Acupuncture in NYC
Acupuncture is used at CSC+M as an adjudicative therapy for musculoskeletal cases. Acupuncture maximizes recovery between appointments by reducing inflammation and pain. Muscles that are chronically tight and short are released, neuropathic pain is reduced, and weak muscles are stimulated. Our acupuncturist combines Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques with dry needling and neuro-muscular needling techniques in order to maximize each patient’s outcome.
Acupuncture’s anti-inflammatory and neurologically stimulating properties make it effective at treating a wide range of conditions. In addition to skeletomuscular cases, acupuncture effectively treats stress, anxiety, headaches/migraines, depression, allergies, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, morning sickness, and post-stroke pain and muscle weakness, among other conditions and symptomologies.
At CSC+M, we strive to utilize a collaborative and team based approach to make sure you are living your life to the fullest. Acupuncture has been an incredible addition to the services that we offer. Call us at (212) 333-4884 to find out more information about what acupuncture can do for you.
I suffered a lower back injury my first year of college, during this time I have seen many other doctors and one other chiropractor. But I’ve enjoyed my experience the Center for Spine Care and Mobility the most. I’ve only been seeing them for a short time, but I already see an improvement in my core strength and the pain in my lower back that would occasionally flare up is now slowly but surely disappearing. I would recommend CSC+M to anyone who wants to see great results and be treated incomparably by a wonderful staff.
As part of CSC+M’s integrative approach, our team of New York City-based acupuncturists make use of traditional Chinese medicine techniques to maximize patient recovery between appointments.
