What is Medical Acupuncture?
Medical acupuncture is more than an exotic or ancient practice of treating illnesses using fine needles but includes the benefit of a physicians diagnosis. The medical community has accepted it as an effective treatment option. In the US, almost 3.5 million people admitted they’d had acupuncture. Medical acupuncture works by inserting needles on specific parts of the body to induce healing.
A number of studies revealed that acupuncture is an effective option for treatment of conditions, including osteoarthritis, back and neck pain, shoulder pain, and chronic headache.*
According to The American Academy of Medical Acupuncture (AAMA) “Medical acupuncture is the term used to describe acupuncture performed by a doctor trained and licensed in Western medicine who has also had thorough training in acupuncture as a specialty practice. Such a doctor can use one or the other approach, or a combination of both as the need arises, to treat an illness.” http://www.medicalacupuncture.org
Medical Acupuncture is administered by a physician knowledgeable in both disciplines. As a licensed physician in both Idaho and Wyoming, Edmund C. Boese M.D., D.O. evaluates his patient’s health condition and before treatments are offered he discusses with each patient the type of treatment best suited for them.
Medical Acupuncture is also an alternative approach for non-narcotic acute and chronic pain management and chronic diseases. Get in touch with us to get more information about medical acupuncture and its benefits.
