Northern Anesthesia & Pain Medicine, LLC
Acupuncture is one modality of treatment within Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is increasingly used in the West to help manage problems as diverse as chronic pain (e.g., back and arthritis pain, migraines), stress, addictions (e.g., cigarettes and narcotics) as well as emotional problems (e.g., depression and anxiety.) While endorsed for centuries by a significant percentage of the world’s population, more recently acupuncture is beginning to find support both in basic science, and more importantly clinical outcomes research. One major benefit of undergoing acupuncture at NAPM is that there is close collaboration between both Eastern and Western perspectives on your health issues.
