Electroacupuncture in Long Beach
Experiencing pain impacts your ability to engage in a healthy lifestyle. It limits your mobility and may prevent you from enjoying your normal activities. When you notice a regular problem or when the discomfort worsens over time, you want to work with a professional to address the situation. In our clinic, we offer treatments to help with your long-term health goals.
What is Electroacupuncture?
Electroacupuncture is a form of acupuncture treatment that uses electric pulses to stimulate the area and treat the underlying problems. The primary difference from traditional treatments is the use of electric pulses and two needles instead of a single needle.
Since the treatment uses two needles, the electric signal passes between the needles. It causes a reaction in your body and stimulates natural healing processes. The use of electricity allows the practitioner to focus on healing rather than precision. It does not require the same level of precise insertion and it treats a larger area of your body.
Conditions Treated with Acupuncture
The conditions we treat with acupuncture depend on your situation and goals. Generally, we use the treatment as a natural way to stimulate healing and recovery. It helps with a variety of health concerns, so the use of the treatment varies for each individual.
Common conditions we treat with Electroacupuncture include:
- Pain management and pain conditions
- A muscle spasm in your body
- Abdominal discomfort, such as nausea
- Nerve pain, such as tennis elbow or golfer's elbow
- Migraines and headaches
- Certain neurological conditions
Treating pain in your body or discomfort from a specific condition starts with clarifying your needs and goals. When we recommend acupuncture treatments, we focus on encouraging your body to heal without using harsh treatment strategies. The thin needles and the use of gentle electric pulses stimulates the area and encourages natural healing.
When to Discuss the Treatment with Our Chiropractor
You want to discuss the treatment with a chiropractor when traditional treatments are not working or when you want to address pain in your body. We may also recommend the treatment as part of a holistic plan to help with your long-term health goals.
A chiropractor in our clinic evaluates your situation and identifies the underlying cause of your discomfort. After clarifying the cause of the condition, we develop a personalized plan to help with the healing process. The use of Electroacupuncture helps when you want to treat a larger area of your body or when you have concerns about the precision of the needles. Since it treats a larger area and does not require the same precise incision, you will see positive results shortly after the treatment.
Treating pain, a muscle spasm or a specific condition that contributes to your discomfort starts with understanding the options available for your goals. In some situations, we recommend acupuncture treatments to help with your health.
