Treatable Conditions by Oriental Medicine

In November 1977 the National Institutes of Health (NIH) issued a report endorsing the practice of acupuncture for treating a number of different conditions including (but not limited to) headaches, bowel disorders, post-stroke rehabilitation, low back pain, asthma, nausea, addiction, fibromyalgia, tennis elbow, menstrual cramps, and osteoarthritis. The report concluded that acupuncture is an effective therapy and should be integrated into standard medical practice. The report also emphasized that acupuncture is very safe and has few side effects. The World Health Organization (WHO) has endorsed acupuncture and Traditional Oriental Medicine to treat over 43 common disorders.

Some of the common disorders we are treating in our office are:
Gynecological Disorders including infertility (for men & women), support through IVF or IUI treatments, PMS, irregular periods, menopause, PCOS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts and morning sickness.
Disorders of Muscles, Bones, Joints and Nervous System such as migraine headache, arthritis, tendonitis, back, neck and shoulder pain, numbness and neuropathy.
Emotional and Psychological Disorders including depression, anxiety and insomnia.
Respiratory Disorders such as asthma, allergies, sinusitis and bronchitis.
Digestive Disorders including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn's disease, Ulcerative Colitis, diarrhea, and constipation.
Circulatory Disorders such as hypertension, angina pectoris, arteriosclerosis and anemia.
Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat disorders.

Note: Acupuncture is often effective therapy for other chronic and painful debilitating disorders which have no clear explanation or origin.
