When you think of acupuncture, you probably think of the tiny needles inserted into the skin across your body. What you probably don’t think about is the way it can help your health. Whether you believe it or not, acupuncture can help you return to a top-notch health by helping relieve neck pain, back pain, knee pain, and head pain. It can also relieve stress and improve your sleep. This is why our talented chiropractor, Dr. Wes Wooden, and Dr. Wheeler offers acupuncture at our clinic.
Acupuncture is the process of inserting very small needles into your skin at certain points of your body. This treatment is traditionally used by the Chinese to help improve the flow of energy, or qi, in the body. It is believed that disruptions in the energy flow are responsible for the pain and poor health you experience. By inserting these needles into your skin, pain endorphins are released, which are the body’s natural pain-killing endorphins. Acupuncture also affects the section of the brain that oversees serotonin, which is a brain chemical that is involved in the mood. This treatment can re-balance your energy and relieve your pain and discomfort.
