Chiropractic Wellington

Acupuncture has been practiced in China for more than 4,000 years now but only became popular in America in the 1970s to alleviate pain from migraines, back pain, and ankle sprains.

A lot of patients go to hospitals for treatment of pain, but unfortunately, it is not very well-treated and patients do not get sufficient pain relief.

It has also been proven that some people cannot tolerate pain relief drugs. Some of these patients experience severe side effects like nausea and constipation.

On the other hand, people who have some form of pain and tried acupuncture experience relief from pain in a very short period of time. Acupuncture is a natural, safe, and effective way to help relieve pain and can be combined with conventional drugs without any side effects.

Research has proven that acupuncture has an effect on the brain which changes certain neural structures and deactivates areas in the brain associated with processing pain.

Our bodies have a system of meridians or pathways where energy or “chi” flows through the body. An acupuncture point is an area where energy or “chi” has accumulated or stuck. When energy piles up behind any point, this creates a dam-like effect and causes pain, spasms, and blockages. An acupuncture can help relieve this pain by applying a sterile needle to the acupuncture point and release the blockage, thus allowing the energy to flow freely, releasing the pain or spasm.

Dr. Dresner is a Wellington Chiropractic Physician certified in acupuncture. Acupuncture commonly treat pain caused by migraines, headaches, lower back pain, neck pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, planter fasciitis, ulcers, menstrual cramps, constipation, allergies and irritable bowel syndrome.

Acupuncture treatment for pain relief may last for several weeks. The frequency of the treatment will depend in the severity of the pain. Dr. Dresner may recommend a combination of nutritional supplements, homeopathic remedies, massages, and chiropractic adjustments to speed up the healing and pain relief.

Patients will experience acupuncture differently, but will feel no or very little pain as the needles are being inserted. Some patients report increase of energy and a general feeling of relaxation after treatment. Soreness and pain during treatment may be caused by movement of the patient or improper needle placement.

If you are living in Wellington or Loxahatchee, you can consult with Dr. Dresner for acupuncture treatment.
