How Does Combining Acupuncture with Physical Therapy Help Me Heal Even Faster?
●Acupuncture promotes blood flow. Blood flow brings nutrients, oxygen, immune and anti-inflammatory substances to the region and throughout the entire body allowing the injury to heal more quickly and naturally.
●Acupuncture stimulates the release of the body's natural painkillers, some being up to 200 times more powerful than morphine at controlling pain.
●Acupuncture helps rehabilitate post-operative injuries, sports injuries and improves recovery by decreasing swelling, increasing range of motion, muscle strength and tissue healing potential.
●Acupuncture reduces chronic pain and has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect.
●Acupuncture relaxes muscles that have shortened over time.
What Can Acupuncture Effectively Treat?
●Overuse injuries to muscles and joints
●Pain in the low back, upper back, neck, knees, shoulders, hips, elbows, wrists and ankles
●Sore muscles due to overtraining and/or after physical therapy
●Migraines and headaches
●Post-operative swelling and pain
●Speed up the healing of bone fractures
Enspirit Wellness @ Rehab Alliance
The Enspirit Wellness clinic model at Rehab Alliance is a single room furnished with multiple massage tables. Several clients are scheduled per hour and are treated in the same room. While treatments take place in a group setting, medical confidentiality is maintained through discreet written and verbal communication between the patient and the acupuncturist. Patients complete an extensive health questionnaire prior to their initial appointments. In keeping with Chinese medical tradition, all treatments are customized to the individual patient’s conditions and needs.
Our community treatment model enables us to provide high quality, appropriately frequent acupuncture at affordable rates.The recommended frequency of appointments in our clinic is based on each patient’s needs; it may range from multiple treatments per week for more serious conditions to the occasional “tune up” for mild or occasional symptoms.
