Christensen Chiropractic Clinic Offers Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an Asian healing method that is being recognized as a valuable therapy to manage pain and other symptoms. It can be used in combination with other types of treatment to provide full relief of symptoms. At Christensen Chiropractic Clinic in Carroll, IA, we offer acupuncture sessions to manage pain and aid health problems.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a healing method that has been used for thousands of years in the countries of Asia. It uses very fine needles, inserted at particular points in the body, to reduce pain and improve symptoms. The needles are left in place for a time and then removed. There are no side effects from the process, and the patient can continue their usual activities after a session.
Conditions Acupuncture Can Help
Acupuncture has been used in western culture for relief from pain for many years. More recently, its value has been recognized, and many physicians recommend it as an adjunct therapy for a variety of conditions. It can be helpful in relieving back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, dental pain, menstrual discomfort and pain related to cancer treatment. In addition, acupuncture can also help with nausea from chemotherapy. Acupuncture can also relieve pain from labor and can reduce the symptoms of respiratory conditions, such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is also used to relieve depression and help with addiction.
What You Can Expect During An Acupuncture Session
For your acupuncture session, you will lie on a comfortable table. Your acupuncturist will insert the fine needles into the areas of the body that will most effectively relieve your symptoms. The insertion of the needles does not hurt, but you may feel a slight pinch. The needles will then remain in place for a period of time, and your acupuncturist will manipulate or heat the needles to enhance their effect. The needles will then be removed, and you can continue your normal activities.
