Acupuncture Information:Acupuncture is an alternative form of medicine that treats patients with needles being inserted into the body. The practice of acupuncture is based off traditional Chinese medicine, and is based on the theory that throughout your body is your chi, or energy. Illness stems from the blocking or imbalance of your chi, and acupuncture helps correct the imbalances in your body. Most often, people seek acupuncturists to relieve pain.
You should see a specialist when you have pain and traditional medications do not work, or if your physician recommends seeing one. When certified acupuncturists begin their procedures, they first inspect the face and tongue, then check your pulse on both hands.
Some related conditions are pain conditions such as headache, cramps, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome; fertility problems, bacterial infections. sub-specialties include pain management, chronic pain, and other pain conditions.
