At Acupuncture Atlanta we have coupled Chiropractic joint manipulation and mobilization techniques with Chinese Medicine and developed an approach, which can quickly move you out of pain.
Our approach involves first identifying weakened muscles and the innervating nerve as it references back to the spinal column. Next we use chiropractic adjustments to relax hypertonic/hypotonic muscles and restore proper alignment of the spinal column. We then couple this with deep acupuncture needling along the spine and needling of trigger points or tender points within the muscle bands.
Additionally, we use Auriculotherapy with needles or micro current stimulation to further reduce pain. Auriculotherapy is a therapeutic intervention in which stimulation of the auricle of the external ear is utilized to alleviate health concerns in other parts of the body. It is possible to palpate for tender areas of the ear and readily notice how they correspond to painful areas of the body.
Last we use Chinese herbal formulas and supplements to strengthen the weakened area, remove toxics and increase blood flow.
