When you think of Rickman Chiropractic, you probably think of chiropractic adjustments to ease aches and pains or normalize physical functions. But this form of care is only one side of our holistic healing and pain relief capabilities. We’re also proud to offer acupuncture to residents of Independence MO, Blue Springs, MO, and Lee’s Summit, MO. This ancient technique still packs amazing powers — and it may be just what you need.
As medical track records go, it’s hard to beat acupuncture. This form of medicine has enjoyed both success and popularity for thousands of years. Ancient practitioners in Asia believed that pain and illness were related to blockages in the flow of the body’s qi or life energy. By inserting needles at strategic points along pathways called meridians, they were able to redirect that qi flow and help restore wellness. Modern medicine continues to research acupuncture, theorizing that the needle placement affects neural clusters and stimulates the production of endorphins, neurotransmitters that relieve pain naturally.
A Safe, Effective Part of Your Holistic Care Plan
Perhaps you can see now why acupuncture makes such a natural complement to chiropractic care and other drug-free, non-invasive techniques employed by our chiropractor in Independence. Both chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture serve to normalize nerve signaling, thus improving systemic health and alleviating unpleasant symptoms. Each enhances the power of the other synergistically when combined with a comprehensive holistic care plan. Acupuncture may be prescribed to treat such diverse issues as:
- Digestive and urological problems
- Chronic neck, back or extremity pain
