The Point of the Matter: Acupuncture Offers Many Health Benefits
Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been
performed throughout the Far East for more than 8,000 years. It has been shown to
trigger the release of endorphins, which are the body's natural painkillers, and it
improves the body's functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by
stimulating specific sites on the body known as acupuncture points.
At the office of Manhattan Orthopedic Spine PLLC, our knowledgeable and caring staff is committed to your health and well-being. We believe in treating the whole person by using
alternative, natural techniques that help the body heal itself.
Acupuncture is based on the TCM tenet that there is a flow of energy through channels
called meridians. When these channels become disrupted, illness and pain develop.
Acupuncture, along with herbal medicinal preparations, are used to help restore the
free flow of energy and relieve symptoms using hair-thin needles strategically inserted
at various meridian points on the body.
Because the goal of acupuncture is to promote and restore the balance of energy that
flows throughout the body, it is very good at offering pain relief for a number of
conditions including muscle spasms, back and knee pain, arthritis, certain emotional
disorders, digestive problems, and allergies.
Health and vitality can be restored through natural means and time-tested techniques
that are safe, natural, and effective. At the office of Manhattan Orthopedic Spine PLLC, we offer a full complement of acupuncture post-surgery for a healthier, stronger, and happier you. Start your journey by giving us a call today!
