INTRODUCTION TO MEDICAL ACUPUNCTURE
We are fortunate at Cedar Tree Chiropractic in Burton-on-Trent & Derby to have chiropractors trained in medical acupuncture, as not all chiropractors can perform this treatment. Further study and qualifications mean that our practitioners can offer this exciting, effective treatment.
Medical acupuncture is a modern adaptation of traditional Chinese acupuncture. Rather than following the traditional body meridians (energy channels), medical acupuncture focuses specifically on areas of muscular tension.
Extremely fine needles are inserted gently into areas of the body to reduce inflammation and encourage the body's natural ability to heal.
Medical acupuncture can be used alone, or in conjunction with adjustments depending on your specific condition.
