The acupuncture at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation is based on ancient Chinese medical practices. It works by restoring the body’s natural balance to release blocked energy and stimulate the body to heal itself.
Both Chinese and Western studies have proven that the insertion of needles at specific points on the body can help with the release of certain chemical neurotransmitters. The human body was designed to release these neurotransmitters naturally. Endorphins, for example, enhance the immune system and alleviate pain.

Physical therapy is an important component in the treatment process for fibromyalgia; it can help patients improve functioning and mobility, prevent further deterioration, and relieve pain. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, our licensed physical therapists work in conjunction with our Medical Director to create customized physical therapy programs for fibromyalgia patients.
