Thinking about Chiropractic Treatment and Need Relief Now? Try Acupuncture
Acupuncture has steadily gained acceptance among both medical professionals and patients in need of treatment. The minimally invasive procedure, if you can even consider it to be invasive at all, has a good track record and has brought relief to many. Everyone's case is different, but if you need treatment for pain or some other health conditions, and you're still deciding whether or not to try chiropractic treatment, acupuncture is a suitable starting place. Here at Lake Spine Specialists in Mentor, we offer acupuncture alongside our more traditional chiropractic services.
Why Would Acupuncture Be Appropriate?
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needle tips into your skin. No blood is drawn, and for many people, the needles either cause no feeling or a slight tingling sensation. Occasionally a patient may feel a slight ache, but other than that, there's no pain, no stinging, and no scarring or bruising when the procedure is done correctly.
Acupuncture works on the energy that flows through your body, correcting imbalances and achieving a harmonious flow. It can be a lot easier for many people to take if they are very sensitive to the heavier pressure and adjustments of typical chiropractic treatments. The number of treatments needed, and the number of needles and points involved varies from person to person because these energy imbalances are customized to each person's lifestyle.
Patients who have injuries or disabilities that prevent their body from undergoing chiropractic adjustment are also good candidates for acupuncture. You can also have both types of treatment done to combat your health issues on multiple fronts. Don't forget that your diet, including staying properly hydrated, and the amount of sleep you get all help you live a healthier life.
