The National Institute of Health (NIH) reports that when surveyed, more than one-quarter of U.S. adults had recently experienced some sort of pain lasting more than a day.  The National Health Interview Survey, which included a comprehensive survey of Complimentary and Alternative Medicine used by 3.1 million Americans in the past year, found musculoskeletal complaints accounting for 7 of the top 10 conditions for which people received acupuncture.  Back pain was the most common, followed by joint pain, neck pain, severe headache/migraine, and recurring pain.

 Our practitioners at Umé have many years of experience treating chronic and acute pain due to a wide variety of causes.
