Understanding Acupuncture

Chiropractic Partners in Garner is thrilled to announce the arrival of Dr. Michael Ward, a chiropractor who holds advanced certification in Acupuncture. 

This modality of traditional Chinese medicine is a natural treatment option that effectively complements your chiropractic care!  It is an ancient, yet scientifically validated, medicine designed to bring balance to the body’s energy. Tiny needles are inserted into energy points that are known to produce therapeutic results. At Chiropractic Partners, we also incorporate dry needling techniques that blend eastern and western medicine, giving our patients even greater pain relief. 

Other common conditions acupuncture can treat are all types of headaches and migraines, arthritis and joint pain, menstrual cramps, digestive disorders, stress and anxiety, PTSD, insomnia, it supports healthy pregnancies, and much more. 

The methods Dr. Ward uses to insert the sterile, non-reusable needles is relatively pain free and gentle. In addition, we can utilize electrical stimulation directly on the needles, meaning we can specifically target muscles rather than use pads on the surface that may not affect deeper muscles.

While all patient’s experiences are unique, most report relief from their acupuncture treatment immediately or within a few hours. As with chiropractic, how many sessions is best for you depends on your unique treatment plan.

We can discuss your specific needs when you schedule a consultation or make an appointment with us today!
