Acupuncture is a modality of Chinese medicine that consists of the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points along meridians shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems. These points have been mapped by the Chinese over a period of about 3000 years. In the past 20-30 years electromagnetic research has confirmed the existence and location of these points.
At Hart Chiropractic our acupuncturists on staff work alongside the Doctor and other team members. Combining the expertise of both the Chiropractor and the Acupuncturist in this team approach ensures the best quality care for the patient.
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC AND ACUPUNCTURE COMBINED?
Combined treatments have a impactful clinical relationship with one another. By stimulating the acupuncture points of patients undergoing advanced chiropractic care or seeking better health, a dual healing effect can be set in motion, which will result in better aligned spinal cord and ligaments as well as bolstered body functions. When they are properly combined, chiropractic and acupuncture treatments can effectively correct imbalances, boost natural healing, improve flexibility and energy levels, and restore the body to its prior state of health.
DO ALL PATIENTS RECIEVE ACUPUNCTURE AND CHIROPRACTIC?
Not all patients have the same problems, they do not require the same care. During an initial exam the doctor will develop a treatment plan with the care that is appropriate for you.
CAN I TRY ACUPUNCTURE WITHOUT CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
Yes both of our acupuncturists are fully qualified to treat patients without the need to see the doctor first.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL IT TAKE?
Some people experience dramatic relief in the first treatment. For complex or chronic conditions, more treatments may be recommended. For acute problems fewer visits are needed. A treatment plan that includes the expected number of treatments will be discussed during your initial visit.
