The origin of acupuncture predates all of us — it was first used by the Chinese sometime between 2500-4000 years ago. The earliest theories of are based on the idea that in our body, there are patterns of energy flow that keep us healthy. When this flow is disrupted in some way, disease and pain can occur. Those who practice acupuncture believe that acupuncture can correct these imbalances at specific points that are close to the skin. Caron Chiropractic Clinic provides safe, effective and tailored acupuncture and chiropractic services to those in the St Paul, MN area.
Only recently has acupuncture become more accepted and widespread in the US as modern research has deemed it safe treatment for many common health issues, including pain relief, arthritis treatment, carpal tunnel, as well as immune diseases, gastrointestinal and even assisting in the treatment of addiction (and many more). Acupuncture helps your body heal itself and most treatments include the insertion of tiny, completely sterilized, stainless steel needles into specific points on the surface of the skin. Caron Chiropractic Clinic combines acupuncture with chiropractic services to help patients achieve the best possible outcomes. This combination of therapy can be helpful for many conditions, specifically those seeking help with pain management.
