Benefits of Combining Chiropractic Care and Acupuncture
Chiropractic care and acupuncture are both effective methods for treating pain and various conditions. When they are combined, they can provide even greater results. Learn more about how using acupuncture in conjunction with chiropractic methods at Peterson Chiropractic can help you heal, below.
How Acupuncture Works
Acupuncture is a technique in which very thin needles are inserted into areas of the body that are in pain or connected with various conditions. This process helps in several ways, including breaking up tension and drawing blood and healing nutrients to the target area.
How Chiropractic Care Works
Chiropractic methods are utilized to correct problems in the hard tissues of the body, many of which impact the body's soft tissues. Among other things, these methods are very beneficial in ensuring proper alignment and decompressing nerves and muscles.
Power of Combining These Forces for Pain Management
Both chiropractic care and acupuncture pave the way for greater results with the other. As tension is relieved through acupuncture, muscles and other soft tissues do not bind as tightly to the hard tissues. This means that any adjustments and manipulations can be more effective, as there isn’t so much interference.
As the hard tissues are realigned, they take unnecessary pressure off of the soft tissues. Without this pressure, the spine can more easily stay properly aligned, which helps keep tension and inflammation at bay.
Any additional acupuncture treatments can then address issues that might not be obvious at first. And any additional adjustments or decompression therapy can do the same. Overall, the combination can produce very comprehensive results.
