Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin and tissues at specific points on the body. There is no injection of any substance and the treatment itself causes minimal discomfort. A chiropractor is concerned with how the body’s skeletal and nervous systems are functioning. They are specialists in using exact, gentle manipulations of the spine to improve range of motion and flexibility. Some effective adjuncts to chiropractic treatment are soft tissue therapy and medical acupuncture.
Acupuncture is a therapeutic method used to encourage natural healing, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. Acupuncture is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. Relief is often obtained when traditional medical therapy has failed.
