Acupuncture is the procedure of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into various points on the body. This is done for therapeutic purposes as well as to relieve pain. Acupuncture can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour depending on what a provider feels is required. Studies have found that acupuncture aids with nausea and vomiting related to pregnancy, chemotherapy, and post-surgery pain. But that is not all that acupuncture can help with.
Acupuncture can be a highly effective form of treatment for a large variety of ailments. Acupuncture is a great way to deal with many different forms of pain and is a very safe process when administered by a qualified acupuncturist like the ones at Valley Chiropractic.
