Are you looking for acupuncture in Gilbert AZ? Can you imagine how effective a health care discipline must be to stand the test of time for hundreds of generations? With a large portion of the media and research focusing their attention on the newest surgeries and medications, valuable and essential forms of health care are being forgotten. With acupuncture being practiced as a medical system for over 2400 years, its safety and effectiveness has been proven time and time again. While acupuncture alone has been shown to be the best line of treatment for many conditions, it can also be incorporated into various treatment plans to increase results and decrease treatment time. A Plus Chiropractic Care would like to use this short article to provide you with some basic information about acupuncture and to see if you could be one of the millions of people to benefit from its application.
With all the toxins present in our various environments, it is important that our bodies are well suited to interact and deal with each challenge that we face. While traditional and western explanations of acupuncture vary, each fundamentally deals with acclimating our body to our surroundings. After thousands of years of research, various points across the body have been located that have a significant impact on our bodies overall physiology. Typically, depending on the desired end result, fine needles are meticulously positioned at these points to stimulate various aspects of our hormonal, immune, and endocrine systems. Once these systems have been stimulated, a number of neurotransmitters, natural pain killers, and hormones are released. Patients at our A Plus Chiropractic Care have described the following effects following acupuncture treatments:
The first thing to understand prior to an acupuncture session is that the needles used are much different than those that you would typically encounter at a hospital. In fact, most patients describe their acupuncture treatment as a calm and relaxing experience. In fact, some patients report feeling little to nothing at all.
On your first visit to our clinic in Gilbert AZ, we will begin by performing a thorough history and examination. After the results are analyzed, we will identify the problematic areas and develop a individualized treatment plan. After the sterile needles are positioned, patients typically rest for 30-45 minutes as the treatment take its course. Depending on the individual case, massage, moist heat, or cold packs may be combined with the therapy. The total visit typically lasts around an hour.
As with many conditions, the treatment effect can vary depending on the severity of the problem. Many patients report feeling immediate relief, while others describe noticing changes up to two days following the therapy. Depending on the patient and the number of visits, relief may last anywhere from a few hours to several weeks. It will be important to monitor this so that your treatment schedule can be altered appropriately.
While side effects are minimal, some patients have reported minor bouts of nausea, bruising, muscle pain, and difficulty sleeping following their initial treatment. If this occurs don’t be alarmed and notify your treating health care professional prior to your next visit.
