neck pain and more.
Regular acupuncture treatments help to regulate the fluids in the joints and increase the production of cartilage and lubricating fluids, which improves arthritis and similar disorders.
Acupuncture is effective in relieving pain because it has anesthetic properties. It relieves stiffness and pain by increasing blood circulation and interrupting pain signals in the brain. It improves flexibility and mobility, reduces inflammation, and eliminates muscle spasms by increasing blood supply to tendons, ligaments and muscles.
I was at my wits end with constant pain & not sleeping. I was taking several medications with minimal results... After only 3 treatments I was taking medications much less and I was sleeping better. Although I was skeptical at first acupuncture has really worked for me. I plan to continue my treatments and stop all medications. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone suffering with pain like I was. My quality of life has greatly improved thanks to Dr. O'Brien & Opus Acupuncture.Hugh W. Pain Management
Until I began with acupuncture I lived with pain daily. I tried other forms of therapy for pain and I was considering surgery. I was terrified that the surgery would not help with the pain. Acupuncture changed all that. I've not had surgery and I feel like I have a new lease on life.Christine A. Pain Management
I was in constant pain for over a year. It was a "family" of muscle knots in my back. I tried deep tissue massage, and had a massage pillow that I used several times a day. After my first visit, as I was sitting in the car in the lot, I said to myself: "I feel amazing", hoping it would last. For the next week, I only felt brief twinges of pain but they would go away within minutes. I haven't used my massage pillow since that first visit. I have future visits scheduled and plan to be on "maintenance" thereafter. Linnea was totally in touch with what I needed on my first visit -- I told my friends I found a "miracle worker".Joyce W.
