Originated in China, acupuncture is among the oldest healing systems in the world. Its main goal is to restore your body's balance and improve your overall health.
Acupuncture treatments involve the insertion of tiny needles just below the skin, placed in very specific points to generate energies and connections throughout the body. The energies produced activate responses in your body’s immune, circulatory, nervous, and endocrine systems, which help the body heal internally.
There is minimal risk of injury and virtually no side effects when administered properly. The needles are sterile, regulated by the FDA and used only once. The acupuncturists who work at Advanced Orthopedics & Physical Therapy are licensed by the state of Ohio and certified by a national board.
For most patients, acupuncture is a painless, comforting, and restorative form of therapy. Acupuncture should never be painful, but you may have some sensation that is indicative of a therapeutic response.
When dry needling is applied to an affected muscle or trigger point, it can decrease muscle tightness, increase blood flow and reduce pain. Patients often report immediate relief. The needles remain in your muscle for a short period of time.
Alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction, suction creates a negative pressure environment allowing for myofascial decompression as the skin is drawn into the cups. The suction facilitates healing with blood flow, as well as the flow of “qi” in the body. Massage therapy uses direct pressure to release tension, cupping uses negative pressure to lift the muscle fibers and increase blood flow to the area. We do also offer Massage therapy.
