How our acupuncture clinic can heal your pain and more
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to promote healing in countries like China, and has recently experienced a surge of popularity in the United States. The Midwest Chiropractic acupuncture clinic follows these ancient healing principles.
According to traditional Chinese belief, there are as many as 2,000 individual points on the human body that respond to acupuncture. These points allow our trained acupuncturist expert to use small needles, no wider than a hair, to painlessly stimulate the nervous system to aid in your healing and recovery.
Now no one likes the thought of needles, and I certainly wasn't overjoyed with the notion either but unlike regular needles, acupuncture needles are barely noticeable. In fact, most people who receive acupuncture therapy describe the experience as either exciting or relaxing. After all, acupuncture is a total medical protocol that focuses on correcting energy imbalances in your body. Research in the 2010 edition of Nature Neuroscience showed acupuncture influenced the activity of an amino acid called adenosine. Adenosine is activated in your skin after an injury to ease pain.
Are there any side effects of acupuncture? Sometimes there may be some minor bleeding or bruising at the site but serious complications are extremely rare and almost non-existent in the studies and literature.
So what are the major benefits of acupuncture? What can it help me with? The benefits of visiting our acupuncture office for a treatment can include:
*Chronic lower back pain relief

*Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis treatment
*Migraine or headache pain relief
*Controlling chemotherapy induced nausea
