Chiropractic Care with Acupuncture in Culver City
Acupuncture treatment is both a therapeutic and scientifically proven way of managing pain by stimulating sensory nerves under the skin. Having said that, Acupuncture services are most commonly used as a complementary treatment rather than a standalone resource; being used in addition to more traditional methods of pain relief administered by medical professionals. As a dedicated team of physiotherapists, the most common use of acupuncture in our own line of work is for musculoskeletal conditions and pain management.
One of the most successful uses of acupuncture is as a response to chronic pain in the neck and back, either caused by sports injuries or other lifestyle choices such as prolonged sitting as part of an office job. The needles used in Acupuncture are inserted into what we call ‘acupuncture points, selected based on your condition and inserted to the appropriate depth depending on your pain level. Once inserted, these needles can be left for up to 30 minutes.
Today many conditions are managed by acupuncture treatment and are widely acknowledged all over the world, with the release of muscle tension and endorphins providing the body with a sense of well-being that provides a positive frame of mind in the face of any medical condition.
