Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese treatment that has found its way into modern Western medicine. Dr. Anthony Wright and Dr. Gloria Wright of Total Health Primary Care offer acupuncture at their Selma, TX practice. We also provide services for residents of Schertz, Cibolo, Garden Ridge, New Braunfels, and Universal City. When deciding whether acupuncture is right for you, you need to understand how it works and what it offers.
If you are suffering from chronic pain in the joints or muscles, and have tried all the traditional treatments, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and rest, and you are still not getting the relief you are looking for, acupuncture becomes an attractive option. When the acupoints are stimulated, they release endorphins into the bloodstream. They are nature's pain relievers.
What About Needles?
Many people find the thought of having needles placed in their skin a less than appealing prospect. The needles are very thin, sterile, only used once, and painless to insert. But if this still hasn't convinced you, today's acupuncture can be done without needles, using magnets, lasers, or electric currents. The acupoints are still the same and the effect is the same, to restore the balance of the energy flow in the body.
What Acupuncture Treats
Many types of chronic pain respond well to acupuncture. If you have back pain, it responds well to acupuncture. It has been particularly successful in treating lower back pain. If you are miserable every month with menstrual pains, acupuncture may be the answer. If you suffer from insomnia, acupuncture can help to get you a better night's sleep. If you suffer from chronic headaches, you know how frustrating it can be to get relief, and acupuncture in Selma, TX may be the answer.
Cancer treatments can result in a lot of side effects and studies have shown that acupuncture can help to ease the symptoms.
