There’s a reason that acupuncture, a therapeutic intervention dating back to China, some 2,500-years ago, is now widely used in the U.S. today, and is still going strong. It works. Don’t let the thought of small needles dissuade you from considering getting acupuncture therapy in Fort Lauderdale. Acupuncture therapy is one of the specialties offered at the Spine and Joint Center in Fort Lauderdale, aimed at helping to relieve pain and manage other conditions and illnesses.
Acupuncture, a system of complementary medicine involves penetrating the skin with very thin needles at specific points on the body. According to Chinese medicine, it corrects the imbalances of energy in the body. But the Mayo Clinic says many Western practitioners view it as a way to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue, and that stimulation boosts our body’s natural painkillers. That’s also our belief here at the Spine and Joint Center of Fort Lauderdale.
Here are some of the conditions and illnesses acupuncture has helped:
- Nausea and vomiting (post-operative and chemotherapy)
- Postoperative dental pain
- Chronic pain
- Anxiety & Depression
- Low back pain
- Drug addiction
- Tennis elbow
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
