What Can Acupuncture Treat?
Most people associate acupuncture with pain relief. While acupuncture works very well for pain, it works for a wide range of other conditions as well. But the earliest stories that appeared in the news focused on pain and surgical anesthesia, and this image stuck.
In reality, acupuncture can treat a wide range of conditions. In fact the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes over 40 conditions for which acupuncture is effective. A partial list includes allergies, asthma, nausea, IBS, tennis elbow, TMJ, sciatica, headache, migraine, dizziness, diabetes, back pain, arthritis and knee pain.
Acupuncture can also help with weight loss, smoking cessation, stress and insomnia. Many of these conditions are just symptoms of an underlying imbalance in our bodies.
