Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that uses small needles to penetrate the skin and target certain points on the body. By stimulating these points, acute pain and other conditions and symptoms can be effectively treated without the use of surgery or medications. 

Acupuncture has been practiced and studied for centuries and is a safe and non-invasive treatment administered in a calm and soothing manner and environment by Dr. Shannon Nierman at Allen County Chiropractic Wellness Center

What Does Acupuncture Treat?

Acupuncture can help with a wide variety of common symptoms and conditions, including headaches, migraines, back pain, stress, and allergies, as well as lead to better health and wellness overall. Many patients also find acupuncture gives them feelings of increased energy or waves of relaxation.
