What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a treatment used to reduce pain and inflammation, encourage healing and improve function.

It involves the insertion of very fine needles at very specific points throughout the body. It is safe and effective and can be used as an alternative to medication.

There is nothing in or on the needle and nothing is injected. The needles themselves cause minimal or no discomfort.

How Does It Work?

The stimulation of specific points encourages your body to produce its own pain relieving chemicals such as endorphins. These chemicals block pain, reduce inflammation and promote healing.

Does It Hurt?
Most often it is not uncomfortable. As with many treatments people experience differing sensations. These sensations can vary from something less than a mosquito bite to a dull achy feeling. The needles are very fine and most often don’t even result in a drop of blood when removed.

What Is Acupuncture Used For?
It is effective at treating a variety of painful conditions that can be either acute or chronic. The treatment can be effective at easing: Low Back Pain, Neck Pain, Headache, Fibromyalgia, Whiplash and Carpal tunnel syndrome link to blog Knee Pain, Shoulder Pain, Sciatica and other painful conditions.

Is It Covered By Insurance?
Many private insurance plans cover  treatment. In some cases the office is able to directly bill your insurance plan for the treatments. WCB and MPIC both  cover acupuncture treatments.


After some very painful back episodes, I was assessed thoroughly, carefully and comfortably. As I explained symptoms I was understood and given many helpful tips and tricks to help curb future damage. By the end of my appointment I was in tears because of the relief and comfort I was finally feeling.  My husband is a patient at Sun and it helped him tremendously! I would strongly recommend Sun Chiropractic to anyone who is unsure of where to go for relief!

I have been seeing Dr. Baron regularly for a recent injury and could not be happier with the care and service at Sun Chiropractic. Both my fiance and myself are patients and we are always very satisfied. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Baron does great work!


Before visiting Sun Chiropractic, I was nervous going because I had a bad experience with a chiropractor a year ago. All I have to say is WOW. Kimberley Castle was amazing. She was so thorough and explained everything to me. I felt welcomed from the moment I walked it. I love the follow up exercises and was happy that Kimberley was able to really pinpoint my pain and is now helping me to get better!!!

When I first met Dr. Minuk, I told him I was scared of chiropractors. He listened to my concerns and made sure I was completely comfortable before starting his assessment. I have recently been seeing Dr. Minuk weekly due to suffering migraines and an seeing improvements on the intensity and frequency of the migraines. This is now not the case. Thank you to the amazing front staff at Sun Chriopractic as well as Dr. Minuk for being so friendly and accommodating. Keep up the good work.


From migraines and back pain to massages and acupuncture the amazing staff at Sun Chiropractic do it all! I can’t thank them enough for all the work they do! I highly recommend them.

I’ve been in two car accidents in the past month. Both times hit from behind. Before I even called MPI I called Dr. Baron and he had me scheduled for the same day. The office staff are caring and helpful. Dr. Baron is thorough in his assessment, and he never rushes through anything. I feel completely at ease in his care.


I've had numerous injuries in the past 10 yrs and the staff at Sun Chiropractic couldn't have been more courteous and caring.  Dr Minuk is the epitomy of what a professional chiropractor should be. If you're looking for a friendly, caring, and compassionate chiropractic office, I HIGHLY recommend Sun Chiropractic.


Dr. Moran is beyond excellent. She is very warm, kind and understanding. I am very nervous about going to the doctor and she makes the experience excellent for me. I hope she know how much I truly appreciate her.


Dr.Moran and her staff are AMAZING! I felt so comfortable with everyone in the office, everyone is soo kind and friendly and  Dr.Moran is very attentive,caring, and understanding with her patients.
