Over time, old injuries can lead to general aches or pains that just hang around. Getting to the root of that old injury sometimes requires something to restimulate the body to recovery. Acupuncture is that something.  

Using very thin needles and inserting them into strategic points of the body helps stimulate your body’s natural healing process. Acupuncture can help with numerous conditions, but its main use is to reduce pain and inflammation and leads to improved function of the affected areas by restoring biochemical balance in the body.
