At Tampa Spine and Wellness, we utilize various acupuncture methods such as the application of heat, pressure, laser, or penetration of thin needles, to help you manage your pain. Acupuncture, a key component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), aims to treat a wide range of conditions naturally and easily. This form of complementary and alternative medicine will mainly involve the painless insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. While acupuncture therapy primarily works to treat pain, it also helps boost energy and overall wellness.
According to Chinese medical acupuncture, stimulating specific acupuncture points corrects imbalances in the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — through the channels known as meridians. The blockage of these meridian channels can cause pain or illness. In contrast, many Western acupuncture practitioners view acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. This stimulation appears to boost the activity of your body's natural painkillers and increase blood flow.
If you’ve been in an auto accident, acupuncture can help treat lower back pain and neck pain due to injury. It can also help bring relief from headaches, menstrual cramps, and much more!
It’s no secret; Many first-time patients may feel apprehensive toward acupuncture treatments. Have no fear. The risks of acupuncture are low if you have a competent, certified acupuncture practitioner like Dr. Lott. At Tampa-Spine and Wellness, we prioritize risk-free, stress-free, and highly-effective sessions. Possible side effects and complications may include:
Soreness: After acupuncture, you might have soreness, minor bleeding or bruising at the needle sites.
Organ injury: If the needles are pushed in too deeply, they could puncture an internal organ —particularly the lungs. At the hands of an experienced practitioner, this is an extremely rare occurrence.
Infections: Licensed acupuncturists are required to use sterile, disposable needles. A reused needle could expose you to diseases such as hepatitis. At the hands of an experienced practitioner, this is an extremely rare occurrence.
