At Chiyu Center, we do wonderful work with pain relief.  We understand how pain and injury can color enjoyment and ruin quality of life.   As active members of the front range community, we value the ability to go hiking, skiing, bicycling, ice skating, play with children and grandchildren, and otherwise enjoy life.

We also understand that there are very sound reasons to not rely on pharmaceutical management of pain.  The opioid crisis in America and danger of addiction is real.  Organ damage due to overuse of anti-inflammatories is also real.  Luckily, integrative medicine provide real, safe, effective alternatives for pain relief.

Acupuncture, cupping, electro-acupuncture, and injection therapy are powerfully effective tools for pain.

Our therapies are non-addictive, safe, and do not cause dangerous complications.  They can be used by themselves or in conjunction with other integrative techniques such as chiropractic, massage, and physical therapy.  At Chiyu Center, we have plenty of experience with both sports and motor vehicle accident injuries.  You can rest assured that if you want to get back to doing what you love, we’ve got the knowledge to help you get there…. FAST!

Work & Play (Sports) Injuries:

Whether you’ve been cycling, running, playing tennis, doing some DIY home repair, or gardening, injuries happen.   But they don’t need to knock you out for days, weeks, and months!  Life doesn’t stop just because you got hurt.  We can help you get back to being the champion that you are.  Call us now (503-995-0944) and get back to doing what you love!

“I pulled my quadriceps right before state track finals.  I was ranked third in the state and needed to place high for college scholarship.  One acupuncture treatment and the pain was gone.  The next morning, I placed 2nd in the state!”  ~  Ann, 18 – high school student

Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA) Injuries:

Getting involved in a motor vehicle accident is no fun!  But there’s no reason you should suffer with anxiety, worry, and pain for months after it.  In fact, we think you should be feeling immediate relief after your first treatment, be back to your daily activities within a few weeks, and be fully recovered in a few months or less.   Do you believe that your accident could be a blessing in disguise?  We do — because we think it could be the impetus that transforms your life.   Learn more.


Common Questions:

Do you need to see my imaging?

Nope!  Of course, if you have it, bring it in.  We like to gather all the information we can.  However, we do not need it.  Imaging isn’t always conclusive (and we know how frustrating and nerve-wracking that can be).  But, please, try not to worry.  To us, it doesn’t matter if your doctors can diagnose your pain or not.   It truly does not matter if your X-rays, MRIs, and other tests have come back with a result.  If there’s pain, we can treat it.  In most cases, we can provide immediate pain relief regardless of tendonitis, myositis, strain, or sprain.   We then obtain lasting relief for tendon, muscular, neural, ligament, and joint pain by spacing treatment out, gradually extending the time between treatment, until the pain is completely gone and doesn’t return.

Do you see high school athletes and children?

Yes.  At Chiyu Center, we treat injuries in adults, teens, children, toddlers, and even infants.

Do you accept workers compensation or health insurance claims?

We do not process workers compensation claims.   We are not in-network with any health insurance companies and do not file health insurance paperwork.  We are, however, happy to give you a superbill that you can submit to your company for reimbursement.  The only insurance paperwork we process is for Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA) claims.

How long will it take for me to get better?

At Chiyu Center, we always listen to our patients.  After all, you know your body best!   Remember, we are experts in using these medicines for injury recovery, and we have years of clinical research and experience to help inform treatment decisions.   We don’t believe in over-treatment.  We also know the value of continuing treatment until the body has fully recovered, in order to prevent backsliding and re-aggravation of injury.  We believe that wise treatment decisions are made together, with open communication between provider and patient.  We get our great results and rave reviews because we listen, carefully observe, and are as committed to helping you achieve your goals as you are.  We are here for you every step of the way!

When we create a treatment plan, we pay close attention to how your individual body is healing and we adjust treatment accordingly.  We typically see that the use of acupuncture and injection therapy drastically reduces how long it takes for injuries to heal.  For example, a patient with inflammation in ligaments or tendons may be told it will take 3-4 months of rest for the body to heal the affected area.  But, we often find that within just a few treatments our patients are able to do daily activities, and after 10 treatments or 2 months, our patients are fully pain-free, have regained full use of the injured area, and the pain does not return.
