Acupuncture is an integrative medicine that not too many patients we see are aware of.
However, the benefits are abundant and this treatment should be considered.
Read on to learn how acupuncture can help you!
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a healing technique involving the use of needles to relieve pain and reduce symptoms of other ailments.
This treatment originated in traditional Chinese medicine over 3,000 years ago.
It has been used in Western medicine for over 20 years and has been deemed a very effective healing treatment.
What Conditions Does Acupuncture Treat?
This treatment is most commonly used to treat pain.
However, you may also benefit from acupuncture if you are experiencing:
- Postoperative Pain
- Tennis Elbow
If you are experiencing any of these, Dr. Castle can talk you through the benefits of this treatment.
How Is An Acupuncture Treatment Performed?
To begin treatment, the acupuncturist will begin with an examination of the patient.
After the examination, a plan is put together to ensure the needles are placed in the best places to relieve your pain or other condition.
From there, you will lie down on a table while the treatment begins.
Small needles will be placed in strategic areas of your body, sometimes called acupoints.
Once these acupoints are located and the needles are placed, they will remain for up to 30 minutes.
Little to no discomfort is felt during the entire treatment.
Once the needles are removed patients often feel very relaxed.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
This is different for every patient.
However, many patients experience a great amount of relief after just one treatment!
