Chiropractic Acupuncture Provides Pain Relief to Dr. Brian Matthews’ Patients in West Palm Beach, FL
Acupuncture may be an ancient Chinese practice, but modern acupuncture combined with chiropractic care has provided relief of pain for many residents of West Palm Beach, FL. Acupuncture can treat many conditions as well as back and neck pain by addressing overall wellness in ways that western medicine does not. Dr. Brian Matthews evaluates all of the body’s senses at Matthews Chiropractic, Acupuncture and Rehabilitation office; because chiropractic care is about understanding your entire body and improving your quality of life. Rather than solely addressing the immediate pain, acupuncture works to find the root of the problem. Emotional pain or stress can cause physical pain throughout the body, especially in the back and neck. Chiropractic acupuncture is a very different approach from traditional Western practices, as it addresses more than just the obvious symptoms of the patient. Brian Matthews, DC works closely with his patients to help alleviate pain that may be due to more than a purely physical injury.
The acupuncture treatment itself follows invisible meridians along the body. These meridians are channels for energy flow in normal, healthy patients. This energy flow, or chi, is the life energy that forms within every living thing. It is the central principle of traditional Chinese medicine, as well as an important principle in martial arts and Feng Shui. Without a proper flow of chi throughout your body, you develop physical pain and illness. Acupuncture restores balance to your chi through stimulation of meridian channels.
The meridian channels that exist along the skeletal structure of your body allow energy to flow. Each meridian has a different meaning and when any point is blocked or needs to be repaired, it results in the sickness or pain; for which many patients come to Dr. Brian Matthews’ office seeking treatment. Acupuncture needles are placed at precise meridian point’s along the body. The resulting stimulation of these points unblocks and repairs different energy channels for a positive healing effect. Dr. Brian Matthews’ acupuncture treatment can also include stimulation by magnets and electric pulses that further treat the meridians.
