Acupuncture Q & A

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting tiny, very thin needles at strategic points within your body to better manage health conditions such as stress, anxiety, and chronic pain. It’s often used in traditional Chinese medicine to improve and rebalance your body’s energy flow. 

Western medicine uses acupuncture to stimulate muscles, nerves, connective tissue, and your body’s natural painkillers and healing ability.

What are the benefits of acupuncture?

Your provider might recommend acupuncture as part of a treatment plan if you suffer from:

  • Radiating pain along a nerve pathway
  • Muscle spasms
  • Inflammation
  • Scar tissue pain
  • Neck, low back, dental, or menstrual pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Post-operative or chemotherapy-induced pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Stress, depression, or anxiety

Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that complements your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

What should I expect during acupuncture treatment?

When you arrive at RehabOne Medical Group for acupuncture, you’re greeted by the warm, welcoming staff. You lie down on a comfortable treatment table in a quiet, relaxing room. An experienced acupuncturist uses modern, sterile, single-use disposable tiny needles. They might place 10-20 needles into your skin at strategic locations on your body.

Your practitioner manipulates the needles for a few seconds to produce therapeutic stimuli, and you lie quietly for another 15-30 minutes while the needles remain in place. After your session, you feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

Your acupuncturist might recommend a series of treatments twice weekly to help you achieve optimal results. You should notice an improvement in numerous health conditions by the fourth treatment, if not sooner. Complex medical conditions or chronic pain may take slightly longer to respond to acupuncture.

Am I a good candidate for acupuncture?

Just about anybody can benefit from acupuncture treatment, regardless of your health condition. To be sure, complete a consultation with a RehabOne Medical Group provider before treatment. 

You might not be a good candidate for acupuncture if you have a bleeding disorder, are pregnant, or have a pacemaker.
