The Benefits Of Acupuncture

If you are a resident of Novi, MI, or Howell, MI, that needs acupuncture, look no further than the experienced providers at Rehabilitation Physicians. Together, our practitioners and providers bring you decades of experience in diagnosing and treating your ailments and illnesses using a variety of therapies.

At our facilities, you can expect to undergo complete and thorough diagnostic testing to determine the cause of your symptoms and develop a unique treatment plan suited to you. One of the many comprehensive and complementary treatments we offer is acupuncture, which offers several benefits.

What is Acupuncture?

At our Howell, MI location, we offer acupuncture, an ancient form of Chinese medicine. Acupuncture is based on the premise that our bodies contain energy called Qi (pronounced Chi), and when the energy is blocked, it causes illness, which can be relieved by inserting thin metallic needles into the skin. 

Acupuncture is a minimally invasive procedure, and you may experience mild and fleeting discomfort when the needles are inserted. It pairs well as part of a holistic treatment protocol and works to improve your overall health and wellness. 

Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture at Rehabilitation Physicians offers several benefits, including:

Pain Relief

Acupuncture done correctly offers pain relief for lower back aches and pain, joint pain, neck pain, and menstrual pain. Acupuncture works well for chronic and acute types of pain and relieves the pain and symptoms caused by irreversible conditions such as osteoarthritis. Some patients may experience almost immediate pain relief, while others may need several treatments to relieve the pain.

By providing pain relief, acupuncture contributes to a reduced need for over-the-counter- and prescription analgesics and the possibility of a reduced need for more invasive treatments like surgery.

Improved Eye Health and Headache Relief

Acupuncture can aid in improving eye health affected by eye strain and improve and reduce the pain commonly associated with headaches and migraines. Migraines, in particular, can be debilitating and extremely painful.

Relieves Stress

Acupuncture relieves and reduces stress often induced by workplace tension and helps reduce insomnia, improving overall mental health and acuity.

Improved Immunity

Blockages in the Qi cause illness. Therefore, relieving those blockages or going for routine acupuncture treatments helps strengthen the body’s natural immunity, thereby preventing disease and increasing your energy levels, which helps allow you to maintain a more active lifestyle.
