Signal management

Pain Management at the Crane Clinic

Acupuncture, which originated in China, has proven to be a very effective therapy for pain relief and is now used in many progressive hospitals in the US, UK, Israel and Australia. Pain clinics also include acupuncture in their medical treatment protocol.

Acupuncture needles used along the area of ​​pain induce an electrical response and promote the flow of energy to the area of ​​pain, moving stagnant blood and promoting the flow of oxygen to the tissues to relieve pain. It also downregulates pain signals going to the brain.

Crane Clinic practitioners identify areas of pain by connecting to impulses as they scan the body. Identifying the area of ​​pain validates the patient’s concern because X-rays and MRIs often show no abnormalities. This can be a huge relief for people as they feel validated by the pain they are feeling.

Unique and progressive therapies as well as acupuncture are used to achieve pain relief, such as laser therapy, PEMF and Ondamed therapy. Crane Clinic also uses electro-acupuncture, where electrodes are attached to needles and stimulated with an electric current, which relieves pain. Patients report immense benefits from the traditional art of cupping in relieving muscle pain and spasms, chronic back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, and fibromyalgia.

Both acupuncture and laser therapy address the trauma and shock associated with an injury or event by modulating the body’s stress response and memories of the accident. Addressing any traumatic memories associated with an injury helps reduce the pain response.

Science now points to the relationship between inflammation, gut health, and painful inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, migraine, fibromyalgia, and neuromuscular pain. The clinic’s nutritionist addresses this issue through a thorough investigative consultation and an individual plan to reduce inflammation.
