Acupuncture

The Acupuncture Process

We have experience and training with this type of therapy. A chiropractor on our team knows where to find the pressure points that can relieve the specific type of pain that you have. Those pressure points are located in areas all around the body, and each corresponds to a specific area of pain that people have. Our practitioner takes tiny needles and applies them to the correct pressure points. The needles are pressed into the skin. Then, the practitioner might use either hand movements or other means to activate the needles. Acupuncture therapy has been done for millennia, and it may be effective for many patients who live with pain. 

How Does It Work?

In ancient China, acupuncture was a common therapy that was an important part of their traditional medical treatments. The idea was that the life energy, called the chi, must flow freely around the patient's body to promote health. This chi flows through energy pathways, but these pathways can develop blockages. It's the blockages that create the pain and other health problems. Using acupuncture therapy is a way to remove those blockages and allow the chi to flow freely once again. Though we now that no such energy exists, the practice of acupuncture has been found to help promote the release of the body's natural painkilling chemicals so that the pain can be relieved.

It is used for a wide variety of health problems and is especially helpful for pain. It can be used for chronic pain such as headaches, sciatica, fibromyalgia, back pain, and nausea. It might be used after surgery to treat the pain that it causes.
