Are you interested in finding out how acupuncture could improve your health?

Finding the right way to treat certain symptoms or conditions can be challenging. You may find yourself going back to the doctor’s office Acupuncturetime and time again trying different medications and treatment options and yet still not seeing the results you had hoped; however, there are alternative treatments out there that can ease symptoms when other treatment options don’t. Our Lake Wales, FL, chiropractor, Dr. Anthony Faro, is here to tell you more about acupuncture and the many ways it can improve someone’s health and quality of life.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is based on traditional Chinese medicine and providing healing and therapeutic benefits for people of all ages. By placing small acupuncture needles into certain acupuncture points of the body we can treat a variety of complaints and symptoms and also stimulate the body’s natural healing response. In some cases, heat or electrical stimulation may also be used on these points to enhance the results.

What issues can be treated with acupuncture?

There are a variety of health problems and symptoms that can be improved through this alternative therapy. You may benefit from getting acupuncture in Lake Wales if you are dealing with any of these issues:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Back or neck pain
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Facial pain
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Postoperative pain
  • Arthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Sciatica

Acupuncture offers a non-drug and non-invasive way to improve certain systems within the body (e.g. endocrine; cardiovascular; digestive) while also reducing pain and stiffness and improving digestion, sleep and overall quality of life and wellbeing.

How often should I get acupuncture?

How many acupuncture sessions you receive from our chiropractic specialist in Lake Wales will depend on the type of symptoms or health problems you are facing. For example, those with chronic conditions will require maintenance acupuncture sessions about one or two times a month for maintenance while those with temporary symptoms and conditions may only need to come in a couple times a week.
