When considering acupuncture or any other form of pain-management, it is natural to wonder about the scope and frequency of its use. Simply put, patients like to know that their therapy of choice is proven and widely embraced before we commit to it. The reality is that more and more doctors are turning to acupuncture to treat patients suffering from a wide assortment of ailments. Acupuncture has been making significant inroads in the medical community for years. In 2002, more than two million patients underwent the technique for everything from lower-back pain to discomfort from fibromyalgia to chemotherapy side effects.

In 2007, that number increased dramatically and over 3.1 million adult patients and 150,000 children were discovering acupuncture’s various healing benefits. Over 300,000 general-care physicians in the United States integrate acupuncture into their clinical practice. As more and more patients seek to avoid painful and costly surgery, they are exploring other proven alternative techniques to help them manage their pain and illness. Part of the trend may correspond with the increasing need for an alternative to dangerous and addictive opioid painkillers. Acupuncture gains more and more ground with each patient who experiences its healing properties. Come and experience the difference for yourself.
