When suffering from a migraine headache, the last thought on your mind is seeing a doctor who will be placing needles in your skin. But acupuncture is indeed a viable option for pain relief as well as other conditions and is becoming increasingly popular as a complement to conventional treatments. Your Lake Worth chiropractor will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have concerning acupuncture. In the meantime, here is a little more information concerning acupuncture.
Though acupuncture originated in China several thousand years ago, it has only recently grown in popularity here in the United States. Acupuncture involves the strategic placement of needles to encourage the body to improve function and heal itself. The Chinese believe there is a natural flow of energy through the body, known as Qi. For the body to properly function, Qi must flow freely through the body. Problems arise when your Qi is obstructed, and acupuncture is utilized to help restore this imbalance.
Increasingly, acupuncture is being used in unison with typical Western medical treatments. For example, to control pain after surgery or to curb nausea after chemotherapy. Acupuncture is also used for the promotion of health and overall well-being. In addition, acupuncture is also used for the treatment of such conditions as digestive disorders, muscular disorders as well as respiratory disorders. And it should be of no surprise that acupuncture can aid in the treatment of stress and other emotional conditions.
Regardless the condition you suffer, acupuncture just might be the solution. Give us a call for further details.
