Chiropractic: Not Just for Back and Neck Pain

May 18, 2016, 10:10 pm

Chiropractors have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

Many people come to The Institute of Chiropractic and Acupuncture Therapy because they have had little or no response to medical treatment or other chiropractic treatments.  Here are some common conditions we see in our clinic that have had successful outcomes with chiropractic:

Headaches              About the Doctor for square box        Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Sports Injuries                  Digestive issues

Depression                       Allergies

There are many different chiropractic techniques that may be used for adjustments.  At The Institute some of the specific chiropractic techniques and methods Dr. Burrup has been trained in include Gonstead, Diversified, Thompson, Activator, Toggle Recoil, Nimmo, sports injury and extremity adjustment.

The goal of our clinic is to help our patients become empowered with their health, achieving their optimal wellness goals.  If you are suffering needlessly from pain, have a condition that has not responded well to medical care or other chiropractic treatments, or are trying to achieve optimal wellness in your life, chiropractic can help you on the road back to better health!

Acupuncture Without Needles….Really!

November 2, 2015, 11:32 pm

Ever been nervous about acupuncture? Learn about NEEDLE-LESS ACUPUNCTURE and what alternatives can be used instead with acupuncture points.

But first…here is the truth about needles: The needles used in acupuncture are very small compared to needles used for getting shots or drawing blood.  Six to ten acupuncture needles will fit inside a standard hypodermic needle used for drawing blood.  They are very thin and, depending on the style of acupuncture used, can be inserted a couple of millimeters or a full inch into the acupoint.  Many people do not feel the acupuncture needles when they are inserted. Those that do feel any discomfort equate it with that of a small pinch during the acupuncture treatment.

However, Needles Do Not Have to be Used in Acupuncture. Some of the other forms of stimulation to acupuncture points include laser light, electrical impulses, firm rubbing or pressure, tapping the point, or taping an object to the point such as a small metal ball.
