Acupuncture performed on a woman's back

Acupuncture is an ancient medicine that has proven highly effective for treatment of many illnesses and maladies. An acupuncturist uses acupressure points to provide relief. This treatment comes from the East, originating in Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and China more than 2,000 years ago. Today, it is becoming more common and utilized all over the world very effectively.

Acupuncture consists of using an extremely thin, sterile needle on specific acupressure points. Needles are left in place for 20-40 minutes. They may be rotated by the acupuncturist for maximum effectiveness. Acupuncture can be used to deal with:

  • neck and back pain
  • substance addiction
  • obesity
  • nausea
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • digestive issues
  • joint pain
  • headaches and migraines
  • insomnia
  • arthritis
  • menopause and PMS
  • fibromyalgia
  • allergies and asthma
  • post-traumatic pain

Along with back pain, acupuncture can be highly effective for weight loss, as well. These numerous benefits can help you feel better more quickly with acupuncture treatment.

Acupuncture Procedure and Side Effects


What to expect when coming in for treatement

Acupuncture is performed with a sterile, hair-thin, flexible metal needle on carefully selected acupressure points. Patients will feel a brief pricking sensation which is sometimes followed by numbness, heat, aching, or tingling. Needles are usually left for 20 – 40 minutes and may be rotated by the acupuncturist to increase efficacy. Side effects of acupuncture are usually minor and brief, but can include light-headedness, slight bleeding, or mild bruising where needles were inserted.

Acupuncture for Back Pain


Pain treatment plans at Wolke can often include acupuncture

Back pain is one of the top reasons why people seek acupuncture – and luckily, acupuncture for back pain has been proven to be effective in multiple studies.

  • A 2012 study showed that patients receiving acupuncture for back pain had more positive results than patients who received no acupuncture and than patients who received an acupuncture placebo
  • A 2010 study found that acupuncture relieved low back pain immediately after treatment, but not always for a long time
  • The American Pain Society and the American College of Physicians both recommend acupuncture for back pain as a non-drug solution that physicians should consider for patients with chronic low back pain

Infertility and Cupping Chiropractic Therapy


Acupuncture can also be used to treat infertility

Many couples who have had difficulty conceiving a child have turned to all kinds of different therapies in order to try and break through the barriers and become pregnant. It’s not generally known, but chiropractic treatment can have a huge impact on conception, and the reasons for this are actually quite logical. You can receive infertility chiropractic treatment in North Haledon, NJ at the Wolke Chiropractic & Rehabilitation center, and significantly improve your chances of becoming pregnant. This is especially true if the reason for your infertility issues have been caused by any kind of disruption in the nervous system.

Spinal subluxations


Spinal misalignment can affect fertility

If you’ve had any type of spinal misalignment, even from events which occurred during your childhood, it’s entirely possible that the subluxation put undue pressure on a nerve or group of nerves in your body. When that happens, it causes signals to be disrupted between the brain and the area receiving the signals. That could definitely interfere with your body’s normal operation, and it could cause you to have difficulty getting pregnant. Once those spinal misalignment are corrected, the pressure on the nerves will be relieved, and your body can once again perform normally. In quite a few cases, infertile women who have had spinal alignments have become pregnant within a month or so of treatment.

Chiropractic cupping


The benefits and history of cupping

Like acupuncture and chiropractic treatment, the art of cupping extends far back into history. While science may be undecided about the practice, there are numerous testimonials from patients who are positive that they have been helped in their efforts to conceive after undergoing cupping treatments with their chiropractor. The cupping process itself involves placing plastic cups upside down on your skin, and creating a vacuum in that area. This creates suction and delivers some or all of the following benefits:

  • increased blood flow in the area of application
  • deep tissue massage
  • lessening of pain in the area being treated
  • lowers the level of inflammation
  • creates a relaxed feeling with a greater sense of well-being.

If inefficient blood circulation has been a contributing factor to your inability to get pregnant, this therapy can relieve the logjam and help you to conceive. Egyptians used this therapy at least as far back as 1550 B.C., and it has been used continuously since then by many other civilizations and societies. While their medical practices may not have been as enlightened as our modern medicine, there has surely been some demonstrable benefit to using cupping to achieve the benefits stated.
