Conditions treated include acute pain as a result of injury or illness, back problems, arthritis, cancer, post-surgical pain, spinal stenosis, shingles, and muscular conditions. Many patients wish to supplement their treatment with complementary medicine services, such as acupuncture, that can be provided right at the Institute.
