Chiropractic care is the diagnosis and treatment of pain and disease in the body via an all-natural, hands-on approach. A licensed Doctor of Chiropractic examines you thoroughly to identify the underlying cause of your symptoms. Once a proper diagnosis has been made, the doctor then provides treatment using chiropractic adjustments and other techniques. Adjustments consist of manipulating a joint to facilitate a gas exchange and pressure release (that's the audible crack you hear). This biomechanical correction allows for the proper realignment and healing of joints as well as surrounding nerves, blood vessels and lymphatic pathways, etc. View WellSpace chiropractor.
Acupuncture is the use of very fine needles (about as thick as a few strands of hair) to activate your body's healing ability at specific points along pathways where your body's energy travels. When the needles are applied, you may feel nothing at all. Sometimes you may notice a slight pinch or, more commonly, a heaviness or distending sensation. This is your body recognizing and responding to the stimulation. It is a good response, and very similar to when your massage therapist finds those sore muscles that really need to be worked out. Your acupuncturist may employ other techniques to assist your body, such as scraping, cupping, and moxabustion. View WellSpace acupuncturists.
