I Found an Acupuncture Clinic Near Me On The Upper West Side

I’ve suffered from migraines since my teenage years.  I’ve tried many strategies to control them, including drugs.  A friend suggested that acupuncture might help, but I didn’t like the idea of being poked with needles.

Then I did some research about acupuncture as a way of managing my migraines.

Like me, many people are a bit leery about acupuncture.  But it’s offered effective pain relief to millions of people.  The needles employed aren’t the kind that scared us as kids.  They’re very fine and inserted in prescribed points on your body.  Acupuncture can relieve all kinds of pain, from migraines to musculoskeletal issues.

My friend told me there was an accomplished acupuncturist at Back & Body Medical on the Upper West Side.  She said she’d been visiting her for years and that she’d helped with her pain issues.

So, I booked an appointment to talk to Dr. Kristina Kinch, LAC.  She told me that acupuncture uses extremely fine needles, working from a roadmap of the human body developed over several millennia which reveals points of insertion that relieve pain.

She was clear that acupuncture is completely sterile.  Needles are used only one time and then discarded.  They’re always sterilized, as well as the patient’s body, prior to each session.

I felt reassured by Dr. Kinch and decided to go ahead and try acupuncture for the first time in my life.

With an MA in acupuncture, Dr. Kinch is trained in three styles of acupuncture to relieve pain – traditional Chinese, Japanese and APM (Acupuncture Physical Medicine, which focuses on the muscles).

Because Dr. Kinch practices at Back & Body Medical, she shares their vision of a diversified healthcare model, combining four distinct medical disciplines – acupuncture, sports medicine, physical therapy and chiropractic.  The range of care available at Back & Body allows the doctors there to offer a tailored response to each patient’s need.

I was genuinely impressed by Dr. Kinch and the individual attention she gave me.  She suggested that I also visit the chiropractor at Back & Body, in addition to acupuncture.  She said that combining the two therapeutic models might be just what I needed.

Multi-disciplinarian pain relief.

Since I’ve been visiting Back & Body, there’s been a dramatic decrease in the frequency and intensity of my migraine attacks.  Combining acupuncture with chiropractic has been effective.

I’m grateful my friend recommended Back & Body Medical.  I found an acupuncture clinic on the Upper West Side that offered me integrated care under one roof.  I never could have imagined that combining chiropractic with acupuncture would work.  But I’ve been amazed by how great I feel and my quality of life has improved enormously.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Kinch.  With Dr. Kinch and the team at Back & Body, my migraines no longer control my daily life.  If you’re looking for effective pain relief, reach out to this exceptional resource.
