Acupuncture

Contemporary Medical Acupuncture is the evidence based application of the traditional theories of  acupuncture combined with the current concepts of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology & pathophysiology. Combining ancient Chinese principles with modern science in order to relieve acute pain, alter movement, and improve function. It involves the insertion of very fine sterile disposable needles in specific points on the body to access different physiological responses. Acupuncture points are carefully determined based on your specific injury and symptoms targeting the muscles and nerves that are causing the pain or dysfunction.  

The scientifically proven benefits of acupuncture include: pain relief, inflammation reduction, improved blood flow and arterial function, stress reduction, improved nerve conduction and improved systemic organ function. 

Electro Acupuncture is the method of attaching acupuncture needles to a device that generates a mild but continuous electrical pulse.  Electro Acupuncture is extremely effective as it stimulates a larger region surrounding acupuncture points, increases blood circulation, relaxing spastic muscles, and releasing painful trigger points.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Dysfunction

Chiropractors are trained to correct problems due to poor joint mechanics and joint misalignments. Chiropractic treatment of the TMJ focuses on joint mobilizations, adjustments and soft tissue techniques applied directly to the TMJ and its surrounding musculature. In most cases, TMJ dysfunction is influenced or exacerbated by poor joint mechanics, and tight musculature in the upper back and neck. Therefore, of equal importance, Chiropractic care also focuses on corrections to the mechanics and positioning of the joints in the upper back and neck to relieve symptoms associated with TMJ joint dysfunction.

When these treatments are employed, motion of your upper back, neck and jaw joints can improve and your symptoms such as: ear pain, jaw locking, headaches, and neck pain can be reduced or eliminated.
