How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture works by using small needles to target trigger points throughout the body. By inserting a needle into these trigger points, a trained specialist can change the flow of transmitters, signals, and hormones throughout the body. This can be done to help someone recover from an injury or illness. Furthermore, the potential acupuncture side effects are minimal. For this reason, acupuncture is a major part of the healthcare services we provide.

What Can Acupuncture Help With?

There are numerous conditions that acupuncture can help someone manage. These include:

  • Both acute and chronic pain
  • Season allergies, such as allergic rhinitis
  • A variety of mental health conditions including depression and anxiety
  • Numerous digestive issues including dysentery, diarrhea, constipation, and more
  • Pain stemming from chemotherapy
  • Discomfort due to a variety of dental issues including gum pain, root pain, nerve pain, and cavities
  • Muscle pains and cramps
  • Inflammation from chronic medical conditions such as arthritis

Due to the versatility of acupuncture, we employ this treatment method at Larson Chiropractic and Acupuncture with regularity for the benefit of our patients.

Stress Relief: Stress relief is one of the major benefits of acupuncture. The needles are designed to target trigger points that help to alter the flow of hormones throughout the body, helping someone relax and let their stresses melt away.

Pain Relief: Acupuncture can also be used to help with pain relief. Pain signals are carried from the body to the brain by nerves. These nerves are targeted by a trained specialist, helping to provide pain relief to those who need it most.

Improved Oxygen and Circulation:  Acupuncture can also be used to improve the flow of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. The needles can be targeted to alter the flow of hormones that are used to control oxygen and nutrient flow. By increasing circulation, people can recover from injuries and illnesses more quickly.

These are only a few of the many benefits of visiting Larson Chiropractic and Acupuncture for a well-rounded, holistic approach to healthcare.
