A Proven Method for Fast Pain Relief

Acupuncture is a treatment that comes to us from traditional Chinese medicine, in which small needles are gently placed into the skin in order to stimulate healing and help someone stop feeling pain. Medical acupuncture from our Oviedo, FL doctor of osteopathic medicine is different, in that it combines this old approach with modern anatomical knowledge. It has been used by doctors all over the world to help patients recover from chronic pain and acute injuries, and now, you can experience its benefits right here in Oviedo thanks to Dr. Derek Murphy.

What is Medical Acupuncture?

On the surface, Medical Acupuncture is very similar to the traditional method. Needles are strategically placed into the skin all over the body to relieve pain and focus someone’s healing ability. In addition to combining this practice with a more contemporary understanding of the body, Dr. Murphy is also able to use acupuncture as part of an overall treatment plan, not just a standalone therapy, to provide general wellness as well as a solution to a specific problem.

Medical Acupuncture Benefits

One of the biggest benefits of Medical Acupuncture is that it offers a drug-free way to experience immediate pain relief for almost any area of the body. It may be all a patient needs, or it could help them enjoy a comfortable experience while a more robust treatment is taking effect. After receiving Medical Acupuncture, most patients report feeling like themselves again, and because there are no side effects (other than relaxation), they can quickly resume their normal activities after a session.

Why Should I Visit an Osteopathic Physician?

People who offer traditional acupuncture typically have no formal medical training, but as a certified Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Murphy has not only completed medical school, but gone through years of medical training and residency where he’s treated many different patients experiencing a wide array of ailments. This experience gives him a deep understanding of the human body and how to address numerous musculoskeletal conditions, plus he’s able to combine acupuncture with other treatments to deliver a better, longer-lasting result.
