Generally speaking, Chinese medicine views pain as a condition where the energy of the body (Qi) has become stagnated or stuck or an area where the qi flow has become diminished. Pain is usually treated with acupuncture, which stimulates the pressure points and redirects qi, thus relieving the pain. Dr. Chen specializes in treating the following types of pain.
