Find out how acupuncture could tackle your chronic pain and help improve your quality of life.
Did you know that chronic pain actually affects more Americans than diabetes, cancer and heart disease combined? Pain can manifest from many different sources, such as injury or disease. Chronic pain can be debilitating, and even affect day-to-day activities. If your pain is getting in the way of your life but other treatments haven’t offered you the relief you need, then it’s time you consider seeing your Fort Lauderdale chiropractor, Dr. Donna Watson, for acupuncture.
How does acupuncture work?
Your Fort Lauderdale chiropractor will apply a series of thin needles to various areas of the body to help target where you experience the most pain. While the thought of needles might make some patients wary, acupuncture is virtually painless. Inserting the needles into specific regions of the body is thought to improve the flow of qi, or energy in the body. While acupuncture might not be the first treatment option for someone dealing with new pain, for those suffering from chronic or long-term pain it might be time to get acupuncture in Fort Lauderdale.
Acupuncture is known to stimulate certain areas of the body and promote self-healing, particularly in areas that are causing pain, swelling, etc. Those with back and neck pain as well as those suffering from migraines and other musculoskeletal problems can benefit from acupuncture.
How often will I need acupuncture?
This will vary based on each patient. Once your Fort Lauderdale chiropractor has studied your medical history and discussed your symptoms we will be able to design a specific treatment plan. For many patients with chronic problems, one to two treatments is recommended for several months until symptoms start to improve, after which we can lessen the frequency of your acupuncture treatments.
