What Does Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine Treat?

Most people think of back pain when they think of acupuncture, however, it is very effective in treating a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions, and it is often used in conjunction with Western Medical treatment.

    Long ago the World Health Organization recognized that Acupuncture and Oriental medicine could be used to treat nearly four dozen common ailments. We can group them into 6 broad categories:
  • Neurological or Musculoskeletal Conditions – arthritis, neuralgia, fibromyalgia, MS, insomnia, dizziness, and neck/shoulder pain,
  • Emotional and Psychological Disorders – depression and anxiety,
  • Circulatory Disorders – hypertension, angina pectoris, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and anemia,
  • Addictions – alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, marijuana and other drugs,
  • Respiratory Disorders – emphysema, sinusitis, allergies and bronchitis,
  • Gastrointestinal Conditions – food allergies, ulcers, chronic diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, intestinal weakness, anorexia and gastritis.
