Recovering from an injury requires the right tools and pain management strategies. At Gateway Family Chiropractic, we recognize the benefits of natural treatments and solutions for injury recovery. Our chiropractors work with an acupuncturist to provide the optimal treatments for your needs.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a type of traditional Chinese medicine. The belief associated with the treatment is that physical ailments and discomfort stems from a blockage in the flow of energy, or qi, within your body. Acupuncturists help with holistic healing by offering a variety of natural treatments and services, including acupuncture, cupping/guasha, herbal therapy, and nutritional guidance.

It works great with chiropractic care to address underlying complications with your physical health and well-being. We may use the treatment for a variety of ailments that range from muscle pain to pinched nerves to internal health. Each treatment plan depends on your situation and needs.

Advantages of the Treatment for Pain

Acupuncture encourages your body to heal at a faster rate when you have been harmed in an accident or face injuries from playing a sport. By encouraging your body to heal naturally, you improve your mobility and get back to your normal lifestyle at a reasonable time.

An acupuncturist also helps with general discomfort in your body that does not stem from an obvious injury, accident, or physical condition. Discomfort may relate to poor posture, muscle spasms or a variety of other factors. At our clinic, we evaluate your situation and develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Acupuncture is a safe and natural solution for your discomfort and health concerns. Since we only use single-use, sterile needles, you do not have a risk of infection or other complications with the treatment. We take measures to avoid any risks associated with the process by ensuring that the needles are always sterile and properly disposed of at the end. We comply with state regulations for needle disposal, so you can feel confident that you are safe when going through the procedure.

How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments you need for positive results will depend on your chief complaint and your other concerns. Some injuries or health imbalances show changes shortly after the first treatment, while other may take more visits. We will recommend a treatment plan after evaluating your needs and goals.
