Many of my patients tell me that they get regular chiropractic adjustments in an effort to relieve their pain. But some tell me that the pain-relieving effects from chiropractic treatment only lasts for a short time. Why is that?
Chiropractic adjustments can certainly be beneficial, but if a muscle is in spasm, it quickly pulls the vertebrae and joints right back out of place. If the organs are out of balance, they will also pull the skeletal structure out of alignment again. So, if chiropractic treatment sometimes doesn’t get to the root cause of your pain, acupuncture and Chinese herbs may treat your body on a deeper level.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, there are four levels of Qi (vital life energy), and acupuncture and Chinese herbs can tap into ALL FOUR of these levels, allowing for a comprehensive healing experience that goes right to the root cause of the imbalance.
Steven Sonmore, Licensed Acupuncturist, offers these holistic therapies that repeatedly give his patients results far beyond their expectations for pain management and stress relief. Using the power of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, he can help you achieve more than you have believed is possible.
Here’s just one example of the depth of acupuncture’s healing potential: One of Steven’s regular patients came in recently because he is being treated by western doctors for anxiety. Since acupuncture can also treat emotional issues, his anxiety started to diminish after only FOUR acupuncture treatments. During one of those visits, he told Steven that he had some intense lower back pain as well, even though he had just had a chiropractic adjustment the day before. Now, we’re not trying to say anything bad about chiropractic treatments, but at times, it may not be sufficient to alleviate your pain.
So, Steven Sonmore asked his patient: “How would you like to get rid of your pain in less than five minutes?” The man laughed in disbelief and said, “Okay!”After Steven inserted several hair-thin needles in his arms and legs, the patient’s lower back pain was reduced by 70%! Weeks later, his pain hasn’t returned!
Do You Suffer from Chronic Pain?
If you experience chronic pain, you may have tried just about everything from massage to pain medications to chiropractic.

Working with a therapist who has extensive knowledge of alternative medicine treatment options for lasting pain relief, improved range of motion, and stress reduction could be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.

Don’t Delay Like So Many Others
Unfortunately, our Minneapolis acupuncture clinic is often the last resort for some people. This is sometimes due to the fear of needles because they don’t realize that the needles are about as thin as a human hair and are barely felt. As a result of this fear or lack of understanding of the effectiveness of acupuncture, people who have chronic pain often feel trapped in hopelessness for years, despite the fact that there is a considerable amount of research that points to how effective acupuncture can be.
One of the most compelling studies regarding acupuncture for the treatment of pain was conducted at Sheffield University in England and published in 2006. 241 patients participated, and even a short course of acupuncture had long-term effects on the pain of many of the patients. The majority had just ten treatments over a three-month period, and they reported experiencing less pain even two years after they had discontinued treatments. Many of them reported that they no longer needed pain medications.
A study conducted in Beijing, China in 1994 reported that 98.3% of the 56 patients in the study experienced substantial relief from chronic lower back pain.
Here’s another recent example: A client of Steven’s came to the office after open heart surgery. He explained that there was nothing that could be done for him because he had tried everything, but he decided to give acupuncture therapy a try anyway. As a result of the treatment, areas of pain and inflammation were alleviated, not only from the surgery itself, but from overworked joints that had given him pain and discomfort for years. He was shocked to discover that the therapies helped him to move past the pain and into a new, healthier life with increased flexibility.
