Acupuncture is the treatment of pain with thin, solid, metallic needles which are then activated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner's hands. Most people report feeling no to minimal pain as the needle is inserted. The needle is inserted to a point that produces a sensation of the condition being treated. Some people report acupuncture makes them feel energetic while others say they feel relaxed.
National Institutes of Health (NIH) studies have shown that acupuncture is an effective treatment alone or in combination with Chiropractic for treatment of many sources of pain including but not limited to:
- Tennis elbow
- Myofascial pain
- Low back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
