Flower Mound Acupuncture for Natural Pain Relief & Wellness 75028

lewisville_acupuncture.jpgAcupuncture is a traditional healing art that originated in China. For centuries, Chinese practitioners used thin needles to stimulate the body’s life force called the “chi.” The Chinese believed that a blockage in this force can lead to pain, injury and illness. By inserting needles into specific points on the body or stimulating these points with electrical impulse and/or laser penetration, this enables a restored balance and harmony to the body.

“Chi” corresponds with electromagnetic pulses in the body’s central nervous system. By stimulating the nerves and connective tissue in the body, acupuncture helps to increase blood flow and raise endorphin levels, which naturally relieves pain. Increasing the flow of oxygenated blood is also important for helping soft tissue injuries heal. When the muscles become filled with lactic acid, these tissues are unable to properly repair themselves. Improving blood flow helps to flush out these blockages, which speeds the healing process after sports injuries and auto accident injuries.

If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis, acupuncture treatments may help manage this pain. For carpal tunnel syndrome, pressure points are found in the wrist, thumb, and hands. For arthritis sufferers, pressure points in the upper back, neck or the legs may also help provide pain relief. By stimulating these pressure points, acupuncture increases circulation, raises endorphin levels and balances the nervous system. In fact, many of our patients report that thanks to our treatments, they are no longer reliant on prescription painkillers.

Acupuncture is an important part of our wellness center’s whole body approach to injury treatment. Rather than simply addressing isolated symptoms of pain, our integrated approach both relieves the underlying causes while also promoting long-term pain relief. Our patients find that combining complementary treatments helps speed the recovery process after auto accident injuries or sports injuries.

If you are already receiving chiropractic adjustments or physiotherapy, Dr. Butler will create a custom treatment plan that integrates acupuncture with your current therapies. In most cases, Dr. Butler uses an advanced technique of stimulating acupuncture points with a micro electrical current and cold laser device, which does not require the use of needles and is much faster. The electrical impulse and laser penetrates the acupuncture point and stimulates it in a matter of seconds as opposed to using needles which require 15-30 minutes. If needles are used, we follow strict standards for hygiene and patient safety.

If you are new to acupuncture, it is natural to have questions about how this treatment works and whether it is the right choice for your injury and pain management needs. Our Flower Mound chiropractor is committed to helping every patient achieve his or her wellness goals. Contact us today!
