About pain management – Chinese medicine view
60 to 80% of patients who visit a primary health practitioner have some forms of pain. Dr Zheng says “Pain is a common yet complex symptom, and can affect one’s life profoundly. Pain sufferers often feel irritable, have low energy and insomnia, and can suffer from functional impairment. I believe pain and the sufferer should be understood and managed as a whole, and a combination of various therapies often achieves better therapeutic results than one particular therapy does.”
