Do you have migraines, muscle pain, or feeling the physical burdens of chemotherapy? Do you suffer from chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome or low back pain from sitting at a desk all day? Acupuncture can help relieve pain and stimulate your body to help heal itself and help you feel energized, refreshed, and pain-free. Cape Fear Chiropractic’s acupuncture services can help you feel good again!
Acupuncture works by stimulating different anatomical locations on or in the skin. Traditional Chinese acupuncture theory is based on the energy flow of the body and the ability to correct any imbalances in that flow. The modern belief is that disruptions in this neurological signaling can cause disfunctions in the human body. Acupuncture is nearly painless and is performed using a series of thin, solid needles, which are manipulated manually, or through electrical stimulation to help redirect and restore the body’s natural energy flow.
Conditions that Benefit from Acupuncture
The use of acupuncture has become widely accepted across the United States and there are a number of conditions that can directly benefit from its use. At Cape Fear Chiropractic, we perform a complete evaluation to determine if acupuncture is a viable treatment to reduce the adverse effects of a number of medical conditions. Acupuncture has been determined to help relieve post-operative and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, reduce the effects of strokes and lessen the pain of headaches and menstrual cramps, and aid in addiction recovery. Acupuncture has also been effective in decreasing pain caused by fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, low back pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Acupuncture has also been proven to help alleviate nausea and fatigue caused by chemotherapy.
Adding acupuncture to your chiropractic treatment has been found to enhance the benefits of other procedures, such as your adjustments, and help improve your overall quality of life and mental health.
Dr. Chauvin is a staff member at The Wilmington Treatment Center providing an acupuncture detoxification protocol for those suffering from substance use disorder and recovering from addiction. It is most useful in the first phases of recovery.
