Serina often treats patients with acute and chronic pain and injuries. She frequently sees patients for pain in the neck, back, hips, sciatica, or joints like the shoulders, knees, wrists or ankles. Sometimes the pain is caused by a recent injury such as a car accident, workplace injury, or a sprain or fall. Other times it has an unknown cause or is a chronic injury that is exacerbated by repetitive stress, poor posture, or too much sitting or driving. Regardless of the cause, acupuncture can reduce inflammation and pain and help your body to heal. It is an excellent adjunct to physical therapy, chiropractic, and other therapies.
