Health Conditions | Pain

According to the Pain Care Coalition, pain is the most common reason that Americans seek medical care. For back pain alone, it is estimated that 25 million doctor visits take place in the U.S. each year. While a cure for pain can prove elusive, people are increasingly finding relief by turning to alternative treatments. In recent studies, acupuncture has been shown to be effective in treating pain. Other naturopathic medical treatments, such as physical manipulations, herbs and supplements have also provided relief for many.

Bastyr Center offers integrated pain treatment, combining acupuncture and naturopathic medicine to alleviate pain. Make an integrated pain managment appointment.
