Acupuncture has a positive physiological effect on the body in many ways. Acupuncture stimulates the central nervous system to release chemicals that dull pain, boost the immune system, and regulate body function. It also stimulates the brain to release serotonin and endorphins, which reduce the stress response and emotional complaints. Acupuncture improves blood circulation and provides nourishment to nerves and muscles for an increased healing response. Thermal imaging shows that acupuncture treatments make inflammation subside. Last, but certainly not least, acupuncture treatments reduce activity in the limbic system, otherwise known as the “emotional brain,” and activate areas of the brain associated with rest and recuperation. The World Health Organization endorses acupuncture as a highly effective treatment for over forty-two different pathologies.
After the skin points are determined, we can use one of over 30 methods of stimulation. The most common technique we use a more modern approach of Electrical Stimulation of the specific points. This technique is safer than using needles, there is no danger of infection, no blood, and the technique is virtually painless. The results are equal to, if not better than the majority of other acupuncture techniques.
Headaches and migraines are often the result of a poorly aligned spine, especially the vertebrae in the neck and upper back. Dr. De Jong will realign vertebrae to reduce the pain and frequency of headaches and migraines. Stress causes headaches and migraines by tensing muscles, especially those at the base of the skull. Tense muscles prevent blood from flowing freely; poor circulation prevents nutrient-rich blood from reaching oxygen-starved muscles and organs. Chiropractic care relaxes these muscles to restore proper circulation.
It’s really quite simple. Chiropractic care – through the use of safe and natural spinal adjustive techniques, soft tissue mobilization, stretching and exercise programs, diet and nutritional counseling, and extensive biomechanical training – focuses on all causes which have led to the symptoms of pain and tissue injury and do not focus on solely eliminating pain.

Back pain is caused by either a mechanical misalignment or a soft tissue injury. Mechanical misalignments such as a herniated disc or slipped disc compress nearby nerves, triggering pain. A soft tissue injury, such as a muscle strain or sprain, can compromise mobility and affect your quality of life. Both of these injuries require prompt treatment in order to properly heal and effectively manage pain.
Chiropractic adjustments are key to correcting this misalignment. Adjustments are a gentle, non-invasive and drug free pain management technique. We will first perform diagnostic tests to determine the precise location of any spinal subluxations. Once the location for these subluxations is found, we will create a custom treatment program to bring proper alignment back to your spine. Chiropractic adjustments create space between the vertebra for proper alignment, relieving pressure on the nerves. While many patients experience immediate low back pain relief after just one or two treatment sessions, other patients benefit from ongoing care for chronic pain relief.
