Acupuncture can be helpful in maintaining good health and in treating patients with a wide range of health problems. Acupuncture may be used alone or in combination with other complementary or conventional medicine treatments.
Pain management is one of the most common types of conditions treated with acupuncture. It is a great alternative to pain medications, steroid injections and can prevent the need for surgery as well. Treatment with acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be used as a substitute or used in conjunction with both physical therapy and chiropractic care.
Good mental health is fundamental to overall health and is essential to personal well-being and the ability to lead a healthy, balanced, and productive life. According to the U.S. Surgeon General's report on mental health, more than half of all Americans with a severe mental illness fail to seek treatment. Yet overall quality of life is greatly improved when a person with a mental health problem gets an early diagnosis and receives appropriate treatment.
