During your first office visit to Mills Chiropractic, the practitioner may ask you at length about your health condition, lifestyle, and behavior. The practitioner will want to obtain a complete picture of your treatment needs that may contribute to your condition. Inform the acupuncturist about all the treatments or medications you are taking and all the medical conditions you have.
Relaxing Acupuncture Treatments
Acupuncture needles are metallic, solid, and hair-thin. People experience acupuncture differently, but most feel no or minimal pain as the needles are inserted. Some people feel energized by treatment, while others feel relaxed. Improper needle placement, movement of the patient, or a defect in the needle can cause soreness and pain during treatment. This is why it is important to seek treatment from a qualified acupuncture practitioner. The treatment may take place over a period of several weeks or more.
