chiropractic or acupuncture

Have you ever wondered whether chiropractic or acupuncture can help you? Or maybe you’ve tried one of them or both of them and yet your’e still not sure which one or possibly both of them could benefit you? As a current patient of both chiropractic and acupuncture, and as someone who has had times in my life when I’ve had only chiropractic and other times when I’ve had only acupuncture, I thought I would share a few of my thoughts and experiences on this subject.


Do you have back, knee or hip pain on a regular basis? Have you been in a car accident or any other kind of accident recently? If so, then you really need to at least get a chiropractic exam and consider regular chiropractic treatments for at least a few months if not forever.


Do you have PMS or chronic cramps during your period? Do you have chronic allergies or an autoimmune disorder or more than one? If so, then acupuncture should without a doubt be a part of your treatments. While chiropractic can also help with allergies and autoimmune conditions, acupuncture works better than chiropractic for many people, including me from my own experience. My current acupuncturist is also a chiropractor and she said that she doesn’t know anyone who has ever healed from severe cramping and womens hormonal imbalances without using acupuncture. My own experience was that I tried chiropractic for this for 4 years and it never worked whereas acupuncture healed me from these within about 5 months.

Do you have asthma, frequent colds, or joint pain? From my experience either chiropractic or acupuncture can work equally as well?

So which one is best? Well the short answer is that neither one is better necessarily, it depends on what you need. If you aren’t sure, then I recommend trying both.

Chiropractic and acupuncture can be great for your overall health and they can help with a wide variety of health conditions that cannot easily be cured with traditional medicine. They can also help your body to heal faster and can help with chronic pain. However, many western medicine doctors are skeptical of them and in some cases may even be very much against their patients recieving chiropractic and or acupuncture treatments.

1. Chiropractic and acupuncture can reduce and in some cases eliminate your need for drugs. This is especially true if you are using drugs for asthma, allergies or pain since these are three of the top conditions that chiropractic and acupuncture can help with.

2. There are many conditions that they can’t really treat that acupuncture and chiropractic can. Examples include: food allergies, PMS and cramping, low back pain, stomach pains, and quiting smoking and other addictions.

3. These treatments are proven to work and to be safe for most people. You do however, have to be careful with chiropractic if you have had back surgery, you have osteoporosis, or you have a risk for strokes.

4. Chiropractic and acupuncture can cost less over the long term. In the short-term they may cost more depending upon your insurance but over the course of your lifetime, they can save you a lot of money by preventing additional health conditions, avoiding drugs and more.

5. If you use chiropractic and acupuncture regularly, then you won’t need their doctor services as often.
