What Is Acupuncture and How Can It Support Wellness?


Acupuncture is a form of Eastern medicine used for centuries to treat pain and other health issues. In the United States, Acupuncture is considered an alternative treatment for a variety of conditions. It is a specialized form of physical therapy that implements a technique of treating pressure points on the skin that are thought to stimulate the central nervous system. This is accomplished by using precise, specially designed needles.

Acupuncture is used for pain relief, for things like headaches, back pain, and sciatica. It can also treat allergies, asthma, anxiety, fatigue, depression, and various other issues. Again, it is believed to stimulate the central nervous system, by releasing chemicals into muscle, the spinal cord, and the brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.Qualified acupuncturists with training in this form of treatment practice the technique . At Elite Spine and Sports Care of Totowa we offer Acupuncture for the wellness of our patients.
