Acupuncture services are provided by the Chiropractors, who predominantly use it to treat musculo-skeletal conditions such as muscle strains, ligament sprains, neuro-muscular spasms, and other such conditions. Acupuncture is the insertion of thin sterilized needles that causes a release of our own bodies' natural pain killer, "endorphins", thereby having a pain relieving effect. Acupuncture also helps to decrease muscle spasms when inserted directly into the affected area. Acupuncture can be the first choice of treatment especially if an area is very acute and immobile. The needles help us to access areas that may be too painful to be stretched or manipulated until a future treatment. You can discuss this with your Chiropractor and together, you can make the appropriate choice for you.
