Acupuncture is a unique treatment option with a very rich history. It stems from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which has been practiced in China for thousands of years. At Cook Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center, we offer this service and many others. It's our goal to help people overcome pain and illness with natural, minimally invasive methods. Dr. Phillip Cook has been practicing chiropractic in the Garland, TX, area for nearly three decades.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a holistic therapy that involves the insertion of thin, hairlike needles into key trigger points on the body. TCM teaches that there are pathways of electromagnetic energy that flow through the body, and blockages in this energy can cause a myriad of health issues. Stimulation of these points encourages energy to flow and also promotes healing by encouraging the body to produce endorphins.

Benefits of Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture can be used to treat many different health issues. It's shown to be effective in treating everything from allergies to lower back pain. At Cook Chiropractic Health and Wellness Center of Garland, TX, we most commonly use it to treat headaches and migraines, joint pain, and postoperative pain. If you're unsure whether acupuncture can help your unique situation, contact us today. Dr. Cook is available for initial consultations, where he can answer all of your questions.

What to Expect from an Acupuncture Session

Acupuncture is a mostly pain-free process. The needles are so thin that most people only feel a bit of pressure or a pinch when they're inserted. Usually, the patient will lie down on the treatment table. The practitioner will prep them and begin inserting the needles into the points most suited to remedy their symptoms. The entire process usually lasts around 15 minutes, and then you'll be free to return to regular life.
