Non-Invasive Acupuncture from Your Omaha Chiropractor
Do you suffer from recurring neck, leg, or back pain? Are your nerves injured or inflamed by an existing injury? Depending on the source of your symptoms, our Omaha chiropractor may have an innovative solution for you: acupuncture that uses lasers instead of needles. At Faimon Chiropractic, we harness your body’s own healing powers as much as possible, and acupuncture is another all-natural treatment method that provides long-term relief for our patients.
What is Needle-less Acupuncture?
Acupuncture in general involves the stimulation of specific acupressure points, or trigger points, throughout your body. You have hundreds of different acupressure points in your body, each connected to different parts of your nervous system, and acupuncture stimulates specific points to release pain-relieving chemicals, promote healing, and redistribute energy throughout your body. Traditional acupuncturists use tiny needles for this. However, many patients are squeamish or nervous about this process, and we have an alternative.
Instead of using needles, your Omaha chiropractor will use concentrated light energy to stimulate the very same points. Low-level lasers are not intense enough to pierce the skin, but the light waves themselves do penetrate down to your nerves, kick-starting the same pain-relieving and healing processes without sharp objects. Our chiropractor adjusts the wavelength to suit your particular needs, from superficial tissue injuries to deep-tissue degeneration and damage.
Benefits of Acupuncture from Your Omaha Chiropractor
Our needle-less acupuncture, also known as low level laser therapy (LLLT) or cold laser therapy, offers many of the same benefits of acupuncture, plus some new benefits that make it more convenient and comfortable for our patients. Our Omaha chiropractor, Dr. Faimon, knows how important it is to heal your body and minimize risks, so he chose acupuncture that does all of the following:
- Repairs tissue (including muscles and tendons) after inflammation or damage
- Reduces swelling to help joints heal more quickly
- Helps promote healing in hard-to-heal wounds
- Relieves pain without any heat, pain, or piercing of the skin
Conditions We Treat with Needle-less Acupuncture
Pain comes in many forms, but our first goal is to figure out exactly what’s causing yours. Just like traditional acupuncture, low-level lasers can be used to correct or relieve symptoms of a wide variety of conditions. Here are some of the conditions our Omaha chiropractor treats with needle-less acupuncture:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Minor strains and sprains
- Knee Injuries
- Back Injuries
- Chronic Back Pain
- Chronic Joint Pain
If you don’t see your condition on this list, don’t worry. Our Omaha chiropractor treats every patient on a case-by-case basis, and whether or not acupuncture is right for you, he will personalize a treatment plan for you. Your first consultation is your first step toward finding out whether acupuncture is right for your pain.
