Acupuncture involves inserting thin needling into the skin at precise pressure points to assist with the healing process and produce an analgesic (pain killing) effect. At Family Health Options we use a variety of dry needling and acupuncture techniques, both Chinese and Western style, to control and modulate pain. The chiropractor may also incorporate electrical stimulation of the needles. Acupuncture has positive effects on muscle tissue, peripheral nerves, spinal nerves, and even in the higher centers of the brain, allowing acupuncture to be an effective treatment for many neuromusculoskeletal conditions.
These include things such as, but not limited to:
- tennis & golfers elbow
- back and neck pain
- knee pain
- shoulder pain
- disc herniations
- chronic pain
The chiropractor will perform a thorough history and physical exam to determine the best treatment plan for you. Book an appointment with one of the acupuncture providers for an acupuncture treatment or if you want to learn more about how acupuncture could help with your complaint.
