This healing technique, first practiced in China thousands of years ago, works on the idea that the body’s chi, or energy, flows in precise patterns just as the nervous system extends from head to toe.
This energy can be stopped, stimulated, or re-routed at points called meridians. If something interferes with the natural flow of energy, illness results. On the other hand, if an illness or injury has disrupted the flow of energy, direct stimulation of the meridians can put the energy back on its proper course.
Acupuncturists have developed complex maps displaying the precise location of each meridian and the part of the body it affects.
While traditional needles are still widely used in stimulating the meridians, electrical stimulation of these points also works well. The insertion of the needles does not cause any significant pain, and while the first sessions might take up to an hour, a typical follow-up session may take only half as long.
These sessions, in conjunction with spinal adjustments, massage, and other therapies, have helped many of our Lauderhill patients recover more quickly while regaining strength and flexibility.
Lauderhill Acupuncture Pain Relief
Back Pain, Neck Pain, and Holistic Healing Through Acupuncture
This technique is also a powerful tool for managing back pain, neck pain, headaches, and migraines, as well as other kinds of pain.
The needles appear to reduce pain in two different ways — by encouraging the production of natural stimulants in the brain and by stimulating the neurotransmitters that reduce pain sensitivity.
One study indicated that pain thresholds in patients increased by 50 percent after this form of treatment.
Less pain means that muscles stay more relaxed, allowing our adjustment and massage techniques to do their job even more efficiently. We can even include periodic “maintenance” sessions as part of an ongoing wellness and pain management plan.
If you suffer neck pain, back pain, or other debilitating issues from a car accident injury, sports injury, or chronic pain condition, seek a Lauderhill chiropractor who believes in a “whole-body” approach to making you well, contact our office today.
