Pain Q & A

What is causing my pain?

Pain is a symptom of something else going on in your body. Your body uses pain to indicate to you that something is wrong. So if you’re experiencing unexplained pain, it’s important to talk with a professional like Dr. Vishnu. Getting to the root cause of your pain allows him to treat the underlying reason for it, delivering true healing that doesn’t just stop your pain but also rebalances your body. 

Some of the most common causes of pain include:

  • Muscular strain
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Neuropathy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Fibromyalgia

To start with your pain diagnosis, Dr. Vishnu first talks with you to understand if the pain is acute (pain that came on suddenly and that you’ve only experienced for a short time) or chronic (long-lasting pain). Then, he works with you, asking you questions and using screenings like Hara diagnosis constitutional assessments, electrodermal screenings, and meridian stress assessments to help him hone in on the cause of your pain.

What are my pain treatment options?

There are a variety of pain treatment options available today. The problem is that many medical providers focus on masking your pain rather than finding and treating what’s causing it. Instead of simply covering over your pain, Dr. Vishnu works to find and address the root cause so you get full healing with long-lasting pain relief. 

Rather than employing a single treatment, Dr. Vishnu takes an integrative approach. Some of the treatments he may use as part of your holistic care include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Homeopathic remedies
  • Acupoint injection therapy
  • Changes to your diet

Dr. Vishnu blends ancient healing techniques like acupuncture and Chinese herbs with modern technology to give you the best pain treatment possible. 

Is pain treatment safe?

The pain treatment offered at American Acupuncture Academy is nontoxic and nonaddictive. While the opioid crisis has underscored the danger of some types of pain management, American Acupuncture Academy only offers safe treatments. Dr. Vishnu prioritizes using natural healing techniques that work with your body, helping you find healing and balance without the use of any potentially dangerous prescriptions.

Pain doesn’t have to be a pervasive part of your life. Get started with your integrative pain treatment by calling American Acupuncture Academy or scheduling an appointment online today.
