Chiropractic vs. Acupuncture
Which treatment is better: Chiropractic or Acupuncture?
That depends on what you are coming in for. If you have a musculoskeletal condition that is caused poor body mechanics, chiropractic adjustments along with stretching and muscle work is the best option in treatment and recovery. This includes most back and neck pain and tension headaches. Some musculoskeletal can be treated by acupuncture particularly chronic muscle spasms, tightness caused by stress, inflammation, radiculopathy (nerve pain down the leg or arm).
All non musculoskeletal conditions are not chiropractic conditions and might be able to be treated with acupuncture.
The best thing about both chiropractic and acupuncture is they make great co-treatments. That means they can work together or along side other medical or complementary treatments.
