The Personalized, Holistic Care You Deserve
Chiropractors are professionals in treating musculoskeletal (MSK) related pain. Acupuncture is one of the treatments chiropractors use to help effectively treat the area causing the patient’s pain. The treatment involves inserting very thin needles into the skin at certain pressure points in order to produce a painkilling effect known as “analgesic.”
What Can Acupuncture Treat?
Acupuncture can be extremely beneficial for a myriad of different conditions. However, the three areas that are most commonly treated include neck pain, headaches and lower back pain. How does acupuncture treat these conditions?
- Neck Pain: For chronic neck pain especially, acupuncture combined with other modalities, have been reported to have better pain reduction, greater patient satisfaction and improved mobility and strength.
- Headaches: Acupuncture is effective in treating both chronic headaches and infrequent headaches. For migraines, acupuncture can be added to a symptomatic treatment to reduce how the migraines occur.
- Lower Back Pain: Chronic lower back pain has been effectively treated with acupuncture methods over other short-term treatments. Combining acupuncture with other conventional medical therapies can relieve pain, increase muscle function and improve strength.
The other conditions patients seek acupuncture for include dental pain, labour pain, menstrual cramps and respiratory issues.
Our chiropractors at Goss Chiropractic are regulated by the College of Chiropractors of Ontario (CCO). Acupuncture treatments follow a chiropractic assessment of the patient, a diagnosis and then a treatment plan to continue treatment of the painful area. Our goal is to comprehend the underlying problem of the disease to reduce your pain, increase your mobility and live a less painful life.
