Acupuncture Treatment at Back In Action

Acupuncture treatment at Back in Action focuses on keeping you active and healthy at any age. As a sports physician and a diplomate in medical acupuncture, Dr. Berv is able to quickly, effectively and thoroughly assess your needs and find the appropriate course of action -- without the need for a referral from your primary care physician. Since Dr. Berv is skilled in orthopedic, neurologic, musculoskeletal, nutritional and radiographic testing, you can be assured that you are in educated and experienced hands. 

Specialities and Conditions Treated

As a sports physician, the common conditions that Dr. Berv treats in our office are : 

neck and back pain
joint pain, TMJ, headaches, arthritis
strains and sprains
shoulder, hip, knee, ankle, elbow pain
sciatica, disk problems
numbness and tingling or overuse injuries
sports and auto injuries
musculoskeletal conditions not responding to "western medical care". 

Most sports injuries and pain syndromes are responsive to acupuncture especially when used in combination with rehabilitative exercise and/or manual mobilization of the spine. 

Acupuncture Treatment Styles 

Acupuncture treatment styles vary depending upon your specific condition. In Dr. Berv's years of experience as a chiropractic sports physician, he has found that not all treatments work the same for everybody.  That is why not all clients find relief from just one form of acupuncture. In order to treat your specific condition, Dr. Berv is skilled and trained in many varieties of acupuncture including traditional, meridian, electro-acupuncture for spasms, strains and sprains. For those of you afraid of needles, Dr. Berv also utilizes laser acupuncture (a small pen-like device) that is a non-invasive approach to acupuncture.
