Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners have been treating patients with acupuncture for many many years. It is based on the principle that there are energetic pathways or channels throughout the body. These pathways influence associated internal organs and structures. Energy from these pathways surfaces at various points on the body therefore identified as acupuncture points. Each of these points serves as an access route to the deeper circulatory channels within. It is a safe treatment for many disorders.
This technique can treat a variety of conditions. Such as musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain) to nausea, migraines, headaches, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility. Acupuncture can help reduce stress while bringing emotional balance to patients. Additionally, patients who are recuperating from an illness, injury, or surgery can often recover faster because acupuncture can increase circulation and reduce inflammation. It may assist in the prevention of disease and in the maintenance of your general well-being.
For patients who want to experience the best of what both chiropractic and acupuncture have to offer, an evolving field of medicine known as chiropractic acupuncture combines the two. AtChiro & Sports Med the technique is used by inserting extremely fine gauge needles at selected points, stimulating them and thereby activating the body’s natural healing abilities. These points are also places to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. This stimulation appears to boost the activity of your body’s natural painkillers and increase blood flow.
