Pain Management Q&A

What is pain management?

Pain management is an area of medicine that focuses on relieving acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) pain. While many pain management treatments rely on potentially addictive medications to relieve discomfort, Jeanine and her team at North Shore Acupuncture and Wellness offer many alternative treatments to alleviate pain.


After an initial consultation, Jeanine and her team can develop an individualized pain management plan that improves your quality of life.

Who should consider pain management?

If you experience lasting pain that doesn’t respond to at-home treatments, pain management techniques may help deliver the relief you need. Consider pain management if you experience:


  • Chronic or acute pain lasting more than three months
  • Pain interfering with your daily activities
  • Pain that lasts after trying medication
  • A chronic condition that continues causing pain despite previous treatment


Pain management techniques at North Shore Acupuncture and Wellness can help you control pain effectively and improve your quality of life.

Are there alternatives to medication in pain management?

North Shore Acupuncture and Wellness offers many alternative pain management techniques, such as:


Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body (acupoints) to stimulate natural healing, relieve pain, and restore balance. The team uses Seirin® ultra-fine, disposable needles to ensure the highest level of sterility and comfort.


Electroacupuncture is a type of acupuncture that involves passing a small electric current through pairs of acupuncture needles. The treatment can enhance the benefits of traditional acupuncture to deliver relief from pain and other uncomfortable symptoms.


Cupping therapy is an alternative technique in which Jeanine and her team place specialized cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. This treatment may help relieve pain, reduce inflammation, promote blood flow, and enhance relaxation.


Acu-TENS is a treatment similar to acupuncture that uses electrical pulses via skin surface electrodes to stimulate acupuncture points in place of needles.

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is a hands-on technique that aligns your spine, joints, muscles, and tissues to restore function to your body.

Gua sha

Gua sha is a traditional East Asian medicine technique that involves instrument-assisted press-stroking to deliver immediate relief for various symptoms and internal organ disorders.
