Chiropractors and Acupuncturists can work together to increase your well-being by assisting with alignment, relaxation, pain management, reducing inflammation and increased circulation. At Vida Integrated Health, part of our team includes both Chiropractors and Acupuncturists. Here is how we can combine the two practices to help your overall well-being:
Alignment and Relaxation
Both Chiropractors and Acupuncturists share the same goal: to increase your body’s natural healing abilities. Chiropractors focus on the alignment of your spine to make sure your nerves are functioning properly. Acupuncturists can target muscle tension, mental health, digestive issues, and promote relaxation throughout the body. By working together, Acupuncture and Chiropractic care can address structural misalignments and muscle imbalances to optimize your body’s functionality.
Pain Management and Increased Circulation
Pain is one of the reasons one may choose to work with a Chiropractor or Acupuncturists. A Chiropractor can diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions, such as back pain and neck pain and work with you to determine the root cause of the pain. They can do this through spinal adjustments and joint manipulations. Chiropractic adjustments can also improve blood circulation by making sure the nerves responsible for regulating blood flow are not being blocked.
Acupuncturists use a variety of techniques to reduce muscle tension, inflammation and tightness, which include cupping, gua sha, and dry needling. Acupuncture can also help the body improve its stress response, promote relaxation, improve sleep and mood, increase energy, and improve circulation and healing. When chiropractic care and acupuncture are used together, they can maximize circulation and increase pain management. The combined efforts of both practitioners can lead to significant pain relief, decreased tension in the body, and improved mobility.
Stress Reduction and Increased Range of Motion
Stress can cause a variety of different health problems, and the combination of Chiropractic care and Acupuncture can help reduce it. Chiropractic adjustments can help balance the nervous system, and Acupuncture can trigger the release of endorphins. You may have heard endorphins referred to as the body’s natural stress relievers. Well, it’s true! This combination can lead to a sense of calm and mental well-being.
Muscle tension and joint misalignments can restrict your range of motion and flexibility. Chiropractic adjustments can realign the spine and joints, and Acupuncture can help relax tight muscles and support the nervous system. By combining these therapies, you can experience increased mobility, decrease pain, and increase circulation in the body. You may want to consider either or both of these treatments if you are injured due to physical activity to reduce the risk of further injuries.
Improved Posture and Combined Approaches
For those who sit at a desk for work or school, poor posture can be a common issue that may lead to chronic pain or musculoskeletal problems. A Chiropractor can assess your posture and correct any imbalances. Poor posture can lead to tension that an Acupuncturist can alleviate. Working together, these two practices can help you achieve better posture and prevent future problems.
Integrating Chiropractic and Acupuncture treatments allows you to create a holistic approach to health, which focuses on how the body’s systems connect. Both of these practices use the breath, the mind, and the body to help alleviate issues and increase overall well-being.
