Acupuncture for back pain, is an effective and minimally invasive treatment that can be used on patients of all ages.
Acupuncture works by using very thin, sterile needles to stimulate the flow of Qi (pronounced “chee”) or life energy throughout the body. This energy travels through channels or meridians throughout the body. When there is a blockage of this energy, it results in conditions ranging from back pain and headaches to wrist and knee pain. Properly placed acupuncture needles help to restore the normal flow of energy, relieving the patient’s ache, pain, or illness.
We use acupuncture as a complement to the healing power of chiropractic care. By combining chiropractic care and acupuncture, our patients often feel better, heal faster and stay well longer. Acupuncture is very helpful for musculoskeletal issues such as neck pain, back pain, headaches and any joint problems in the ankles, knees, elbows and shoulders.
Many patients find that acupuncture also helps with stress relief and other unusual conditions such as rashes, vertigo, whiplash or radiating pain (like sciatica, neuropathy and neuralgia).
When you arrive, we’ll sit down for a consultation to discuss what is bothering you and find out more about your condition. Then, we’ll perform a thorough examination of the area(s) of your concern. If you’re new to acupuncture or have questions about the process, just ask us about it. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable before we begin, even demonstrating on ourselves to show you how simple and pain free the treatment can be. Because of the fineness of the needles (they’re about as thick as a strand of hair), many patients don’t even realize the session has begun!
