How It Works
The principal of the Raleigh Acupuncture nerve pain treatment is simple but powerful. There are channels that run throughout the body. When these channels are blocked, pain occurs. This pain can be achy, stabbing, burning or tingling. Regardless of the type of pain, it will be diminished or resolved when the channel is reopened.
Patients with diabetes are susceptible to neuropathy. So are patients who have undergone chemotherapy. However, neuropathy can develop in anyone. Acupuncture works wonders to reduce the burning and tingling pain associated with neuropathy. Most neuropathy starts in the feet, and progresses up the legs over time. The sooner you start acupuncture, the easier it will be to reverse the effects of neuropathy.
We’ve had many patients come in following chemotherapy treatment for cancer. A common side effect of certain chemotherapy drugs is severe numbness and burning in the legs, feet and toes. Sometimes doctors properly warn their patients about the possibility of getting neuropathy from the chemo. Other times our patients report that they were unaware of this possible side effect until they developed the condition. Acupuncture is one of the only treatments available to deal with this type of neuropathy.
This condition is one of the worst pains a person can have. It affects the face as a shooting, sharp nerve pain. It lasts from a few seconds to a few minutes, and comes frequently throughout the day. Patients describe the pain from trigeminal neuralgia as one of the worst pains imaginable.
Acupuncture resolves trigeminal neuralgia pain. It quiets the nerves in the face, opens channels, and speeds up recovery. The goal in treating trigeminal neuralgia is to get 100% pain resolution, for good. We have over a 90% success rate treating this condition. Western medical options, including expensive laser treatments and nerve ablation, get inferior results, with potentially severe negative side effects. Acupuncture should always be the first line of treatment for trigeminal neuralgia.
Sciatic nerve pain is triggered when a muscle or disc presses up against the sciatic nerve, causing searing pain down the hip, leg, and sometimes to the foot. Acupuncture resolves this pain quite effectively. If a muscle spasm is pressing against the nerve, we treat the muscle, getting the spasm released and returning the muscle to it’s normal state. The piriformis muscle in spasm is a common culprit in sciatica. Acupuncture is the best treatment for piriformis syndrome.
If a bulging disc is pressing on the nerve, acupuncture helps the body reabsorb the bulge. Acupuncture treatment can significantly speed up this process. When the bulging disc is reabsorbed, the nerve is relieved and pain is resolved.
A pinched nerve is similar to the sciatic nerve problem described above. In the case of pinched nerves, the most common area affected is the NECK. A pinched nerve in the neck will cause pain to radiate down the shoulder, into the arm, hand and fingers. The treatment principal is the same as with sciatica – identify what is pressing against the nerve and resolve the compression.
Nerve Pain and You
As you can see, nerve pain can be triggered by many conditions. This article has mentioned just a few. When a patient comes to our office suffering from pain, our first task is to identify and properly diagnose the type of pain they are having and the source of the pain. We then create a treatment plan to alleviate their pain.
Acupuncture is a very effective medicine for resolving pain, regardless of its source. There are no negative side effects from acupuncture. And as opposed to pain medications, acupuncture always treats the root condition. Our goal is always to make the pain go away permanently, not just temporarily.

What our Clients are Saying
For the past 13 years I suffered from peripheral neuropathy in my calf, ankle and foot. I tried numerous medications, therapy with lights, neuromuscular massages and back decompression. I felt like I had stones under the ball of my foot. After the first couple of sessions with Dr. Mark, feelings returned to my calf, ankle and the “stone like feeling” under the ball of my foot began subsiding. Thanks to Dr. Mark, I am able now to walk without pain and discomfort. The extraordinary care and attentiveness I am receiving from Raleigh Acupuncture in treating my neuropathy is remarkable and I recommend them without reserve!
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 a lot 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.
I woke up one morning and started getting these excruciatingly painful shooting electric pains on the left side of my face. My wife took me to the emergency room and they said I had trigeminal neuralgia. They gave me some pain medicine, but a nurse there suggested I try acupuncture. She had this pain once and it was cured by acupuncture. She gave me the name of Raleigh Acupuncture. When I explained the situation they took me in the same day. After just one treatment I started feeling better. They saw me every day for six days, at which point the pain was completely gone. What a life saver. I strongly recommend getting acupuncture for trigeminal neuralgia.
