Acupuncture Chicago

What do our patients like about acupuncture?

It is relaxing, it is not painful, it is simple, there are no medications involved, there are no harmful side effects, and it really works!

What is acupuncture effective at helping?

After over 4,000 years of use and study, it can treat just about any condition known to man. It is fantastic for treating extremities such as shoulders, feet, elbows, wrists, hands, and joints such as the temporomandibular joint (TMJ).

Studies have proven that acupuncture for back pain is more effective than
in-patient hospitalizations complete with medication.

Knees and ankle pain, especially when due to arthritis or injuries respond very quickly to acupuncture; often even quicker than taking anti-inflammatory medication.

What are the different kinds of acupuncture used at Chicago Loop Chiropractic?

What are the potential benefits of acupuncture?

Acupuncture is used to treat many of the internal medicine problems that people are tired of treating with medications. For instance, female hormone issues or chronic stress and fatigue.

Acupuncture is a very tangible treatment, you can measure it's effects and it gives you instant results. Patients report feeling better within hours after a treatment. The results can be very long-term and in most cases after a series of treatments you will see a resolution of a problem without return of symptoms.

Does Acupuncture hurt?

Very fine needles are used during treatment. Some needles, depending on their use and site of action are thinner and smaller than others. At times, patients can report very minimal discomfort just as the needle is inserted. However, it is not consistent with every needle inserted. Some days the patient may feel absolutely nothing and other days the same point treated the day before may feel the minimal discomfort described above.

The bottom line is that we have never had a patient ever report that their experience with acupuncture was negative or so uncomfortable that they did not wish to proceed or come again.

How does acupuncture integrate with other healing arts?

Acupuncture integrates beautifully with many of the other healing arts. We get great results when we can combine an adjustment of a joint or the low back and an acupuncture session in the same week or on the same day.

What is special about receiving acupuncture treatment at Chicago Loop Chiropractic?

We are using the acugraph digital meridian imaging to diagnose the patient's acupuncture meridians and points. We use a computerized program that is an invaluable tool that gives the patient an evidence-based statistic that validates the same findings the patient would receive in a pulse or tongue diagnosis exam.

The uncanny accuracy of the Energy Cycle Graph matching a patient's diurnal energy, fatigue, and sleep patterns is the most unique and amazing parts of the exam. It can read a patient "like a book". I tell patients the acugraph is like "Santa Claus"..."It knows when you've been sleeping, it knows when your awake".. Patients love it.

How much does acupuncture treatment at Chicago Loop Chiropractic cost?

We have kept the costs down on acupuncture for our patients. We respect our patients needs and value their desire to heal efficiently by combining acupuncture and chiropractic. Acupuncture for general health conditions is $65.00 a session.

Facial and cosmetic acupuncture require over 100 needles in the face and can take 45 min to one hour to insert and therefore our list price is $150.00 per session.

Will the patient need repeat visits?

Yes. Acupuncture is like any other healing art; results may not happen in one treatment. The length of time can vary depending on the condition treated and the severity. Results can usually be noticed within 3 to 4 visits.
