You have probably heard of Acupuncture and perhaps have friends or family members who have undergone acupuncture treatment. Though this ancient form of Chinese medicine has been used for a few thousand years, it has only recently gained wider acceptance and understanding in the United States.
Today, many seeking relief from back and neck pain turn to healthcare professionals who perform Acupuncture because it has an excellent track record and incredible results. Recent scientific studies are validating acupuncture’s effectiveness.
Welcome to Modern Acupuncture
The latest technology makes acupuncture precise, scientific and evidence based. In our office we utilize Digital Meridian Imaging, or AcuGraph.
Acupuncture is commonly administered using very thin, strictly regulated metallic filiform acupuncture needles (no wider than the diameter of a human hair). These are inserted strategically at specific locations on the body. Stimulating the central nervous system by means of acupuncture causes certain chemicals to be released, alleviating back pain and/or neck pain and providing both a physical and emotional uplifting effect. More specifically, acupuncture:
The tip of an acupuncture needle is actually designed for painless insertion: it comes to a smooth rather than a sharp point. The needles vary in length, and these lengths are intended for various areas of the body. Also, needles are inserted into or sometimes along and under the skin on the surface of the body.
Your experience with acupuncture will be unique to you, but most who have this treatment will feel a tingling sensation or they’ll feel notably relaxed or energized.
