What Is Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a primary health care modality that has flourished in China for over 2,500 years and is widely used throughout Asia and in Europe. It is considered one of the newest primary health care provisions in this country.
Acupuncture has grown as both western and oriental health care providers, medical researchers, and the public experience it, integrate it in their health care and spread its benefits.
Far more than a technique of inserting tiny thread like needles along meridian lines of the body, acupuncture’s complex system of diagnostic corollaries take into consideration you as a whole, not just isolated symptoms.
Orthopedic acupuncture and sports acupuncture focus heavily on western anatomy. For many years acupuncturists have been performing what is now called dry needling with fantastic results. Needling the trigger and motor points of muscles is vital in correcting these tissues and has been done for many years.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is most widely known for its effectiveness in treating pain and headache. The world health organization has also found it effective in treating a variety of illnesses. While we focus primarily on orthopedic and sports acupuncture we also want to treat the individual as well. During each visit we also work on other issues we may feel to be out of balance, thus helping you recover from your injuries more quickly.
