COLUMBUS, Ohio --

There is a chronic pain epidemic in Ohio, but more and more people are turning to alternatives to pain pills and opiates.

Now, holistic treatments from massage to acupuncture are helping people escape pills and defeat the pain in their lives.

At Max Sports Medicine in Columbus, Dr. Doug Diorio tackles some of the worst pain with acupuncture.

Pat Puchalski, 63, runs marathons and ironman competitions, and started acupuncture after a biking accident.

"To have a concussion, sprained neck and I was told I should look at surgery, and Dr. [Diorio] said, 'Let's try acupuncture,'" Puchalski said.

It's not a new concept. Acupuncture is centuries old, used to treat all kinds of pain.

"Bowel pain, gut pain, I treat a lot of back pain and neck pain with this," Diorio siad.

It's been a big part of his practice for 14 years, and Diorio said it's all about bringing balance to the body.

Tonight at 6 p.m., hear how acupuncture and other holistic treatments are making a difference in the lives of Central Ohio pain sufferers.
