With each subsequent acupuncture session, you notice a gradual improvement in your shoulder pain.
You can move more freely and without hesitation. Tasks that were once challenging become easier.
The chronic pain that once dominated your life gradually fades away, replaced by a newfound sense of ease and comfort. Your body feels lighter, as if a heavy burden has been lifted.
What Is Chiropractic Acupuncture?
Chiropractic acupuncture is based on thousands of years of acupuncture practice and knowledge in traditional Chinese medicine.
Our WIN Chiropractors are trained in contemporary medical acupuncture.
They use it to help the areas where you feel pain receive information, or neurological stimulation.
This balances those areas, so they work better and move better, so you can feel better.
Acupuncture during a chiropractic visit at our Niagara Falls clinic can help speed your recovery time.
WIN Chiropractors are professionally trained in acupuncture to help the function and health of your anatomy!
