Whether you’re experiencing back pain, neck pain, or headaches, the discomfort can prevent you from enjoy the hobbies you love and affect your quality of life. At Better Health Chiropractic in Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Evansdale, Hudson, and Waverly, IA, we offer various treatments, including acupuncture, to alleviate your pain and help you feel your best. Before visiting us, learn what to expect during your first appointment below:


What to Expect During Your First Appointment

When you visit us, we will discuss your goals with you and may even perform a physical exam to learn more about your condition. Then, we will create a treatment plan for your specific needs.

Most sessions take about an hour to complete. Before we begin, we’ll discuss your treatment with you and then have you lie down on a padded table. We will then insert thin needles into certain points of the body, which help reduce pain, reduce stress, and even help you sleep better.

Does Acupuncture Cause Pain?

Since acupuncture needles are extremely thin, most people who receive treatment do not feel pain or discomfort when they are inserted. You might feel a dull ache when the needle is inserted into the affected region, but it typically dissipates quickly.

After your treatment, you may feel relaxed or energized. Most people also notice a reduction in pain after six to eight treatment sessions. If you don’t feel at least some improvement after a few sessions, it’s important to let our chiropractors know. We can suggest another therapy, such as dry needling, that may be a better fit for you.
