How We Adapt to Chronic Pain

Acupuncture for Chronic Pain,

There are many ways to adapt to injury and chronic pain. You can…

 Limit activity
• Favor the injury
• Rest more, do less
• Use pain relievers, medications and anti-inflammatories

While these adaptations may temporarily dull the pain, they cost you productivity, sleep and can eventually begin to gnaw away at your health in general. Not to mention side effects such weight gain, dependency on medications, stress and inactivity.

Hard as it is to believe, chronic pain is often traced to a tight muscle and the subsequent structural fallout. Fortunately, a tight muscle is not difficult to correct.

A tight muscle is a bit of a con artist. You don’t even know you have been robbed until something is missing. As a subversive intruder, the tight muscle bypasses your early warning system. Over time you notice that you are not operating at top capacity & optimal efficiency. Then one day, there is pain and chronic tension and lack of range of motion. The tight muscle has intruded, affecting your structure, your function and even your day.

What happens when your muscle is tight?

A tight muscle is actually a short & weak muscle. It doesn’t know how to relax and it tires quickly. It recovers slowly from exertion and contracts excessively. Ultimately, this short and weak muscle cannot generate the force needed to work properly and recruits other muscles in the neighborhood. The intruder has now set off the alarm system and you move to the next level, better known as chronic pain syndrome.

What does your tight muscle do?

Chronically tight muscles create strain, pain and inflammation and will lead to compensatory patterns in your body. This is the set-up for trauma and injury, along with further pain, swelling, weakness and reduced range of motion. Symptoms of numbness and tingling can follow due to nerve compression. Eventually, joint stress occurs that can lead to degenerative changes such as osteoarthritis, bone spur formation, chronic inflammation and disc problems. The intruder has now invited the neighbors and the block party has begun.

Fix the pain by fixing the problem.
Using acupuncture to treat chronic pain activates your body’s inherent self-healing mechanisms. Tight muscles relax, blood flow increases, inflammation decreases and proper function is restored. After an acupuncture therapy program, many clients report that their pain had diminished or vanished without unwanted side effects and they have significantly increased:

• Range of Motion
• Activity level
• Energy
• Sleep
• Sense of Well-Being

Call us at Old Pueblo Acupuncture to schedule a treatment. (520) 722.9101

We can help you break the pain cycle, accelerate recovery and regain your quality of life.


In an official report, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials, the World Health Organization (WHO) has listed the following pain conditions that have been shown through controlled trials to be treated effectively by acupuncture:

low back pain
neck pain
tennis elbow
knee pain
shoulder pain
facial pain
dental pain
TMJ pain
rheumatoid arthritis

“ Living with chronic back and hip pain was an everyday occurrence for me but when the pain became too great to ignore, I sought out acupuncture. The treatments provided dramatic results and a welcomed relief after years of taking medications for my pain. Best of all, I am able to do the things that I love and don’t have to live with daily pain” – DB

Old Pueblo Acupuncture would like to thank the American Heart Association for having us at their Go Red For Women event last weekend.  It was a great success and we had a lot of fun.  For those of you that did not attend, we had a booth setup at the Expo where we spoke to folks curious about Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

Here are some pics from the event:

Thank You Tim Blee!

We are so honored…


It has been one year since Old Pueblo Acupuncture officially took over the practice of esteemed Tucson acupuncturist Tim Blee.  Mr. Blee has gained a large following because of his great intuition, wisdom, and personal experience in caring for his patients.  They love him and were very sad to see him go.  He had an equally hard time leaving his practice behind, in part, because he wanted to make sure his patients were well taken care after he left.  He needed somewhere he could trust to send his patients.

He found that trust in Old Pueblo Acupuncture.  This referral continues to this day.  We are proud to say that Mr. Blee continues to trust and refer us one year later because of the overwhelming feedback he gets from his former patients. 

Thank you, Tim.  We appreciate so much that you trust in our knowledge and care to step in where you left off.  It means so much to us that we are your first thought when someone calls you looking for help and relief.
