What is acupuncture? Acupuncture is an ancient traditional form of Chinese medicine. The technique employs the use of thin needles inserted into the skin at various specific nerve-rich points of the body.
Is acupuncture safe? Our team of licensed professionals provide safe treatment that is relatively pain-free. Millions of Americans receive acupuncture and never have any issues with licensed professionals.
How does acupuncture work? When acupuncture was originally invented, it was practiced by doctors and scientists who thought many kinds of illnesses were due to an imbalance of energy within the body. They determined that a good way to unblock and release energy was to restore the natural flow of the body's energy by utilizing needles at certain points called meridians.
Are there any side effects of acupuncture? With the exception of the occasional bruising in the area where the needle was inserted, there are no side effects to acupuncture treatment.
Why should I get acupuncture? There are many reasons why a person might choose acupuncture as a treatment or procedure. Here at our chiropractor office, we generally recommend acupuncture as a type of treatment to alleviate chronic pain and to treat neurological and muscular disorders like headaches, tendinitis, lower back pain, tennis elbow, sciatica, and osteoarthritis.
What are the advantages of acupuncture? If you are not comfortable with receiving a surgical procedure for lower back problems, then acupuncture paired with an exercise regimen may be the perfect treatment plan for you. The other advantage to acupuncture is that it helps avoid the need of pain medication to deal with your symptoms. Our team will be able to help you live pain-free.
