Acupuncture has been used to treat a variety of conditions, but most commonly is used for pain relief. When combined, chiropractic care and acupuncture can be complimentary in improving and maintaining overall health. In some cases, the two may be the most effective treatment method with the fastest results.
Acupuncture has been practiced for centuries and is a painless procedure using the insertion of several thin needles into the skin to target certain Meridian Points, or energy channels, on the body. This treatment is meant to influence biological energies, to improve the body's functions, and to promote a natural self-healing process. Typically, treatments take 15 minutes to an hour.
