Acupuncture has been being practiced for nearly 2500 years the simple reason being – It Works! At OMNI Chiropractic we use acupuncture to treat a wide variety of conditions and have seen spectacular results.
We emphasize 3 key benefits with every acupuncture treatment.
1. Blood Flow
Our blood carries essential nutrients, oxygen and minerals to all our muscles, joints and nerves. When an acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin, the body will pay special attention to that area. We draw blood flow to the site of insertion and therefore fresh nutrients to help nourish and restore function to those points.
2. Release of Muscle Tension
For proper use, muscles need to shorten and lengthen in a smooth uninterrupted fashion. When muscles are injured they become stuck in a chronic state of spasm, decreasing their function. When we target these muscles, the insertion of acupuncture needles will help untie muscular “knots” breaking up adhesions and scar tissue allowing muscles to return to their resting state.
3. Restore Neurological Function
Perhaps the most powerful thing acupuncture can do is target the nervous system. Painless insertion of needles into nerves throughout the body can have numerous beneficial effects in regulating the body's central and peripheral nervous system.
It is these nerves that control all aspects of our bodies including muscles, joints, organs and even the body’s response to stress. In cases where nerves have become under or over active due to injury, over use or inactivity, Acupuncture can help to stimulate or calm these nerves and return them to their resting state. The body will pay special attention to the sites of insertion and a safe natural response is generated to correct the identified problems.
Acupuncture can be extremely successful in dealing with a wide Varity of conditions including:
- Neck Pain
- Back Pain
- Shoulder Injuries: Frozen Shoulder, Strains, Bursitis, Impingements, etc.
- Tennis and Golfers Elbow
- Feelings of Numbness and/or tingling – In your hands, legs or feet
