Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used for over 2,000 years in Asian cultures

Acupuncture

Acupunture is considered a complete medical protocal in Asian cultures to correct imbalances of energy in the body.  From it’s beginning in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture has been used to prevent, diagnose, and even treat disease.

Acupuncture is based on the patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for good health.  Disruptions of this flow are believed to responsible for disease, pain, and dysfuntion.  Acupunture corrects the flow of energy at identifiable points close to the skin. 

The concept of the body’s “Qi” (pronounced ‘chee’) shouldn’t be considered “twilight zone” material as thought by some in the medical profession.  Your body has a natural way of reacting to feeling stressed or anxious.  Your mood, mental health, and general feelings do affect your physical health.  Acupunture aims to assist you in the same way.

Common Questions

Fear of needles is the most common concern for individuals when acupuncture is suggested.   The good news is the needles are very thin (hair-thin) when compared to a normal injection needle for medicine.  You’ll feel a little pressure as the needle is inserted and some individuals don’t even know it’s happened.

Acupuncture can be used to treat respiratory diseases, bronchopulmonary diseases, orthopedic disorders, gastrointestianal disorders, and neurological disorders.   In certain situations, individuals don’t react well to medicine and acupunture gives them a more natural way of asssiting the body.

Acupuncuture is covered by many major insurance companies.  Coverage can vary greatly depending upon the company and your individual plan selected.   Our staff is here to assist you in understanding exactly what your plan will cover.

What to Expect in Your First Treatment

American Chiropractic will take you through a complete review of your health history, discuss any medication or physician supervision you may be under.  Our goal is to fully understand the issue you have and all of the steps which may have been taken up to this point to resolve it.

You should expect to get questions which you may not think are relevant to the purpose of your visit.  The doctor may get into digestive, urinary, stress, sleeping patterns, and a number of other areas in order to establish a plan of treatment.  The focus isn’t to make you uncomfortable but to ensure any underlying issues are brought to the surface.
