Dr. Cynthia Seaman, Chicago's leading chiropractor, and chiropractic authority, has recently completed post graduate studies of advanced chiropractic acupuncture protocols for specific conditions. Dr. Seaman has been performing the acupuncture, the ancient traditional Chinese medical treatment, for twenty-three years in her Northwest side Chicago practice.

Dr. Cynthia, as she is affectionately called by her patients, explains, "Very fine, slender, hair like needles are used in stimulating the flow of energy at the acupoints. There is no pain when these needles are inserted or removed." The World Health Organization along with several medical professional associations, as well as the U.S. government's Food and Drug Administration have concluded acupuncture is safe when performed by practitioners who are proficient using sterile equipment.
An individual chiropractic acupuncture session can take as little as twenty minutes when administered by a professional chiropractor. "During this time the patient lies quietly on a table. Sometimes the patient sits in a chair reading a book. The procedure is painless and patients exhibit improvement after in a few treatments," says Dr. Seaman.
"I have often taken post grad classes over the years to stay apprised of the latest modalities in chiropractic care. This advanced acupuncture course allows me to be aware of the most recent findings in the effectiveness of the therapeutic treatment. The new information obtained from the courses allows me to have a more advanced understanding of treating patients with a neuromuscular/skeletal disorder. I can painlessly help them heal, thus relieving pain or a specific disorder without drugs."
Dr. Seaman adds, "For example I can treat a condition such as low back pain, neck pain or hip pain, shoulder pain, herniated disc pain, leg pain from sciatica, arm pain, tennis elbow, even tight muscles (spasms) by using chiropractic acupuncture and achieve excellent results."
Cynthia Seaman, D.C. also offers a smoking cessation program for those who sincerely desire to stop the killer habit. "It's about them wanting to stop. It's not because someone told them to. They've firmly decided, on their own, to stop smoking."
Acupuncture is one of the treatment options, along with massage and physiotherapy, utilized by Dr. Seaman. The Flexion distraction table, the Thompson drop table and the activator device are tools she also uses to achieve gentle non-force manipulation of the spine to guide the body toward healing itself.
