EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Jan. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wellness One of South Bergen in East Rutherford, NJ is educating patients about the benefits of acupuncture. Their licensed acupuncturist Heather Trujillo is a board certified acupuncturist providing treatment for back pain, whiplash-related neck pain, sciatica and leg pain. According to scientific research, acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system, improves circulation and increases the body's endorphin levels. These physiological changes help to naturally manage pain without the need for drugs or surgery.
The practice's chiropractors, Dr. Elliot Foster and Dr. David Foster often recommend acupuncture as a complement to chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy and massage treatments.
Patients suffering from chronic pain may benefit from acupuncture, an alternative method of healthcare that stimulates specific muscles and nerves in the body. According to Dr. Elliot Foster, these treatments are especially effective for managing back pain and neck pain.
"Chronic pain can rob an individual of their happiness and livelihood," said Dr. Foster. "Acupuncture can help naturally manage pain, restoring balance to the body by stimulating or calming the central nervous system. These treatments complement chiropractic adjustments and enhance overall well-being."
According to acupuncturist Heather Trujillo, these treatments are just as effective as some medication for managing pain. "Many of our patients are surprised by how effective acupuncture can be," says Trujillo. "In fact, these treatments may work when other techniques or medication fail. By integrating treatment with complementary therapies such as spinal adjustments, patients benefit from long-lasting pain relief and enhanced overall health. Note very chiropractor offers this level of service."
Treatments are based on Ancient Chinese healing techniques that sought to restore balance to the body nerve system. Altering the central nervous system helps to naturally manage back pain, neck pain and headaches.
In addition to pain management, studies show that the treatment is effective for managing muscle soreness. This includes pain caused by sports injuries such as tennis elbow and ankle sprains.
