How Chiropractic Care and Acupuncture Complement Each Other

Chiropractic wellness care focuses on the health of the spine and the entire musculature system, which includes the neck, joints, tissues, and nerves. Chiropractic treatment is non-invasive and done without the use of medicine. 

Dr. Jeremiah Carlson of Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture promotes optimal health and whole-person care. Instead of examining and treating only the pain or problem, Dr. Carlson observes the body as a whole to determine the source of the problem and how to resolve it for continued long-term health.

Primary goals of chiropractic care include reducing pain and restoring the affected joint or area to good health. Chiropractic treatments are frequently used for:

  • Back pain

  • Headaches

  • Joint problems

  • Coccydynia (Tailbone pain)

  • Herniated discs

  • Sciatica

  • Myofascial Pain

  • Whiplash

  • Posture problems

  • Auto injuries

  • And more.

Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese medicine developed in ancient China over 3,000 years ago. Acupuncture involves inserting special needles in specific points on the body to cause energy movement within the body to stimulate natural healing. 

Acupuncture helps the immune system to function better. It is frequently used to improve overall health, as well as to treat numerous existing illnesses. Acupuncture reduces stress and relieves pain.

Together, chiropractic care and acupuncture can be highly effective at returning the body to a state of wellness. Dr. Jeremiah Carlson of Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture specializes in both chiropractic treatment and acupuncture.

Chiropractic adjustments and acupuncture are used in combination for many conditions, but most commonly neck pain, back pain, and headaches. 

Patients receiving chiropractic manipulations for chronic neck pain experience greater flexibility and range-of-motion. Acupuncture is effective in relieving the pain when used with the chiropractic manipulations.

Spinal manipulations are often used to treat and resolve lower back problems. In conjunction with the chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture can help relieve lower back pain.

Chiropractic care in combination with acupuncture can provide relief from both headaches and migraines. Chiropractic treatments target the cause of the headaches. Your chiropractor will also consider if lifestyle factors are contributing to your discomfort and offer suggestions for modifications. Acupuncture helps by stimulating your nervous system so chemicals and hormones are released into the body to provide headache relief.

Call Dr. Jeremiah Carlson at Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture for an evaluation. Dr. Carlson will work with you to determine if a combination of chiropractic care and acupuncture will be beneficial for your condition.
