We do not currently have an Acupuncturist on staff. We are in the process of actively searching for the right candidate to join the practice.
We are excited to offer our patients multiple modalities through which their comfort and overall wellbeing can improve.
Acupuncture is a wonderful adjunct to chiropractic care. This form of therapy involves the use of hair-thin needles, strategically inserted into acupuncture points that correlate with energy pathways in the body. Acupuncture promotes natural healing and improved overall function.
How acupuncture works
The philosophy of Chinese medicine seeks to prevent and resolve disease by freeing blocked energy, which promotes a harmonious physical state. Simply stated, energy should be able to flow throughout the body without obstacle or interruption. The cold factor, yin, should be perfectly balanced by the hot factor, yang. Obstructions in energy pathways are unblocked by the insertion of tiny needles, thus regulating imbalances.
Does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture involves needles, so it is only natural to question the comfort of this form of treatment. Patients may envision the same type of needle that they may experience in a medical setting, such as when they have blood drawn or get a shot. The acupuncture needle need not be hollow in the center and is therefore only about the diameter of a human hair. Most patients feel little to no sensation from the needle, nothing more than a slight "ache" or pinch.
Eastern medicine has relied upon the power of energy and acupuncture for thousands of years. Millions of people across the globe have been treated with this type of therapy with successful outcomes. Individuals who are familiar with acupuncture may obtain care to restore balance, treat a particular health concern, or to prevent disease with the occasional "tune up" to their flow of energy.
Acupuncture has been used to treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system, including injuries, stiffness, tendonitis, bursitis, sciatica, back pain, headaches, neck pain, and more. This modality has also helped men and women in the area of weight control, dermatologic issues, diabetes management, stress management, respiratory conditions, emotional and psychological wellbeing, and numerous other concerns.
