Look no further than Backsmart Wellness Center for all of your Edison acupuncture needs. Because whole-person health is our practice philosophy here at Backsmart Wellness Center, our acupuncturist, Li “Charlie” Chen M.D., and chiropractor are dedicated to determining the underlying causes of illness and discomfort. When you visit our clinic, we'll ask many questions about your everyday routines such as fitness, nutrition, occupational lifestyle and more. Your experience of integrative health is our top concern and why our experienced acupuncturist and chiropractor work closely together to develop a care plan that reflects your goals for optimizing wellness.
Once our acupuncturist has discussed your health history and goals with you, they will determine what type of acupuncture treatment is best for those needs. This may include how many sessions may be necessary over a certain course of time, what techniques will be employed, what you can expect from your treatment sessions and any at-home corrective exercises or lifestyle suggestions that may apply.
Acupuncture is a time tested modality that naturally complements the chiropractic lifestyle. Utilized for both acute and chronic concerns such as back pain, neck pain and headaches, this reliable therapy is safe and gentle. At your visit, hair thin, single-use, sterile needles will be placed along the surface of the skin. The length and type of each treatment session can vary based on what health concerns you are visiting our clinic for. Once inserted, our acupuncturist will leave the needles retained for approximately 20-40 minutes. Some treatments will involve the patient resting with needles while at times our practitioner will stimulate the needles. If you have any questions, don't hestitate to call, we strive to be your choice for acupuncture in Woodbridge and the greater Edison area.
Similar to chiropractic medicine, our Edison acupuncture treatments work by improving communication between the brain, nervous system and rest of the body. When needles are inserted, a message is sent directly to the brain whereupon the body responds. Depending upon the location of needle placement, our acupuncturist is assisting the body to create improved circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids and encourage tissues to communicate properly. Acupuncture's main focus is to bring the body back into balance by ensuring that the body is able to properly send and receive messages throughout all the organs and systems.
Health concerns ranging from neck pain, back pain, and sciatica, to headaches, menstrual concerns, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, sports injuries and more all respond very well to our acupuncture treatments. If you have been receiving regular spinal adjustments, the addition of treatments by our acupuncturist can advance your experience of healing and overall wellness. Because back pain and neck pain can create compression and tension, the insertion of needles can help to soften tissues such as ligaments, tendons, muscles and fascia. This may result in more ease and improved range of motion with your regular adjustments.
