We specialize in treating Pain, Orthopedic Conditions and Sports Injuries. When treating pain, we focus on reducing the intensity and frequency of pain as soon as possible, in order to restore daily activities. This pain can be coming from overuse injuries, muscles, nerves, tendons, undiagnosed pain with no apparent reason, etc. We have seen acupuncture help conditions that were otherwise untreatable.
Melani Leonard-Cooper has completed a specialized Pain/Orthopedic Medicine/Sports Medicine training program that has allowed her to gain extra insight into these conditions. In the sports medicine field she has treated professional athletes, collegiate athletes, high school athletes, professional dance teams and weekend warriors. She combines Eastern Medicine and Western Medicine in order to help active people recover from injuries, perform better in their respective sport, reduce nerve and muscle pain, increase range of motion in affected joints, reduce localized swelling, help to accelerate healing post-surgery and to help enhance athletic performance.
Acupuncture helps Orthopedic Conditions by focusing on structural and myofascial techniques for the treatment of soft tissue injuries, sprains/strains, pain, postural imbalances, degenerative conditions etc. The aim of treatment is to create a harmonious balance within the musculoskeletal and meridian systems that generates healing and promotes overall health and well-being.
