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.

Typical skeletal conditions addressed (this is not a comprehensive list) are:

sciatica carpal tunnel syndrome osteoarthritis headaches
fibromyalgia anklyosing spondylitis trigger point syndrome neck pain
tennis elbow disc disorders TMJ disorder back pain
myofascitis

Typical systemic conditions addressed (this is not a comprehensive list) are:

metabolic disorders rheumatoid arthritis fatigue weight loss
irritable bowel syndrome hormonal disorders numbness peripheral neuropathy
multiple sclerosis circulatory disorders addiction control  


The goal of acupuncture which applies to dry needling techniques as well, is to relieve or reduce pain, spasm, and trigger points.

The other goal is to restore balance in the body's meridians, or pathways in traditional acupuncture. The most common technique involves the use of an acupuncture needle which is extremely thin and typically painless.

Scientists believe acupuncture relieves pain by decreasing nerve signals involved in pain transmission and by releasing serotonin and endorphins, the body’s own pain killers.
