Acupuncture is the practice of applying a thin, solid, stainless steel needle into tissue and then activating the point through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner’s hands or with electrical stimulation. Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. It is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and more recently Contemporary Medical Acupuncture (CMA). Practitioners choose points on the body lying on connected pathways or meridians to apply needles which can help improve circulation, promote relaxation of muscle, help neurological function, and provide pain relief.
Most insurance companies cover acupuncture sessions, and our patients consistently report relief from many ailments after beginning a course of treatment. In our clinical experience, acupuncture has shown to be a valid and useful adjunct to other therapies provided to maximize a patient’s recovery from injury and to promote a sense of general health and well-being.
Acupuncture for Pain
Acupuncture is known for being able to treat all types of musculoskeletal pain and is very effective at relieving chronic pain in the knees, neck, and back. Those who have experienced muscle spasms or trauma to the muscle can also benefit from acupuncture as it can calm those spastic muscles. Those who suffer from arthritis, sciatica, tendonitis, or other joint pain can benefit from the inflammation-reducing abilities of acupuncture, as well as the ability to restore natural function in the joints.
