3 Acupuncture Myths Busted March 8, 2017

3 Acupuncture Myths Busted, St. Peters, Missouri

Acupuncture is the ancient method of stimulating certain pressure points to create a positive reaction in another part of the body. Dr. James Lustig, D.C. of Mid Rivers Chiropractic in Saint Peters, MO, has been alleviating his patients’ pain for over 30 years and uses acupuncture as a pain management tool.

While Dr. Lustig and his patients see the benefits of practicing acupuncture, there is still a lot of confusion surrounding this procedure. That’s why he is debunking the following three acupuncture myths:

  • Acupuncture Hurts: Acupuncture usually consists of inserting needles into certain body parts, including the face, so it’s no wonder why some people would assume it is painful.  However, the needles used during acupuncture procedures are much thinner than hypodermic needles. Some patients do not even feel the needles being inserted into their skin. Others simply feel pressure, but not the pain usually associated with needles.
  • AcupunctureAcupuncture Is Expensive: The procedure is probably not as costly as you would think. Prices vary by location and many insurance providers cover all or most of the cost. Mid Rivers Chiropractic accepts most insurance plans because they want as many people to benefit from acupuncture treatments as possible.
  • Acupuncture Only Relieves Pain: While acupuncture is most commonly associated with pain relief, that is not the only symptom the procedure can treat. Acupuncture is also said to reduce nausea and vomiting induced by chemotherapy among some cancer patients. It is also said to help alleviate depression and insomnia.

If you want to take the next step to holistic health and wellness, consider acupuncture. Mid Rivers Chiropractic offers affordable acupuncture treatment as well as relief from back and neck pain.
