Palm Springs, CA – More than a three thousand years ago China started using acupuncture for treating those who suffered from many ailments successfully. Today, it's used in America for treating a variety of pain induced conditions ranging from cramps to osteoarthritis. Inland Injury Care Center provides acupuncture therapy to treat residents in and around the area with excellent outcomes for various conditions.
Acupuncture involves stimulating various points on the body by using small needles that are inserted into these points. The needles are manipulated by hand usually but can be electrically stimulated.
More than 8 million Americans each year receive this treatment according to a National Health Interview survey and this number keeps growing. This is most likely due to other studies that show individuals with severe osteoarthritis have very favorable results for reducing the pain associated with this condition. Acupuncture has proven itself to be very effective at improving one's range of motion and pain reduction.
An acupuncture specialist must be licensed and in order to receive this license they must obtain roughly 300 hours of training. Inland Injury Care Center's professionals are licensed in acupuncture to give area residents the safe and effective alternative treatment they've been looking for.
Although those who suffer with arthritic pain are the most common patients, there are other conditions that this treatment can be helpful for alleviating. Some of the conditions that are successfully treated with acupuncture includes:
• Chronic Low Back Pain
• Carpal Tunnel
• Knee Pain
• And so much more!
Risks Involved With Acupuncture Treatment
Many patients are curious about the risks of acupuncture treatment, which are very low. Inland Injury Care Center's patients have reported minimal bleeding and some soreness at the needle site.
There are some other risks involved with this treatment which include a rare risk of injury to an organ and disease exposure from the use of unsterilized needles. These risks are usually associated with facilities or unprofessional individuals who are not experienced or clean.
