Why Our Orthopedic Low Back and Hip Pain Treatment Works So Well…

We address the root cause of your problem.

With our process, we find and address the ROOT CAUSE of your problem. This is why so many have found relief with our therapies, even though other therapies didn’t work. Even those with a history of degenerative joint issues have experienced significant relief.

We use an integrative approach your doctor may not be aware of

Your doctor may have told you that you have to live with your back and hip problem and accompanying symptoms or “this is as good as it gets without surgery”. That doesn’t mean there’s no treatment, it just means your doctor has run out of ideas or there aren’t conventional treatments available. We find that people who don’t respond well to conventional treatment often respond very well to our integrative approach.

We help you awaken your body's natural healing system

Despite what you may have been led to believe, your body is not “broken” and it IS possible to have energy, focus, and joy again. That’s because your body never forgets how to heal itself. It just needs the right support. Your body makes its own internal anti-inflammatory substances and medicines, and our therapies help it do just that.

We keep it simple and results are quick

Feeling better and relieving your pain does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear and concise way to attack the problem head on, and patients often see improved strength and mobility within DAYS or WEEKS, not MONTHS.

We focus on how you FEEL - not just numbers

While other providers are looking at images and numbers – WE focus on YOU, your story, and how you feel.

Are you feeling more energy? Are you thinking more clearly? Are you starting to lose those unwanted pounds? Does your skin look healthy and vibrant? THAT is OUR focus. NOT simply numbers, labs, and tests.

Our approach ALWAYS includes stress reduction

Stress is often a key component in pain management. We do not ignore this, we actually teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation which supports your body’s natural healing system.

Here's How Our Unique Combination of THREE Very Potent, Time-Tested 100% Natural Therapies Work To Bring The Body To Heal Itself

(And YOU get to choose which therapies you would like to incorporate.)

Gentle Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body's innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help it heal faster and with more lasting effects.

Herbal Medicine & Nutrition

Herbs and Healthy Nutrition are two of the most powerful methods to strengthen the body. This dual action is something that makes it very well suited to treat, not just pain, but many other conditions including hormone dysfunction, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.

Bodywork and Stress-Reduction

When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.

The Process Is Simple

Free Initial Consultation

At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.

Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan

Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of attack.

Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root of YOUR orthopedic pain issue.

Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution

You’ll return for once-weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results: 

  • Increased energy
  • Better sleep
  • Improved mobility & function
  • Increased strength
  • Healthy metabolism and (if needed) weight loss

You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous and hormonal systems) is rebalancing in a way that results in optimal health and well-being.

Transitional Care As Things Stabilize

Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.

We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.

Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.

Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones

We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.

So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.

Common Questions & Answers About Our Treatment Program For Orthopedic Back and Hip Pain

Does it hurt?

The needles are extremely thin, and they cause no pain because they are razor sharp.

Will I have to keep coming forever?

The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way.

Will I have to spend a lot of time coming in for treatments?

Most of our patients are able to get great results with once-weekly visits. We can discuss this in more detail at your free consultation.

Can natural medicine REALLY help my problem?

Absolutely. Your body is capable of healing ANY problem, especially when it has the nutritional support and specialized natural therapies we offer to help it get back on track. We’ve seen this firsthand in clinic over and over.

Will I have to do a restrictive detox or elimination diet?

Absolutely NOT. Our program is all about setting you up to succeed. We find the 2 or 3 “key leverage points” in your diet and work on those. No impossible to follow meal plans or detoxes here.

How long does it take to see results?

People often feel a positive shift after the very first treatment. Acupuncture is a very powerful way to stimulate endorphin release, which is the most powerful relaxing substance the body makes.

What are my chances of success?

Results vary, of course. That being said, over 75% of our patients report improvement in symptoms after just a few sessions and many are able to reduce their medication use (under supervision by the prescribing physician) as their bodies begin to function at a higher level. However, your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
