Acupuncture utilizes single use stainless steel needles inserted into acupuncture points to restore balance to the body. Acupuncture points can be in trigger points, or in neuro-muscular junctions to treat pain.
Chiropractors work with the spine that protects the most vital system of the body- the nervous system. The nervous system includes the nerves, spinal cord and brain. The brain sends instructions down the spinal cord, to the nerves, which branch out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain from the organs and tissues tell the brain if the body is working well and is balanced, or out of alignment (dis-eased).
If you have an injury or illness that results in pain, falls, loss of balance, physical impairment, limited or abnormal movement patterns or a loss of function, a physical therapist can help.
