Free Yourself With Acupuncture
How much does acupuncture cost?
How many treatments of acupuncture do I need? Some conditions can be improved with one visit while others can take several years. Predicting the number of treatments one needs depends on the nature of the concern. Different tissues and systems heal at different rates. The length of time one has had the concern and other complicating factors can play a role. That stated, on your initial visit we will set up a treatment plan so you have a better idea of how often you will be coming in and what results to expect.
Can acupuncture really cure?
If, by “cure,” we mean ameliorate symptoms so that they do not return, then YES. For the majority of patients, this is the goal and the expected result. Acupuncture is not a band-aid. It does not have the reputation for offering only short-term benefits. We are not doing our job if benefits do not outlast the treatment cycle.
How bad does acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture does not hurt like an injection. Even though they are made of the same material, acupuncture needles are much smaller than hypodermic needles. They are solid, not hollow. Finally, with an experienced acupuncture specialist, who can insert well over 100 needles per day in the clinic, discomfort is minimized. Most patients find the experience relaxing and rejuvenating.
Is needling the same as acupuncture?
In short, yes. These terms are synonymous. A common misconception is that “dry needling” is different from acupuncture. It is not. The same needles are used, the same techniques are used and the same approach is used by Sports Medicine Acupuncturists. The difference is training. Acupuncturists have 3-4 years of full-time, rigorous education then specialize in acupuncture clinically. Dry Needling providers are normally chiropractors or physical therapists with 100 hours of training or less and only practice needling as an adjunct to their own medicines.
Does acupuncture hurt the next day?
Acupuncture normally does not cause discomfort after your visits. There can occasionally be soreness for a couple of hours similar to post-workout muscle soreness but that is relatively rare and can be minimized on future visits.
