Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine used to alleviate pain and promote overall health. Acupuncture typically uses needles placed along invisible meridians that run throughout the body. At Omnis Chiropractic Associates, we combine acupuncture with microcurrent therapy: a form of treatment used for patients with soft tissue injuries and chronic pain, where electrodes are placed on the skin over affected tissue. The microcurrents are very small, so you do not feel anything while the treatment is in progress.
Each meridian point has a specific meaning and can unblock and repair meridians and channels with vital energy or chi. Through the stimulation of the meridians, we are able to restore balance and ergo health to the patient.
Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of health problems, such as:
- Persistent lower back pain
- Chronic tension-type headaches and migraines
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Postoperative pain
- Depression and anxiety
Acupuncture and microcurrent therapy takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes, and focuses as much on the prevention of illness as on the treatment.
