ACUPUNCTURE IN MARKHAM

DC Chiropractic Provides Best Acupuncture Services in Markham

Did you know that there are multiple types of acupuncture? It is important that you understand the differences before you decide to book yourself in for an appointment.

Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture therapy can be done from a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) approach or a contemporary medical approach.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture
TCM involves correcting disharmony in the body and has vast applications. This type of acupuncture is often used for hormone regulation, fertility, and other pregnancy concerns, stress, insomnia, acne, neuropathy, digestive issues, and difficulties with respiration.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture is considered a form of alternative medicine. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical treatment that involves inserting acupuncture needles into the body to correct and cure certain ailments.

Why Try Acupuncture?

Acupuncture improves blood circulation, relieves pain, reduces stress, stimulates key points in a person’s acupuncture meridians and balances energy by stimulating these points that are specifically linked to particular organs or body parts.

Acupuncture stimulates these specific points via needles being inserted at very precise points on the skin which correspond with the location of the particular ailment. In addition, there are also non-insertion techniques such as massage techniques where acupuncture practitioners use their fingertips instead of acupuncture needles for stimulation.

The benefits of acupuncture include relief from chronic pain, muscle tension, and stress. Acupuncture can also be used to treat a variety of disorders like back pain, arthritis, insomnia, anxiety and much more!

How Acupuncture Works

At DC Chiropractic, we provide acupuncture in Markham, and our practitioners have the expertise to locate acupuncture points and acupuncture meridians that are pivotal to this form of treatment. Sometimes information about these acupuncture points are gathered through issues which patients may experience such as headaches, sinus congestion and ear infections. Other times, acupuncture diagnostics involve analyzing the pulse for what is referred to as a “pulse diagnosis”. This is done by feeling the patient’s radial artery by placing their two fingers on their wrist until they get to feel a pulse. This pulse reading will let our practitioners know if there are any irregularities in circulation with respect to the acupuncture points.

The acupuncture practitioner will then proceed to mark these acupuncture points with acupuncture markers. These acupuncture markers indicate where the needles are to be inserted.

You should not get acupuncture done if you are on anticoagulant medications, as acupuncture can increase your chances of bleeding. Also, acupuncture can sometimes not be recommended if you have a severe illness such as cancer or autoimmune disease.

When the acupuncture needle punctures through the skin, it stimulates a trigger point and releases endorphins which are the body’s natural painkillers and antidepressant hormones. Thus acupuncture benefits patients by relieving stress, lowering blood pressure levels, improving mood and increasing circulation in patients who regularly undergo acupuncture treatments.

In choosing to undergo acupuncture treatment at DC Chiropractic Clinic in Markham, we want all our patients to come out better than when they entered. We know that acupuncture has a wide variety of benefits such as providing relief from chronic pain, back pain, stress and other ailments.

It is important to note that acupuncture is not a be-all, end-all to all your health problems that you may have but acupuncture has been known to help people with several different health conditions and injuries.

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture, often called contemporary medical acupuncture, is used for musculoskeletal pain and/or sports rehabilitation. This technique involves the application of a stimulation unit to the acupuncture needles to improve blood flow to the injured area, decrease muscle pain and tightness, and help with lymphatic drainage.

Contemporary medical acupuncture refers to acupuncture practice that is consistent with the current acupuncture in Markham standards set forth by organizations such as the World Health Organization and the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.

Modern acupuncture treatment can also help patients manage their pain, reduce anxiety and increase feelings of relaxation. Modern acupuncture treatment differs from traditional acupuncture because the modern acupuncture needles are shorter and thicker with the goal of stimulating acupuncture points without as many acupuncture side effects.

Acupuncture is most effective when performed by a licensed acupuncturist who has experience in acupuncture for pain management. It’s important to choose acupuncture that uses sterile acupuncture needles to minimize the risk of infection or possible transmission of diseases from acupuncture treatments.

See What Our Patients Have to Say About Us

I went to see Daniel for a chronic wrist injury to my dominant hand. I am so glad he decided to open up a practice in Markham. Through a combination of massage, acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, rehab exercises, and a wonderfully caring and attentive manner, he restored functionality, erased pain, and returned me to a fully-functioning state. I am delighted with the results. I highly recommend him if you’re looking to feel well. You are in great hands with Dr. Corallo.
