Elledge Chiropractic & Acupuncture
Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years, to treat hundreds of health issues and is based on the premise that most diseases are the result of energy and nerve disruption. This system of natural healing is concerned with restoring proper energy flow throughout the body and to all organ systems, thus allowing for optimal communication throughout the body.
Energy flow can be disrupted all through the body, either through meridians, which are pathways for which the body communicates, or from the spinal column through vertebral misalignment. Once a doctor has identified and localized the bodies’ system interference, acupuncture is straightforward in its application and well suited for the majority of ordinary ailments. Acupuncture is also extremely effective for complex and unusual conditions due to acupuncture itself being complex and unique in its ability to deliver full-body balance and elimination of systemic dysfunction.
Mounting research over the last decade has repeatedly shown acupuncture care to produce significant improvement with patients across a vast spectrum of difficult symptoms. As researchers continue to produce such positive support for acupuncture care, more and more health problems continue to be shown to respond extremely well to this all-natural healthcare approach. Typical ailments usually responding to acupuncture health care includes: neuralgia, headaches, tics, spasms, neuralgia of the shoulders and arm, tennis elbow, osteoarthritis, rheumatism, ulcers, stomach problems, hepatitis, asthma, bronchitis, shortness of breath, coughs, certain types of heart trouble, abnormal blood pressure, lumbago, bladder irritation, bed wetting, female disorders, impotence, hay fever, loss of smell, tonsillitis, skin conditions, and even nervous or psychiatric factors based on the fact that often mental problems arise from physical disorders. MD Anderson, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Harvard University, The University of Oklahoma, UCLA Hospital, University of Maryland, are but a few of the top hospitals in the nation that regularly use acupuncture care in treatment regimes for a variety of health disorders, confirming the validity of acupuncture in mainstream healthcare.
