Acupuncture involves more than just the obvious symptoms of a patient. As a Chiropractor trained in acupuncture, Dr. Matthews can evaluate all of the five senses, the manner in which the patient speaks, what he or she talks about, Chinese pulses and takes into account factors that may not necessarily be factors that Western doctors value as being important. Many times, our physical pain comes as a result of an emotional imbalance rather than an actual injury or illness. Acupuncture is now a widely accepted form of treatment especially for back and neck pain.
