How It Works
Hamstring pain is most often triggered from blockage in the channels that run down the leg. There are three channels that run down the back of the leg. Qi (energy) flows through these channels just like blood flows through the vessels. When normal Qi flow is blocked, pain, tightness and cramping result.
Injury and overuse are the primary reasons Qi gets blocked. When you get a leg cramp it’s due to Qi stuck in the channel. When you feel that dull, achy throb in a muscle, it’s Qi stagnation. Using acupuncture points along blocked channels gets Qi moving again, removes blockage and relieving pain.
Some people tend to have tight muscles, which increases the chance of cramping. Hamstring are notorious for being tight all the time. Once again, acupuncture can help. “Muscle loosening” acupuncture points train the body to ease muscles, addressing the tightness issue at it’s root.
Acupuncture also powerfully increases blood circulation to the body. Pain and cramping both improve much faster when blood circulation is improved. These acupuncture points not only boost circulation, they train the body to move the blood “on it’s own”. They say to the body, “Hey, you need to give this tight muscle more blood after he runs”. And the body listens! This results in long lasting relief.
What About The Rest Of My Legs?
Very often patients who come for hamstring pain also struggle with calf cramps, Achilles tendinitis or plantar fasciitis. That makes sense. Problems are often not isolated, but part of a bigger systemic imbalance. In these cases we treat all of the issues together.

What our Clients are Saying
I came to Raleigh Acupuncture for severe plantar fasciitis and hamstring pain. They helped me with both of them. My pain was a 10 out of 10 beforehand, and now I’m barely a 1 out of 10. The process is amazing. I don’t know how it works but I KNOW it works!
I’m a semi-professional weight lifter. I never had a problem until my hip went out doing squats. The pain was tremendous, like a sharp nerve pain down the back of my leg into the calf. It had sidelined me for two months while I tried unsuccessfully to work out the pain. Then a buddy suggested acupuncture. He had a similar hip pain and got relief at Raleigh Acupuncture. I went there and got treated. They told me to stop stretching until the injury was healed. I followed their instructions and got half a dozen treatments. The pain started easing after the first few treatments. I continued for another 6 treatments and was totally cured. I was able to get back to lifting with no residual effects of the injury. I’ve recommended this practice to a number of friends since that time and they all have had good experiences.
I have neuropathy that is a burning, tingling pain down my legs and into my feet. The doctor said there was nothing I could do besides pain medicine, since I am diabetic. The meds didn’t help much and made me feel groggy all the time. I tried acupuncture, after seeing a segment on Dr. Oz. I found Raleigh Acupuncture online and liked their website. They had alot of useful information. The treatments were interesting. They used electric acupuncture on my legs and feet that felt like a tingling massage. They said it would take a few treatments to start kicking in, and they were right. The burning pain slowly started to recede, and the tingling went away. I was truly amazed to feel such a difference in my legs and feet. I know so many people with neuropathy, and they are afraid to try acupuncture. I think they are crazy not to try it. What a difference not to be in constant pain anymore. I don’t need medication for my legs.
My doctor told me I had sciatica, but the only place I felt pain was on the side of my calf. It was terrible nerve pain that screamed all day and all night. I couldn’t exercise and it affected my sleep. I had to take pain killers every night just to fall asleep. I tried massage and physical therapy, but it didn’t help. So I tried acupuncture. They agreed with my doctor that it was sciatica. They treated my hip as well as my leg. And sure enough, the pain started easing after just one treatment. After 5 treatments it was gone. I don’t understand how treating the hip helped my leg pain, but it did. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture!
Ever since my hip replacement I had terrible hip pain that radiated down my leg into my foot. They were talking about redoing the hip, which I didn’t want to do, so I tried acupuncture. The doctors at Raleigh Acupuncture were wonderful. They gave me lots of time and told me what they were doing. They got rid of 90% of my pain. I can live with that!
I’ve been suffering from sciatic pain for years, since I was in a car accident. I tried everything and nothing helped. I couldn’t walk right and had a bad limp. My son made me go to Raleigh Acupuncture (I am afraid of needles!). They told me they would treat me 4 times to see how I responded. Well, I responded great. I had to get 6 treatments to get rid of the pain. Now I walk fine (no limp) and feel all better. Great place!
