Acupuncture Q&A

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a medical treatment that uses thin, tiny needles inserted into specific points on the body to improve health. The philosophy behind acupuncture is that your ailment is caused by an imbalance in your chi, or flow of energy. The needles used for acupuncture help restore balance to reduce your symptoms and improve your health..

Am I a good candidate for acupuncture?

Your specialist at Kersenbrock Medical and Wellness can determine if you’re a good candidate for acupuncture after an evaluation. Acupuncture offers many benefits beyond pain relief and is used as a treatment for many conditions.

Some of the conditions that can benefit from acupuncture include:

  • Neck and back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Joint pain
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Tendinitis
  • Insomnia
  • Addiction and alcoholism
  • Shingles

What can I expect during acupuncture?

Your acupuncture treatment takes 30-60 minutes. After your initial evaluation, your acupuncturist at Kersenbrock Medical and Wellness determines the placement of your needles and begins the insertion. The needles used for acupuncture are thin, but you may feel some mild discomfort during needle placement and an aching sensation when it hits the right spot.

After all the needles are inserted, your specialist has you lie back and relax for 10-20 minutes as the needles help restore your energy balance. Then, the needles are removed.

To get the most benefit, you may need a series of acupuncture treatments. Your acupuncturist at Kersenbrock Medical and Wellness creates a treatment plan before you get started so you know what to expect and how to prepare.

What are other Chinese medicine treatments?

In addition to acupuncture, Dr. Lambert also offers cupping and customized herbal regimens. Cupping is an ancient Chinese medicine treatment that uses special cups to create negative pressure on various parts of your body to relieve pain and stress and improve blood flow.

The specialists at Kersenbrock Medical and Wellness do their best to get you off pharmaceuticals. Dr. Lambert can create an herbal regimen that helps you manage your health and wellness naturally.
