What do you treat with Acupuncture?


The National Institutes for Health have stated that Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of post-operative dental pain, post-operative and chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting. The NIH further states that acupuncture is useful as an adjunctive treatment or as an alternative to current standard treatments in other conditions, such as addiction, stroke rehabilitation, headache, menstrual cramps, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, myofascial pain, osteoarthritis, low back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and asthma. This limited list is based on the conditions for which the most efficient study models could be designed, further research is likely to uncover additional areas where acupuncture interventions are highly effective. In clinical practice, it has been seen that acupuncture is effective in the treatment of many other conditions and symptoms. These conditions include, but are not limited to, high blood pressure, arrythmias, colds and flus, earaches, sinus infections, allergies, eczema, acne, digestive complaints, diabetes, hemorrhoids, menstrual irregularities, hot flashes, morning sickness, neuralgias, anxiety, arthritis, impotence, sprains, strains and sciatica.
