Are you frustrated with traditional treatments for auto accident injuries and sport injuries? Then you may benefit from alternative pain management treatments including acupuncture. Here at Butler Chiropractic, our Flower Mound chiropractor Dr. Randy Butler frequently integrates acupuncture treatments with chiropractic care and physiotherapy. These treatments are an all-natural way to manage pain and promote internal healing, while reducing the risk for future injury.
Acupuncture 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.
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 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!
