We’ve been open a couple of months now at Back and Body Springfield and have already helped many patients get out of pain and back to doing what they want to do. We have many different treatment options available such as chiropractic care, physical therapy, cold laser therapy and more, but we are pleased to announce a new treatment option here at Back and Body, and that is acupuncture.
We will be making acupuncture available as a treatment on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays here in Springfield.
So what is acupuncture and what can it do for you?
Firstly, acupuncture stems from the ancient Chinese practice and deals with placing thin needles a strategic points within the body at varying depths. These needles are supposed to stimulate nerves, increase blood flow and help to reduce pain and increase wellbeing.
It is used for many different problems and pain points in the body, including:
- Low back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- and more.
While the practice of acupuncture has helped many millions of patients throughout history, studies are still taking place to fully understand how and why it actually works.
There are other areas that acupuncture can help in. According to WHO (World Health Organization) in 2003, the following symptoms have also been helped through the practice of acupuncture:
- Blood pressure
- Period pains
- Gastric conditions
- Induced labor
- and more.
Even though it is still not fully understood, there have been clear benefits for many people who have tried acupuncture. Like many treatments, you have to find the one that works for you, and acupuncture could just be it. Why not try it yourself if you are suffering pain or discomfort? You can easily make a booking through our online appointment system or through our app (link below).
