Orthopedics and Pain Treatment at the YSU Community Clinic

The Orthopedic & Pain Clinic Specializes in the Treatment of:
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Back pain
- Knee injuries
- Neck and shoulder stiffness
- Jaw pain
Our Treatment Philosophy
In Chinese medicine, both the practitioner and patient participate in the care process. The practitioner contributes his/her medical skills and the patient attends to day-to-day aspects of living a healthy lifestyle. This proactive and collaborative approach is the essence of Chinese Medicine. It demands that practitioners assess the complexities of each patient’s case and recommend personalized treatment plans that address root causes of illness or chief complaints.
Recommended care plans may include a combination of additional acupuncture treatments, herbs, dietary recommendations, qigong (breathing and movement exercise), and other Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities. The philosophy of the Community Clinic is to provide integrated medicine by treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit, not just the disease.
