Why should I try Acupuncture?

Results! Results! Results!

“After having surgery on my knee, I was still in tremendous pain. I was taking one pain killer after another, just sitting around, getting depressed, getting nothing done with my life. I tried Acupuncture even though I was very skeptical. Now, I don’t take any medicine. I’m not in pain and I’ve gotten my life back. I don’t know how it works, but it definitely works.” John P. 42 yrs. Old.

At our health and wellness center, we are all about getting results for our patients. Acupuncture is one the fundamental reasons that we get results when other methods have failed. Our healthcare team knows that Acupuncture is one of the main reasons that our patients are living more productive and vibrant lives.

Does Acupuncture really work?

Extensive research and real world experience says YES!

1st - Research in the Journal of The American Medical Association (JAMA), The Journal of Pain Medicine and The National Institute of Health (NIH) all show that Acupuncture provides more long term pain relief than Pain Medications while being much safer.

2nd – Real-life experience shows that Acupuncture can help people in all areas of life, from workers in stressful office jobs or physically demanding worksites, to homemakers and elite athletes looking for pain relief or energy enhancement.

Professional athletes and weekend worriers use Acupuncture to heal their bodies and elevate their performance. Football Stars like Aaron Rodgers, James Harrison, Osi Umenyiora and Darrelle Revis all incorporate Acupuncture into their health regimen.

The US Air Force uses “battlefield Acupuncture” to manage pain quickly while VA (Veterans) hospitals use Acupuncture to manage chronic pain without the risks that come with highly addictive pain medications.

Hospitals across America now use Acupuncture in the ER, in recovery centers and in rehab clinics.

Addiction centers use Acupuncture to help patients quit smoking, get off drugs and alcohol and to lose weight.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture benefits are achieved by improving blood flow and the flow of energy, often called Qi (pronounced “Chee”), throughout the body. When the blood or energy flow is restricted, called stagnation, the body is restricted from getting the nutrients and energy needed for pain relief and healing.

To better visualize the concept of Qi, think of blood flow and energy flow as being like riverbeds that irrigate the land; feeding, nourishing and sustaining the substance through which it flows.

If a dam were placed at any point along the river, the nourishing effect that the water had on the whole river would stop at the point the dam was placed.

The same is true in relation to Qi. When Qi becomes blocked, the rest of the body that was being nourished by the continuous flow now suffers. Illness and disease can result if the flow is not restored.

Acupuncture is a tool used to restore the flow of Qi. Acupuncturists insert needles into specific acupuncture points. These insertions clear any residing blockages, or dams, thus freeing the river to better feed the body in its entirety.

What causes a block to blood and energy flow?

Physical, chemical, or emotional stress can cause inflammation or damage to the body. This can cause the flow of blood and energy to slow down or stop flowing properly. This is Stagnation. If this goes uncorrected, the effected areas start to degenerate or wear down.

The goals of Acupuncture include returning flow of energy and blood back to normal and reinstating optimal function. Restoring normal body function allows the body to heal itself.

What happens during an acupuncture treatment?

First, your acupuncturist will ask about your health history. Then, he or she will perform a physical examination that focuses on your individual health needs. Based the results of the preliminary evaluation, the acupuncturist will be able to recommend a proper treatment plan to address your particular condition.

To begin the acupuncture treatment, you lay comfortably on a treatment table while precise acupoints are stimulated on various areas of your body. Most people feel no or minimal discomfort as fine needles are gently placed. The needles are usually retained between five and 30 minutes. During and after treatments, people report that they feel very relaxed.

How many treatments will I need?

The frequency and number of treatments differ from person to person. Some people experience dramatic relief in the first treatment. For complex or long-standing chronic conditions, most patients begin with two or three treatments per week and decrease in frequency as the problem gets better.

For less complex problems, fewer visits are typically required.

The key to your success will begin with the relationship between you and your Acupuncturist. Your individualized treatment plan will be based on your symptoms, your examination and the specific health and wellness goals that you share with your Acupuncturist.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "When I first arrived at Dr. Klayman's office, I had a "pinched nerve" in my lower back that was causing pain down to my left foot. Before arriving, I had already been diagnosed with a Herniated Disc. I could not sleep and I was limping when I walked, all because of the pain from the pinched nerve and Herniated Disc. I had tried other things before coming to see Dr. Klayman. I went to an Orthopedist, who referred me for an MRI. This showed the Herniation and Osteoporosis. The Orthopedist gave me 3 separate injections, epidurals and spinal injections at the hospital. I got NO RELIEF! I had doubts that a Chiropractor could help me, but I decided to try Dr. Klayman’s approach. Once I began care with Dr. Klayman, I started noticing a cessation of my nerve pain. I noticed that I was feeling better, sleeping better and limping less and less. My experience with Dr. Klayman and the Chiropractic Wellness Center can be described as “RELIEF from my Nerve Pain!”"
