What can Acupuncture do for you?

The World Health Organization (WHO) on Acupuncture

The use of acupuncture has been shown to effectively treat many types of conditions. In the 2003 official report, Acupuncture: Review and Analysis of Reports on Controlled Clinical Trials, The World Health Organization (WHO), whose authority concerning health-related matters internationally cannot be challenged, compiled a list of symptoms, syndromes, disease processes, pathologies, traumas and conditions that have been proven to be effectively treated by acupuncture. 

There are many other conditions that acupuncture treats effectively. If you have questions about a condition not listed below, be sure to contact us so we can address your specific needs. 

    ▪    low back pain
    ▪    neck pain
    ▪    sciatica

    ▪    tennis elbow
    ▪    knee pain
    ▪    periarthritis of the shoulder

    ▪    sprains

    ▪    facial pain (including craniomandibular disorders)
    ▪    headache
    ▪    dental pain

    ▪    temporomandibular (TMJ) dysfunction

    ▪    rheumatoid arthritis

The foregoing list is absolute concerning acupuncture's effectiveness; however the report continues with three more categories:

   1.  Diseases, symptoms and conditions for which the therapeutic effect of acupuncture has been shown, but further proof is needed (68 specific conditions). These conditions are effectively treated as in the first category; it's just that more trials are necessary to establish the proof scientifically.

    2.  Diseases, symptoms and conditions reporting some therapeutic effects for which acupuncture is worth trying (nine conditions).

    3.  Diseases, symptoms and conditions in which acupuncture may be tried, provided the practitioner has special modern medical knowledge and adequate monitoring equipment (eight conditions).
