Jacobson Sports Chiropractic Offers Acupuncture
Some injuries and conditions of the musculoskeletal system can cause ongoing pain that interferes with your normal activities. Although many pain relievers are available, these drugs may not provide full relief or may have unpleasant side effects. Acupuncture offers an alternative method of dealing with discomfort that can be used along with, or instead of, conventional pain relief measures. At Jacobson Sports Chiropractic in Lakeway, TX, we provide acupuncture for pain relief.
Acupuncture is a healing practice that has been used in China for thousands of years. The method involves using very fine needles that are inserted into specific areas of the body to relieve pain and improve healing. The needles are placed in meridians of the body where energy is believed to flow. Today's research suggests that the method helps to stimulate the body’s production of healing chemicals and natural pain relievers. One of the advantages of acupuncture is that it does not interact with other types of medication and has few side effects.
Conditions Acupuncture Can Help
Acupuncture can be used to help a variety of health problems. Your chiropractor may use it to relieve back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or discomfort from arthritis. It can be safety used with other forms of chiropractic care, such as manual adjustment, trigger point therapy, or physical therapy exercises.
What Happens During an Acupuncture Session
Your acupuncturist will determine in advance the precise areas of the body that require treatment to provide the best results for your needs. During a session, you will lie on a table comfortably and the sterilized needles will be inserted into pre-determined areas. You will only feel a slight pinching during the insertion. The needles will then be left in place for a period of time. The practitioner may adjust the needles periodically. At the end of the session, the needles are removed, again, without discomfort. You can then resume your normal activities in greater comfort.
