At both our Durham and Cary NC locations, Triangle Chiropractic is state-certified to perform Acupuncture and have found it to be effective in treating numerous body pains, Fibromyalgia, headaches or migraines, and even sleep disorders. Acupuncture, an important tool in pain management, utilizes the natural systematic circulation throughout the body to target and correct imbalance. The stimulation of key points relaxes muscles, alleviates tension and, ultimately, leads to a reduction in pain.

Acupuncture, a treatment used in both Eastern and Western medicine, involves the insertion of extremely thin needles at specific points located on or near the surface of the skin. The Traditional Chinese school of thought explores the concept of yin and yang and balancing Qi or energy as it flows through the body. An imbalance of Qi, leading to pain or illness, is alleviated with needle placement along the body’s meridians or energy channels, allowing the body to return to a natural balance.

In Western practice, stimulation of the acupuncture points is found to increase circulation, as well as, the body’s production of neurotransmitters and endorphins, which are a much more potent and effective pain remedy than morphine. Forty-two percent of hospitals now offer at least one type of complementary or alternative medicine treatment, according to a recent survey by the American Hospital Association, including The Mayo Clinic, which has integrated Acupuncture as a valid, complementary practice essential to treatment of chronic pain.
