Definition of Acupuncture
Acupuncture dates back to ancient China. Our trained and certified acupuncturist will insert thin needles into your skin. They're strategically placed to promote different health benefits. The Chinese believe it rebalances the flow of qi or chi, which is considered the flow of energy in the body. In other cultures, acupuncture is believed to stimulate the connective tissue, muscles and nerves. Some also say the needles act as natural stimulants. By stimulating different areas of the body, acupuncture has the ability to heighten the body's natural defense against pain. The needles are said to enhance blood flow throughout the body as well.
Benefits of Acupuncture
At our office, we utilize acupuncture to relieve your neck and back pain. It's been used on carpal tunnel patients as well as patients who have elbow tendonitis or another similar condition. Acupuncture is relatively safe for most people. In fact, it's even safe for pregnant women in order to decrease pain and discomfort during pregnancy and delivery.
Safety of Acupuncture
At our Midtown, New York chiropractic clinic, we make the process as safe as possible for our clients by never reusing needles. We also acquire a detailed medical history, so we can identify any issues like a bleeding disorder that could interfere with our Upper East Side, New York's procedure. The general region around the Rockefeller Center benefits this safe procedure. Generally, the only symptoms you'll experience are soreness at the injection site, bruising and minor bleeding. There is only a slight chance you'll experience any side effects.
Your First Acupuncture Treatment
When you come to our NYC office for treatment for elbow, headache, back or neck pain, you can expect the first appointment will take about an hour because of paperwork, but a typical appointment won't last that long. At your first appointment, our chiropractic doctor will give you a physical examination and may take imaging to get an idea of what's going on in your musculoskeletal system.
