Chiropractic and Acupuncture: Alternative Healthcare Supports Body Healing

Chiropractor and Acupuncturist Chapel Hill, NC

Acupractic Natural Healing Center and Acupuncture at Eastowne LLC are two offices at 205 Providence Rd. in Chapel Hill. Here, Dr. Lisa Oskardmay helps patients each day using chiropractic and acupuncture. Chiropractic and acupuncture are two of the main types of so-called alternative healthcare in America. Also referred to as holistic healthcare, these healing body solutions help bring out the best in each person’s body and mind to maximize one’s individual healing potential. But how do they do this?

Chiropractic and acupuncture rely on the fact that the body knows how to heal itself when given proper instructions, or, instead, with the removal of impediments to self-healing. Rather than a vague idea, we understand that the human body and mind are miraculous and suffer when external and internal circumstances get in the way. At the offices of Dr. Lisa Oskardmay, she helps the body-mind get back on track using chiropractic adjustments to the spine and extremities, massage to the muscles and ligaments, and acupuncture to the meridian and channels that carry healing energy.

For instance, when we sit, the hips and legs may suffer because there is a blockage to energy movement from head to toe. The hip and leg muscles shorten, back muscles tighten, and other accompanying disorders result in hip and back pain, lowered metabolism, and respiratory rate, to name a few. Dr. Oskardmay uses treatments unique to each individual at our office to improve muscle balance and nerve flow and motivate good posture.

For treatment, Dr. Oskardmay may perform a chiropractic adjustment to the lower back, lumbar spine, and hips, for instance, to mobilize the vertebrae surrounding nerves innervating the hips, legs, knees, and feet. She uses massage such as Thumper percussion massage, gua sha, or cupping techniques to lengthen tight muscles and improve muscle balance. Each treatment is individualized to the persons’ needs and wishes.

Acupuncture is a beneficial treatment option for many. Dr. Oskardmay may employ acupuncture needles in the lumbar region and legs, for example, to resolve qi flow problems in the lower back.

Similarly, there are many treatment options for neck and shoulder pain, the tightness between the shoulder blades, and problems sitting up straight or concentrating. Both chiropractic and acupuncture treat every condition from headache to stomach to infertility to depression from the standpoint of helping the body improve and use its natural resources- that is, nerve flow and qi flow.

Chiropractic and acupuncture are ages-old non-drug, non-surgical healing options available to us all.
