We are thrilled to announce the addition of yet another service at Balance Chiropractic & Wellness Centre!
Acupuncture can be utilised in the treatment of a variety of different injuries and is a beneficial addition to Athletic Therapy treatment sessions assisting in recovery and healing. Acupuncture is helpful in reducing swelling, increasing blood flow and providing pain relief to allow greater participation in range of motion exercises. Acupuncture is known for treating injuries such as whiplash from car accidents, frozen shoulder, acute injuries, tendonitis and chronic injuries.
Acupuncture therapy uses very thin needles to stimulate the body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals known as endorphins. The endorphins assist in the reduction of pain as well as promote healing and relaxation of the body. Acupuncture will also stimulate nerve routes that, when activated, interfere with pain signals sent to the brain.
Some patients will feel relief right away, while others may notice improvements within a few hours or the next day. Other patients may need up to 5 sessions to determine whether acupuncture is helpful or not.
A typical session of acupuncture from our Athletic Therapist will include assessment, modalities, acupuncture, manual therapy and exercise prescription.
