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. Many people see acupuncture as an "alternative medicine" – something to try when nothing else has worked.
At Advanced Orthopedics & Physical Therapy in Cleveland and Euclid, Ohio, we see acupuncture in a different light. We believe that, combined with other types of treatment such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, or massage therapy, acupuncture can complement and magnify your results.
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.
The certified acupuncturists at Advanced Orthopedics & Physical Therapy are highly skilled and deliver expert care when you need it most. For acupuncture in Cleveland or Euclid, Ohio, call (216) 378-9390 or request an appointment online.
