Effective Neck Pain Relief
Acupuncture has been around for thousands of years. It is considered a non-traditional treatment in that it is not part of traditional western medicine. An increasing number of patients are turning to Acupuncture for a safe and effective form of Whiplash and Neck Pain Relief. A Licensed Acupuncture Practitioner inserts anywhere between 2 and 20 tiny, FDA approved needles into specific points in the body to stimulate the central nervous system. At St. Paul, MN’s Caron Chiropractic Clinic we have a licensed chiropractor who also holds a Minnesota State Chiropractic Acupuncture License.
Promotes Self-Healing Process
By stimulating the energy flow within the body, Acupuncture can promote the self-healing process. Ancient Chinese philosophy calls this energy “qi” or “chee”. Acupuncture Therapy seeks to unblock disruptions of energy and improve function. Studies have demonstrated that acupuncture treatments can affect the Endocrine System, Cardiovascular System, Immune System and Nervous System. By stimulating these systems you may find improved sleep, digestion, and pain.
A Licensed Acupuncturist is educated on the location of various acupuncture points on the human body that run along the energy pathways. At Caron Chiropractic Clinic our licensed acupuncture practitioner will meet with you to discuss your reasons for wanting acupuncture treatment. He may then do and evaluation of any imbalances that may be impacting your condition. After an assessment a treatment plan can be advised.
How Acupuncture Works For Pain
How acupuncture feels to the patient has been described as pressure, heaviness, tingling, numbness, warmth or a little achy. Most do not describe the sensation as at all painful or unpleasant.
- When the hair-thin needles are inserted the central nervous system is stimulated. The reaction can be a release of pain reducing chemicals. These naturally-occurring opioid peptide chemicals in the brain can significantly reduce pain.
- Stimulating the Acupuncture Points on the body may start the flow of endorphins in your body. These endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers.
