Dr. Roby Taylor Myers, Owner & Lead Chiropractor at East Coast Elite Chiropractic-Sports Performance & Rehab
I appreciate all the support over the last 2 years while setting up my new practice. I have had successful results with over 90-95% of my patients with disc injuries/ neck/ back pain in utilizing the DTS table as a stand alone treatment. I will be honest- it was a tough decision initially because of the financial investment/ commitment while I was starting practice. I am glad that I decided to integrate the DTS into my practice from the start because of the referrals and the wonderful response from my patients. Thanks again for all your help over the last 2 years and continued support.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the benefits of acupuncture therapy?
Acupuncture therapy’s primary purpose is to relieve pain and an alternative treatment to traditional pharmaceutical care. Many treatments for discomfort rely on medication with associated risks including potential reliance. Fortunately, acupuncture does not carry the same addictive or destructive qualities. In fact, many common ailments can be treated with acupuncture therapy including chronic headaches and migraines as well as back, neck, and knee pain, according to the World Health Organization. In addition to the WHO's comprehensive list of conditions that respond well to acupuncture, experienced acupuncturists claim the therapy is also effective for those with high blood pressure, chemotherapy discomfort, and even menstrual pain. Regardless of your condition, acupuncture is thought to be safe with few side effects and can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
Is acupuncture safe?
Yes, practiced by a licensed and certified therapist, acupuncture therapy is generally considered to be safe. While there are occasionally side effects at the insertion site including bruising or soreness, they typically subside with no long-term consequences. Before choosing an acupuncturist, be sure the therapist follows best practices by maintaining a clean facility and sanitized equipment and tools.
Is dry needling the same thing as acupuncture?
Dry needling and acupuncture are very similar in technique and have many supplies in common. While both use thin needles in the skin to alleviate pain, however, the effects of dry needling and acupuncture therapies are very different. Dry needling, a relatively recent treatment, has been around for less than thirty years and works by activating the trigger points in and around sore muscles to relieve pain. Conversely, acupuncture therapy has a rich history dating back centuries to ancient Eastern medicinal practices focusing on energy, chi, and flow to promote healing in the body. Although modern-day acupuncture equipment looks much different than its predecessors, the general principles remain the same.
What essential equipment is needed for acupuncture?
While there are many optional supplies to enhance your practice, acupuncture therapy itself only requires a few essential acupuncture supplies to execute an effective treatment. Acupuncture needles are the first must-have. There are four needles most commonly used in acupuncture practices, each with a different thickness and length, to address ailments in different parts of the body. In addition to needles, disposable medical gloves and insertion tubes for the needles are also essential. Lastly, antiseptic wipes or alcohol prep pads are imperative to ensure a sterile environment for both the acupuncture tools and injection site. Maintaining sterile acupuncture equipment and a clean environment must be a top priority.
What types of nonessential supplies can be used to improve acupuncture therapy sessions?
Acupuncture therapy comes in a variety of different forms that will require specific tools and accessories to effectively complete the treatments. Some alternative acupuncture instruments include cupping therapy, electrotherapy, essential oils, and massage products.
Providing alternative procedures can help address symptoms that regular acupuncture therapy cannot achieve. Treatment menu enhancements will also help you diversify and expand your reach to more clients and give you the ability to add value with more targeted care. Building knowledge around relevant herbal and natural supplements can also be a great tool.
How can I become certified in acupuncture?
Becoming a certified acupuncturist can be an involved, but rewarding process. In the US, future acupuncture therapists must attend an accredited program and graduate with a master’s degree. After completing the education, candidates must pass a national certification exam to begin practicing.
Where and when did acupuncture originate?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicinal therapy with roots tracing back to 100 BCE. Evidence suggests that the practice of acupuncture-type therapy started as an organized diagnosis and treatment system for the emperor. Over time, it has evolved to an alternative treatment for all.
