If you’re suffering from chronic pain or many other health conditions, Dr. Andrea Hogan at Hogan Family Chiropractic in Frisco, TX provides acupuncture and related treatments that can help you achieve relief.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a therapy that was developed in ancient Chinese medicine. It was designed to help restore imbalances in the body’s energy flow – otherwise known as Qi. It is believed that imbalances and disruptions of the Qi are to blame for various symptoms and diseases.
Western medicine believes that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system, which helps the body heal and promote natural pain relief. In either case, it has proven to be an effective treatment method for the following conditions and more:
- Headaches and migraines
- Neck and back pain
- Digestive issues
- Cancer-related pain and conditions
How Does Acupuncture Work for Musculoskeletal Disorders?
Acupuncture utilizes very thin needles, which are inserted into targeted areas of the body. The needles stimulate tissues, muscles, and nerves.
This process increases the flow of blood and the production of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers. The increased blood flow helps to address any inflammation, tension, and irritation in the joints and muscles. It can also help strengthen areas that are weak due to a lack of use.
While it works as a solo therapy, the best results come from using acupuncture in conjunction with other forms of therapy. At Hogan Family Chiropractic in Frisco, TX, Dr. Andrea and Dr. Mike provide acupuncture in addition to the following:
- Chiropractic adjustments
- Spinal decompression therapy
- Trigger point therapy
- Soft tissue manipulation
- Electric muscle stimulation
- Therapeutic exercises
Depending on your symptoms and condition, Dr. Mike and Dr. Andrea will develop a treatment plan that utilizes some or several of these methods.
