Conventional medicine focuses on attempting to treat disease once it has already occurred, perhaps altering your health forever in the process. At Advanced Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy, however, we emphasize using safe and natural treatments to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. In many cases, we can help reverse or even eradicate symptoms of disease, but we prefer to avoid them completely where possible.
That’s where acupuncture comes in. One of the most popular treatments at our wellness center, acupuncture may just be the answer you’re looking for. Not only does it address a huge range of conditions, it is one of the best preventative measures in our toolkit … and yours.
If you’re trying to regain your health, mobility or comfort, or simply want to maintain a maximum level of wellness, acupuncture can help. Come to Advanced Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy for acupuncture that actually works. Our safe, holistic and completely natural methods have been trusted by people for thousands of years, and we want to bring them to you next.
What Is Acupuncture?
Wondering just what acupuncture is, and why it’s relevant for pain management and other conditions? Acupuncture is a time-honored tradition of putting very fine needles just under the surface of the skin at certain points around the body, called meridians. These meridians relate to other points inside the body, such as organs or tissues. By activating them, energy becomes unblocked, life force can flow more freely throughout your body, and its own healing mechanisms are activated.
What Are the Benefits of Acupuncture?
Acupuncture helps with a huge variety of conditions, including:
- Muscle and joint pain
- Poor digestion
- Respiratory conditions
- Anxiety and depression
- Insomnia and stress
- … and much more.
Does Acupuncture Hurt?
No. At most, you may feel a small “zing” when the needle penetrates your skin, but the needles are too fine to cause actual pain.
What Is Needleless Acupuncture?
For the young or people who just don’t like needles, we offer two alternatives to needle acupuncture: acupressure and cold laser therapy. Both are completely painless, and provide the same service of activating different points on the body without penetration.
How Does Acupuncture Work at Advanced Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy?
Here at our clinic, acupuncture is one of the many tools in our toolkit. When used alone or in conjunction of other chiropractic services, we have seen it promote overall physical and emotional health for many of our patients, and we would like to bring the same benefits to you through a customized plan that meets your individual needs.
