Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Chiropractic:

Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing arts in China. It has been used as a major part of China’s healthcare for thousands of years. Western medicine has slowly been accepting and incorporating the use of acupuncture in treating diseases and disorders. When acupuncture is performed by a chiropractic acupuncturist, treatment is administered by a doctor trained and licensed in chiropractic who has done training in acupuncture as a specialty practice. The doctor will use acupuncture and the chiropractic adjustment in conjunction with each other. The chiropractic adjustment helps release the blocked energy within the system and the acupuncture directs the energy to the appropriate area to improve healing.

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture is a method of healing that uses the insertion of needles to promote natural healing and improve function of the body. The acupuncturist will insert needles into specific acupuncture points to create the desired effect. Depending on the condition, heat and electrical stimulation can be added to the needles to increase the effect.

Where do Chiropractic Acupuncturist providers get their knowledge?

The requirements to practice acupuncture vary by state but all states require that you have additional training in the field of acupuncture in addition to your chiropractic school. Dr. Michelle Rinas completed her acupuncture coursework through the International Academy of Chiropractic Acupuncturist at Logan University. After completing the coursework, Dr. Rinas worked at an acupuncture clinic under a practitioner with 40 years experience to gain additional knowledge.

Testimonials

  • "This is an amazing clinic! Dr. Curt helped me with my low back and hip pain brought on by pregnancy, and made me feel completely comfortable the minute I met him. Very nice, knowledgeable, and truly interested in any issues I have going on. Best of all, there was NEVER any pressure to set up future appointments or sales pressure from anyone there. This is the only clinic I will ever go to from now on!
    Amazing doctors!"
    - Jolene / Rosemount, MN
  • "AMAZING DOCTORS! I had terrible pain in my knee for weeks. It hurt to go up and down the stairs, it hurt and ached driving to work and even just sitting. I was in constant pain. I went in to see Dr. Nick and he knew exactly what I needed and put me back in place. Dr. Nick does a wonderful and thorough job.
    Loved going to these guys"
    - DRT, Rosemount, MN
  • "I have loved going to these guys for years but failed to consult them on a big problem from last summer. I went to my physician who had me go through many tests and had no answers or relief! At my last appointment I mentioned it to Dr. Nick who asked me why I hadn't come in earlier. Good question! After one appointment I felt great relief, not to mention finally getting an answer!

    My problem: Pain in the muscle under my left breast. It was constantly bothering me. I made changes in my clothing, had a mammogram, an ultra sound and numerous consultations. Never once did they recommend a chiropractor. Dr. Nick traced the rib to my back and located the problem area in one appointment!

    Recommendation-Don't wait to get a second opinion! These guys are amazing and I highly recommend them!
    Great people and great doctors"
    - Brenda H., Rosemount, MN
  • "Great people and great doctors, I have seen Dr. Nicholas for two different problems, this last one was giving me so much pain! He is great after one visit there has been alot of improvement with my arm and alot less pain. He and his dad have taken great care in finding the correct way to take care of me. If you have never been to a chiropractor or have had a bad experience please give them a try you will never go anywhere else!

    WORTH YOUR TIME, MONEY AND THE RELIEF YOU CAME FOR!"
