Pain Management

We have many natural solutions to get you out of pain and to help you enjoy your life again. Pain can be debilitating and depressing. Pain killers and surgery often lead to side-effects and more issues.


At taproot, we can help you get better by addressing the pain symptoms, while also treating the root of the problem and allowing your body to restore optimal function.

Acupuncture has been shown to release the neurotransmitter adenosine, which is you body's natural pain killer.


Some patients come to us to avoid surgery, to prep from surgery, or to recover from surgery. Acupuncture has been proven many times over to be a safe and efficient alternative to pain killers and more invasive interventions. It has little to no side effects.
