There are multiple benefits of both chiropractic treatment and acupuncture. You may experience the best results, however, with a combined treatment of both. The two go hand in hand and complement each other. Bringing them together offers tremendous advantages.
At Doyle Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Roanoke, TX, Dr. Cody Doyle is a chiropractor and acupuncturist who has over two decades of experience. He can offer you a treatment plan customized for you that gets you on the road to recovery faster.
What treatment does a chiropractor offer?
When the spine is not in alignment, patients experience pain and inflammation. Chiropractic care is a nonsurgical, drug-free, holistic approach to helping the body heal and be healthy through manipulation of the spine. The manipulations, sometimes called adjustments, put the spine back into alignment, reducing pain and inflammation. Added benefits include improved mobility, function, and overall wellness.
Rather than masking pain with medications, chiropractic care goes to the root of the problem and fixes it.
Also, the spine communicates with the nervous system, which is responsible for the coordination and function of all the organs and muscles in your body. Therefore, a misaligned spine can produce numerous symptoms and conditions people don’t usually associate with chiropractic care.
When performed properly, spinal adjustments can help with many issues, including:
- Respiratory issues
- Weight gain
- Boosts immunity
- Improved digestion
- Increased energy
How can an acupuncturist help my pain?
Acupuncture involves the use of flexible, hair-thin needles that the acupuncturist places at particular pressure points. This produces an effect on the nervous system that decreases both chronic and acute pain. In addition, acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
Many patients experience more pain relief with acupuncture than they do with pain medication.
Acupuncture can reduce musculoskeletal pain, including the low back and neck. It can also reduce or eliminate headaches.
Other types of pain acupuncture can relieve include:
- Labor pain
- Dental pain
- Menstrual cramps
- Arthritis pain
Acupuncture can also help relieve respiratory disorders and reduce nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy.
Chiropractor and Acupuncturist in One Doctor
Since Dr. Doyle is both a chiropractor and acupuncturist, he can provide both modalities to improve your health and pain so you can heal and recover. This is good news for patients suffering from neck or back pain, as when these treatments are combined, patients improve faster.
Chiropractic care gets the structural system in alignment, and acupuncture helps control inflammation. Combined, they work together to help the body stay relaxed.
If you have ever heard the saying that one plus one equals three, the sum of spinal manipulation plus acupuncture is even better. Not only are they highly compatible, but they complement each other so patients can feel better and return to normal activities quicker.
This is because both treatments help improve the nervous system, producing the force of multiplication in pain relief, relaxation of muscles, and reduction of inflammation.
The combined treatments can also help other issues. For instance, they can help reduce pain and inflammation for joint issues both pre and post-surgery.
Additional issues combined treatment can help include:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Sinus pain
