At Align Chiropractic & Sports Medicine, Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force, known as chi or qi (Chee), believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers.

At Align Chiropractic & Sports Medicine, Our practitioners utilize there own unique techniques and styles, often blending aspects of Eastern and Western approaches to help patients reach maximum improvements in the shortest amount of time.
