Acupuncture with Your Chiropractic Care in West Hartford
Most of us don't think of going to see the chiropractor for an acupuncture session. But you can experience the benefits of acupuncture at West Hartford Chiropractic. Acupuncture and chiropractic care are a perfect combination for helping you to begin healing from the inside out.
Acupuncture at the Chiropractic Office May Not Be What You Expect
Many people think acupuncture is all about needles. But other tools of acupuncture include:
- Metallic beads taped to the skin.
- Fingertip pressure.
- Non-piercing needles.
- Color laser treatment.
- Electrical stimulation.
- Moxibustion, or using the heat that is produced by burning herbs in a glass container.
The idea underlying acupuncture is that when you are unwell, the energies of your body are unbalanced. Your body's energy flows through channels that can be blocked or overcharged. Applying outside energy to an energy channel in just the right place rebalances the energies of your body and returns you to your normal state of good health.
What kinds of problems can your chiropractor treat with acupuncture?
Chiropractic care and acupuncture are a harmonious combination for lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, slipped discs, headaches, sciatica, and fibromyalgia. Your chiropractor may also combine them with functional medicine to support your recovery from a wide range of conditions including arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, high blood pressure, low blood pressure, muscle spasms, and headaches.
It's natural to wonder how a drug-free, surgery-free technique like acupuncture could really work. The language of acupuncture in Traditional Chinese Medicine is mystical and metaphorical, not to be taken literally. But when the right energies are applied at the right places on the body, improvements occur. Even practitioners of conventional medicine accept this. If you were to take a look at PubMed from the National Library of Medicine, you would find no fewer than 6,992 studies of acupuncture in clinical trials. That's why acupuncture is accepted at major hospitals and medical schools in the United States and around the world.
