Why Visit an Acupuncturist?
Acupuncture is a noninvasive technique involving the placement of very tiny needles into various points on your body. It is particularly effective for chronic back and neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, and headaches.
Acupuncture is among the world’s oldest healing techniques and has been an essential part of traditional Chinese medicine for more than 3.000 years. Western medicine recognizes acupuncture as a valuable treatment option for men and women who want relief from chronic pain.
In 1997, the United States National Institute of Health documented the age-old Chinese healing technique of acupuncture as a safe, effective practice for treating a wide range of health conditions.
Acupuncture is a safe way to get relief from several different types of chronic pain. Each treatment lasts about 20 minutes, and uses between five and 15 needles.
During your first appointment, you’ll discuss any areas of pain you’ve been having difficulty with. Then, the doctor will create a customized treatment plan based on your individual needs. That includes how many sessions you will need for maximum pain-relief and health benefits.
