League City Spine & Sports Medicine
At League City Spine & Sports Medicine, we offer acupuncture as an option for treatment for your symptoms. Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny needles through your skin at strategic points on your body to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue. The needles are very thin, so insertion usually causes little to no discomfort. Between 5 and 20 needles are used in a typical treatment. You may feel a mild aching sensation when a needle reaches the correct depth. Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body’s natural pain killers.
