Acupuncture

Dr. Allen is a 1986 graduate of the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture. He is certified by the Colorado Board of Chiropractic Examiners to practice acupuncture. He treats skeletal and non-skeletal conditions with acupuncture. Dr. Allen's ability to use acupuncture along with chiropractic is what fundamentally differentiates him from other providers. This makes it tremendously more affordable and convenient for patients. Services are provided under one roof by one person. With “dry needling” gaining name recognition these days, acupuncture has become an accepted approach recommended by many physicians.

The acupuncturist's goal is to restore balance to the body's energy system by utilizing a combination of acupuncture points located on the twelve meridians. The acupuncturist's other goal is to relieve pain and inflammation quickly. The most common technique involves the use of an acupuncture needle - usually of incredibly thin gauge compared to hypodermic needles. Neuroscientists believe that acupuncture relieves pain by decreasing the nerve signals specifically involved in pain transmission and by reducing inflammation. It is also believed that acupuncture causes the release of serotonin and endorphins further decreasing pain.
