Acupuncture Q & A
What Is Acupuncture Treatment?
Acupuncture is a type of treatment that originated in China more than 3,000 years ago. Acupuncturists use extremely slim needles, placing them in key areas on the body to alleviate pain in a natural way. The needles create a balance in the body’s energy, which allows the body to return to its optimal pain-free state.
There are several types of acupuncture. In moxibustion, moxa taken from dried mugwort warms key areas and helps with smooth qi energy flow. In auricular acupuncture, points on the outer ear are stimulated for healing. In cupping therapy, suction is used to help stimulate blood flow and promote healing.
What Types of Conditions and Illnesses Can Acupuncture Help With?
Acupuncture can help with a very wide range of pain, illnesses, and conditions. These include lower back pain, headache pain, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, menstrual cramps, digestive problems, insomnia, PMS, neck pain, and much more.

What are Trigger Point Injections? What are Trigger Points?
They form when there is a tight area within a muscle that cannot relax producing a “knot.” The “knot” can irritate nerves around muscles that can cause pain that is felt in another region of the body; this is known as referred pain. Common muscle groups Trigger Points affect are the neck, shoulders, arms, and legs. Trigger Points are caused by repetitive actions, trauma (car accidents, falls etc.), poor posture, vitamin deficiencies, sleep disturbances, stress, and joint problems.
How can we help control your pain?
A Trigger Point Injection is administered by a licensed healthcare professional by inserting a small needle containing a local anesthetic (Lidocaine 1%) into the trigger point. This will help to relax the knotted muscle to provide pain relief more quickly. TPIs, in combination with physical therapy, help the patient heal. TPIs also help the doctors by loosening the muscles making it easier to adjust the patient.
