Acupuncture and elbow pain

  • Acupuncture treats pain by improving circulation, reducing inflammation and relaxing spasmed muscles.
  • Herbal medicine can be used too. Herbal medicine works similarly to acupuncture, but does so from the inside out.
  • I often prescribe an external herbal soak for the hands, feet, and the elbow
  • Tui na massage, cupping and gua sha is helpful to support acupuncture treatments.
