What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a type of traditional Chinese medicine created to treat pain and promote overall health. The treatment consists of inserting thin needles into the skin at strategic points around the body. These points stimulate and balance chi, an energy current that runs through the body. It flows using pathways also known as meridians. The needles are inserted into specific points in these pathways to stimulate muscles, nerves, and connective tissue. Langston Chiropractic provides treatment for back, neck, and hand pain and sciatica.
What you can expect from Acupuncture
Your practitioner of acupuncture, or acupuncturist, will ask you for a history of the issue and to describe the location of your pain or goal for treatment. They may also examine your face and tongue and collect your pulse, checking its strength. The history and exam allow your practitioner to determine the type of treatment most effective for your needs.
A session can take 60 minutes, though it can also be shorter depending on your complaint. Your acupuncturist will develop a treatment plan to help manage your pain or stress. The procedure consists of your practitioner inserting the skinny treatment needles. These may be placed away from the area of your pain. These needles will stay in place for 10 to 15 minutes while you relax and lie still. Then your practitioner will remove the needles. Typically, there is no discomfort during removal.
Acupuncture has few side effects.
