Medical Acupuncture

The first use of medical acupuncture can be traced back thousands of years to China.  Medical acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific areas of the body, depending on the patient’s condition.  The needles are used to stimulate nerve endings and send feedback signals to the brain which can result in pain relief, muscle relaxation, immune responses and rebalancing of the nervous system.  Medical acupuncture is an effective and simple treatment approach that is pain-free and based on current concepts of neurophysiology,  neuroanatomy, and pathophysiology.   Medical acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions and can be incorporated into your chiropractic treatment or used as a stand alone treatment.

  • For those who’ve never tried acupuncture Ill admit I was just like you only a few short months ago. I have had sciatica pain and fibromyalgia for 3 years and was finally willing to try other things because physio was not helping me any more. Since I started acupuncture I am getting deep sleeps at night and I feel rested when I wake up. My pain levels are about half of what they were when I first came in. All the skeptics out there check acupuncture out! Dr. Ryan will explain it all to you anyway so u will feel 10 times less nervous. It actually is PAIN FREE by the way… I had built it up in my head to be painful!
