Orthopedic Acupuncture in Detroit and Southeast Michigan
The sports medicine and orthopedic specialists at DMC Medical Group provide orthopedic acupuncture in Detroit and southeast Michigan to help treat arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions such as soft tissue wounds, muscle spasms, sprains, and strains. A form of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is often used today to complement other types of orthopedic treatments for occupational and work injuries, auto accident injuries, and sports injuries.
An acupuncture treatment involves inserting fine needles into the body, with their location depending on the condition that is being treated. Acupuncture can stimulate a variety of biological systems in the muscles, immune system, nervous system, and endocrine system, and triggers the release of the body’s own pain-killing endorphins. This treatment can help to reduce pain from an injury more rapidly, reduce muscle spasms, and increase joint range of motion, enabling a patient to begin physical therapy or strengthening sooner.
Some of the conditions that acupuncture may be used to treat include:
Ankle pain and sprains
Bulging or herniated discs
Elbow pain, including golfer’s elbow and tennis elbow
Headaches, including migraines
Hip and groin pain
Jaw and neck pain
Joint strains and sprains
Leg and knee pain
