Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. With the insertion of a tiny sterile needle, the nervous system is stimulated to encourage natural healing, reduce & relieve pain via tension/trigger points. The overall goal of acupuncture is balance or homeostasis in the body.
The needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points located along pathways or 'meridians' at the skin's surface. These pathways or 'channels' are traditionally where the body houses energy and relieving tension or 'stagnation' along these channel helps healing and overall neuromusculoskeletal health.
Chiropractors are part of a mainstream health care discipline that use spinal adjustments and manual techniques as the primary methods of helping your body heal. Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Using a variety of diagnostic methods, including x-rays & diagnostic ultrasound, to discover the state of your musculoskeletal system, Chiropractors provide care for patients of all ages with a range of acute and chronic conditions.
