At Live Well Chiropractic in Layton, UT, we are proud to offer exceptional acupuncture services for all clients. Acupuncture is a unique therapeutic service that can offer significant pain relief as well as mental and emotional benefits. While it is a very old medical technique, it is still one that many people are unfamiliar with and, as such, many have a lot of questions about acupuncture and how it works. Following are the answers to several questions we frequently receive about acupuncture.
Can anyone undergo acupuncture treatment?
Yes! Acupuncture treatment is available for everyone. There are no age restrictions on acupuncture, nor are there any sex or similar conditions that would prevent someone from both getting acupuncture and finding success in it. Thus, some great things to keep in mind here are:
- Both those who are very young as well as senior citizens can undergo acupuncture treatment
- Pregnant women often find acupuncture highly effective and can continue their care post-birth
What types of conditions are treated by acupuncture?
Acupuncture can be used to treat all types of conditions. Studies as well as personal experiences have found that this unique type of treatment is effective for mental and physical conditions, as well as improving emotional wellness. For physical conditions, acupuncture can treat chronic and acute, as well as mild and severe types of pain.
Is acupuncture safe?
Absolutely! Acupuncture is a medical treatment that has been used for at least 2,500 years with not one recorded death or significant injury related to a treatment performed by a trained and licensed practitioner. Our acupuncture professionals know the exact location, angle, and depth to insert said needles for maximum benefits without physical risks.
How often do I need acupuncture for pain relief?
Most people seek out acupuncture for pain relief and want to know how many sessions they will need. The answer to this will vary depending on the severity of the pain and its underlying cause. Your acupuncture treatment will begin with a consultation in which our chiropractor team will look at your medical history and consider a detailed evaluation of your condition. Most acupuncture treatments will then begin as a weekly session that will continue less frequently until you are free of painful symptoms.
