Acupuncture is one of the main forms of traditional Chinese Medicine. This ancient Chinese medical treatment is used to decrease pain, reduce swelling and increase blood circulation in order to enhance the healing process. Certified acupuncturists at Victory Therapy use acupuncture as part of your complete customized treatment plan.
Acupuncture treatments involve the use of sharp, ultra-thin needles inserted in the body at very specific acupuncture points. These specific points are areas of acute electrical sensitivity, allowing stimulation of nerves that tell the brain to release endorphins. Released endorphins help to manage the pain in that area. Only sterile, disposable acupuncture needles are used.
While acupuncture can be used for a variety of illnesses, it is most commonly used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain, muscle inflammation/tenderness, muscle spasms, and headaches.
