One of the biggest reasons we are so adamant about offering sliding scale services, is to create greater access to chronic and acute pain relief. We believe so strongly in the power of this medicine and we know that it is key to guiding people out of unnecessary suffering. With little to no side effects, acupuncture is proven over and over again to be safe, effective and clinically relevant for pain management. A 2016 study found that 93% of 89,000 people reported successful treatment for musculoskeletal pain, Yet only 23% of patients with chronic pain found opiates effective, according to a 2006 survey by the American Pain Foundation and a recent review found that opioids at guideline recommended doses were not effective for low back pain.
With that said, come check out Brooke at our sliding scale clinic today from 3-8 at our @shopharborside location!!
