Raul Beltran, Jr.

OTR/L., L.Ac.

I completed my graduate studies at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine at San Diego. Before my graduate studies I completed my bachelors of science in Occupational Therapy at University of Illinois at Chicago. I specialize in orthopedic acupuncture and musculoskeletal injuries. I take great pride in alleviating both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.

Orthopedic Acupuncture Where East Meets West

Our Acupuncturist, Raul Beltran Jr. L.Ac., OTR/L, is also an occupational therapist who blends ancient traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, orthopedic acupuncture, neuro-acupuncture and modern rehabilitation techniques. His unique style blends augmented soft tissue mobilization, decompressive myofascial release, trigger point therapy along with classical herbal, meridian, Qi, Yin and Yang theories.

Orthopedic acupuncture expands on Chinese medicine's vast body of knowledge. Orthopedic acupuncture is a highly skilled intervention that utilizes fine, sterile, one time use filiform needles as fine as the diameter of human hair to stimulate and repair tight bands of muscles called trigger points, musculoskeletal pain and movement dysfunctions.

Many of the orthopedic acupuncture sessions utilize electrical stimulation in order to help stimulate the body's production of enkephalins, dopamine and serotonin. These neuropeptides and hormones reduce pain and create a deeply calming effect. Neuro-acupuncture utilizes specific nerve pathways and or dorsal root nerve segments to improve motor function, strength, reduce pain, and repair soft tissue damage.

Orthopedic conditions such as ligament tears, knee surgeries, shoulder surgeries, hip and knee replacement, tendonitis, repetitive injuries, sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, nerve pain or nerve dysfunction, pinched nerves, myofascial pain, pre-post surgical rehabilitation, as well as a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions can benefit from Raul's unique blend of classical and modern acupuncture techniques.

Raul's purpose and mission is to help as many people as possible avoid unnecessary drugs, unnecessary surgery and help his patients achieve a harmonious balance within the neuromuscular and meridian systems thereby achieving optimal health and wellness.

How Safe Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is one of the safest and most trusted alternative medical modalities. We use the highest grade, sterile, one-time-use surgical steel needles. The needles are hair-thin. You may experience two sensations with acupuncture: the insertion (which may feel like a mosquito bite), and the arrival of the body's awareness at the point of insertion (which may feel achy, warm, electric...each person has a unique experience).

YOUR HEALTH, HAPPINESS, SUCCESS, AND SAFETY IS OUR PURPOSE.
