West Side Chiropractic
Acupuncture is a holistic approach in effectively treating both acute and chronic conditions that cater to patients of all ages. Moreover, it not only relieves pain but also actively enhances overall body functioning, promotes relaxation, rejuvenation, and supports ongoing health.
Fundamentally, this time-honored health practice that effectively addresses current pain and bodily dysfunction, originating in ancient Chinese medicine, derives its discovery of an intricate energy network just beneath the skin’s surface. This network, consisting of over 1,000 “Acupoints” acts as communication channels between the body’s exterior and its internal organs and systems, including circulation, nerves, muscles, digestion, and more.
When this vital energy encounters blockages or weaknesses, it can disrupt the body’s harmony, potentially resulting in pain and symptoms. Restoration of balance and harmony is achieved by actively stimulating specific “Acupoints”. This involves the gentle insertion of needles at various skin locations, this activating the body’s innate healing potential.
At West Side Chiropractic, your First Acupuncture Visit involves a comprehensive history and examination form. The history and examination form will need to be completed BEFORE your Initial appointment so Dr.Jessica can analyze the information and pinpoint the areas of concern to create a personalized treatment plan based off the information given. Dr.Jessica will review your personalized treatment plan at your First Acupuncture Appointment.
Before your Acupuncture Session, it’s crucial to understand that the needles used differ significantly from those in a hospital setting. Acupuncture, as described by most patients, is a serene and calming experience, often barely noticeable.
After the sterile needles are positioned, patients typically relax for 30-45 minutes as the treatment unfolds. The effects of treatment can vary based on the condition’s severity. Some experience immediate relief, while others notice changing within two days. The duration of relief varies, lasting from hours to weeks, depending on the individual and the number of visits. The number of treatments required also varies based on the individual and the condition of the patient being treated.
There are multiple conditions that Acupuncture has been effective in treating. The list below includes the most commonly treated conditions.
